Hours that Palma's taxi-drivers work are not going to be increased. This had been a request from taxi associations in response to what has been described as a shortage of taxis at certain times. Palma's transport councillor Joan Ferrer had already pretty much ruled out an increase in hours and he has now confirmed this. He says that issues with taxi supply are specific ones on account of a record number of tourists, but the town hall has considered the need for standardisation of the taxi service and the consensus within the majority in the taxi sector, which rejects greater liberalisation of hours.
