The debate has been revived on how to regulate public transport applications

On the eve of the start of a new legislative period, among the various issues pending debate within the City Council is the regulation of mobility applications for public transport of people. are from different political places Coincidence with respect to the initiative presented in May 2022 by Mayor Pablo Javacín, which proposes a gradual modification of the scenario, i.e. Incorporation of some applications that coexist with the radio call system when calling a taxi or remis.

It was announced by official councilor Ciro Sisas (Arriba Rosario) and his counterpart Carlos Cardozo from the Union Pro-Juuntos por el Cambio block. Both councilors are members of the Granted Public Service Commission, which is expected to begin deliberations in the first days of February, before an extended session in the middle of the month (then, starting in early March, as normal term). will be) normal).

“Within the framework of six files drawn up by the various forces, negotiations around the project (raised by Javkin last year) progressed further. The division lay more between taxi license holders than along political lines”, summarizing rated cissus There was and is agreement on the need to include a mobile application in the city Although of course some comments from other proposals will be introduced into the standard. axis will then be “A” Gradual modification of the scenario, which opens the game to other applications located in Rosario or whose administrative structure is here“, she added.

From complicacy Officer quits multinational app like UberIn operation in other cities of Argentina where they connect passengers and drivers, however there are reports that drivers who provide their private car with this modality in Rosario and even in regular traffic operation are found.

Cardozo’s position is more comprehensiveIt means to say that he considers many platforms according to his own. “We have two projects with parliamentary status, with a more comprehensive approach than the one recorded by the mayor. It seems more likely to me that what Javakin has proposed will end up as an ordinance, something intermediate, ”acknowledged Rosario Mobility Entity’s vice president, also depending on the progress of the agreements.

“Cars that work with the app must be licensed to transport people, such as taxis or rimies; It’s not about any particular car, in terms of insurance, controls, GPS, routes”, Cissus told in this regard.

“We understand that with new technology radio is going to lose ground and importance per se as a habit. In any case, I don’t see it as something immediate because There are people who are not used to the apps and will keep calling but the truth is they don’t answer when you call”, analyzed the councilor of Arriba Rosario. In a few words, he defined the present scenario in terms of civic mobility: “Demand service, concentrated market and discontent public,

Cardozo predicted that the final text of the ordinance would be agreed upon in the short term This opens the door for new ways of accessing the service as well as other strategic issues that have been pending in the Council for the past year. And that there are elections in 2023. “They told us the same thing in 2021, that it was very difficult, and we were able to approve the Coexistence Code. We took it forward, however it adds up to 500 articles and is highly significant as it will be valid in the city for at least twenty years, so I am not so pessimistic about the activity this election year”, he concluded. .

nightlife, car care and urban sanitation

night life, regulation of the movement of car attendants and urban cleanliness are others Strategic issues that need treatment Not late but this year’s legislative agenda promises to be a milestone.

Upon amendment of Ordinance No. 7,218 (called Public Shows in 2001), Judicial councilor Norma López advocated for “comprehensive rules that allow access to culture in territories”, For which various voices are being heard. “The eyes of the neighbors must be present. If we continue to discuss a nightlife that is only for the center and the macro-centre, we are wasting time”, he declared, adding that he has several dance projects in his interblock. He proposes to leave behind the centralized view and to build another that considers the reality of the neighborhood.

On this topic, Carlos Cardozo (Pro, JXC) confirmed that The current law should be replaced by a more modern one that “must regulate businessmen investing in nightlife, neighbors and the municipality to co-exist”., In this sense, he insisted on the concept of Special Settlement Areas which he maintained for 10 years. about Ciro Seisas (government party) announced that next March it would present a joint project with other forces and cited as background two hearings held in 2022 to hear the experience of different sectors.
