The Non-Governmental Organization "Union of Taxi Drivers in Montenegro" appealed again to the competent authorities in the capital Podgorica to undertake adequate measures to solve the accumulated problems in the field of taxi transportation.

The Secretariat for Communal Affairs and Transport issued a resolution for companies related to usage of taxi stands at 12 locations in Podgorica.

"After visiting the assigned locations, it was noted that the taxi stand at the parking lot on the north-eastern side of the City Stadium is for use, i.e., fulfills the necessary conditions," highlighted the Union.

They explained that by the decision on the organization and manner of carrying out taxi transport, the stands should be marked with the appropriate horizontal and vertical signaling.

The remaining 11 taxi stands, which are not properly marked, are at Djoka Mirasevic street in Block Six, on the south side of Block 5 at the entrance from Boulevard Mihail Lalic, at Nikola Tesla street, near the residential buildings in Zagoric, the unattended parking near “Kom” stadium in Zlatica, the unguarded parking spaces at Stari aerodrome across the KIPS ceramic salon, Boulevard Stanko Dragojevic, Velimir Terzic street, Boulevard Mitra Bakic, at the intersection with Boulevard Sava Kovacevic, in front of the Biotechnical Institute, on the Boulevard St. Peter Cetinjinski in front of the "Sport cafe", and at March 8 street in Zabjelo," said the Union. 

They emphasized that they do not know on what basis the legal regulations Secretariat for Communal Affairs and Traffic was guided when assigning taxi stands since the same does not meet the necessary criteria. 

"We are asking the Secretariat about the criteria for a taxi stand, and why we all don't have the same rights and conditions for work," concluded the Union.
