60% of Bulgarian taxis are phantoms

Date: 04.11.2005

About 60% of the 60,000 taxis operating in Bulgaria are phantoms, according to Jordan Mirchev, chairman of the Parliamentary Transport Commission said Thursday.

Data from the agency shows that no more than 25,000 of the taxis in the country are properly registered.

The announcement came after the Parliament introduced new automobile legislation stating that as of the end of 2006 vehicles that have been driven for more than 10 years could not be used as taxis. The goal of this law is to avoid the usage of old automobiles that did not comply with EU requirements, Transport Minister Petar Mutafchiev announced. Additional measures are planned against the import of old vehicles, he added.

The MPs also decided that the public transportation buses could not be older than nine years, and those used for international transportation should have been in exploitation for no more than four years.
