Regulator swoops on Galway city

Scores of unlicensed taxi drivers who are operating illegally in the city allegedly ‘went underground’ last weekend following the visit of Taxi Regulator Enforcement Officers to Galway.

The Taxi Regulator failed to comment on the number of unscrupulous drivers who were caught in the swoop, however the Galway City Tribune understands that a number of unlicensed taxis were apprehended by the inspectors.

In addition, a number of licensed and legitimate taxi drivers were fined in the operation for picking up fares in places that are not designated taxi ranks.

Taxi representatives in the city are blaming Galway City Council for these fines and claim that the Council is not providing enough taxi rank space.
