Sources told Newsbook.com.mt that around 80 cabs, based in Malta, offered their service during the Gozo Carnival weekend. This has sparked a reaction by transport operators in Gozo, especially white taxis.

The Gozo Tourism Association (GTA) is calling on Authorities to guarantee a fair level playing field for all operators in this transport sector. The GTA issued its reaction after noticing that during the carnival weekend chauffeur-driven transport in Gozo was also serviced by a couple of transport providers based in Malta.

In a press statement, the Gozo Tourism Association said it is appealing to the Authorities to assure that the legislation for the provision of the chauffeur driven services is adhered to, by all service providers without exception.

The Association said that authorities need to safeguard also the interests of the law-abiding chauffeur-driven service providers on Gozo.
