The Czech government has approved a legal amendment that changes conditions for operating a taxi. The change would create equal conditions for classic and alternative taxis, such as Uber and Lyft. Taximeters would no longer be required and drivers would not have to take road atlas exams. Mobile phone apps can both calculate the price of a trip and plan a route, making those requirements unnecessary.
The amendment now goes to the Chamber of Deputies, the next step toward becoming law.
