We also go through the Solidarity and Opportunities Fund to seek aid, financing possibilities for those taxi drivers who suffered from the pandemic and who are currently seized and finally, the commitment to work permanently to try to intervene in the complex situation of informal transport in some corridors of the city was reached” said Mayor Ospina.
