“According to an extensive study by a group of experts on behalf of the Ministry of Transport, which was published by the Ministry last year and parts of which went under academic scrutiny and were also published in international scientific journals, the liberalisation of licensing for the profession of taxi drivers in Greece will create 2,000 new jobs, will reduce average production costs in the country by 0.03%, will improve the service quality indexes that the Ministry uses to monitor the sector by 20% in the next five years, will reduce the private use of cars in the main metropolitan areas by 2% and traffic congestion by 1.2%, and it will reduce average waiting times for users by 3′ per journey.”
