This through a statement addressed to Carlos Canales, president of Canatur, and it expresses the desire to continue working together with the objective that more companies in the tourism sector have formal transportation that have the authorization of the Ministry of Transportation and Communications.

“It is crucial that Canatur members verify that their drivers have the appropriate driver’s license to provide the transport service. And that the units have the Certificate of Vehicle Technical Inspection (CITV) and the Mandatory Traffic Accident Insurance (SOAT) in force ”, emphasized Cama.

The authority warned that some tourism companies offer services in the country in different modalities, including full day, without adhering to current regulations, especially in long holidays, such as next week on the occasion of August 30 .
