Under a new Uber Law, Madeira will allow a maximum of 40 TVDE vehicles to operate on the island, with a maximum of 3 vehicles per operator. These are the main changes to the national legislation that will be approved by the Regional Assembly today, the 24th of June.
The Permanent Specialised Commission votes this afternoon to adopt the national legislation (‘Uber law’), with the majority of PSD (Social Democratic Party) and CDS (People’s Popular Party) members expected to approve the motion and that the visible TVDE tag on vehicles is “non-removable”.
According to local newspaper, JM, the vehicles used in the provision of TVDE services in the Region must operate without any external sign indicating the type of service they provide, with the exception of a non-removable badge, visible from the outside, in terms to be defined by order of the DRETT (Direção Regional de Economia e Transportes Terrestres).
