They are doing it again this Friday, April 9, always with the objective of being able to take the mixed lanes dedicated to bikes and buses.

These services must be performed under the best conditions and time. These axes are essential to maintaining the activity ”assure the taxi craftsmen.
This is why, under a new event this Friday, April 9, the taxi craftsmen are asking to be received by the prefect of Hérault Jacques Witkowski and the mayor of Montpellier Michaël Delafosse in order “to find solutions in a constructive spirit. reconciling ecological and economic issues ”.
