Antitrust agst exclusive taxi clauses

After complaint filed by Mytaxi smartphone app

(ANSA) - Rome, July 9 - Italy's antitrust authority on Monday said clauses in agreements governing the main taxi cooperatives in Rome and Milan and their drivers, which give the cooperatives exclusive rights to manage taxi bookings, are restrictive to competition and must end.
    The decision came in response to a complaint filed by the Mytaxi app, which lets users book a taxi from their smartphone.
    This would allow taxi drivers to participate in the service without having to leave their cooperative.
