Madrid Taxi passengers can now again be seated in the front seats

If until now in a Madrid taxi it was possible to take only the rear seats, leaving the front seat next to the driver empty, then from August 16 in the Madrid community this restriction was canceled. Thus, in taxis, VTC cars and other rental cars with a driver with a capacity of up to nine seats, it is already possible to occupy all the seats intended for passengers.

This seat limit was introduced in May 2020 due to the pandemic … Now the lifting of this restriction has been published in the Official Gazette of the Community of Madrid (BOCM). Local official taxis are reported to be gradually returning to normal operations and have enthusiastically embraced the lifting of restrictions.
