Taxis in Funchal - their replacement deadline has been extended

The Regional Government decided to extend by two years the deadline for replacing passenger transport vehicles in taxis with more than 15 years of registration. According to JM, taxi sector professionals will have until December 2027 to find new solutions. Regional secretary for Equipment and Infrastructures, Pedro Fino, speaking to the newspaper, explains that the postponement is based on the difficulties faced by taxi drivers during the pandemic.

The front page also highlights bananas. The banana sector management company GESBA plans to increase producers’ income. In an interview with JM, the company’s manager, Artur Lima, reveals that he plans to increase five cents per kilo in the amount to be paid for direct delivery of the product.

A new, vastly improved “search” facility has been introduced allowing readers to search (box in the sidebar above) on any word or phrase used in any of the posts over the last sixteen years. Previously the search facility only returned matches on headings rather than the entire content. It remains to be seen whether this will slow the blog down – fingers crossed! If it works it should move the blog even further ahead of the increasing number of imitators, providing a huge resource for visitors and residents.
