Centre for Responsible Tourism

(CRT), an organisation backed by Goa Church, today came out in

support of taxi operators who are opposing an app-based cab

service launched by the Goa Tourism Development Corporation.

Father Freddy Braganza, incharge of CRT, said in a

press release that the `GoaMile' service introduced by GTDC is

entirely operated by a Pune-based private firm.

The GTDC's initiative thus only benefits corporates

and not local taxi operators, he alleged.

"Instead of curbing illegal activities

operations, the government engaged a private operator to

introduce app-based taxi service without engaging and

encouraging traditional tourist taxi owners and drivers to

manage their own app for the service," he said.
