Taxi drivers across the country have gone on strike over the rise of online taxi service Uber and Cabify.
Cities had their taxi service brought to a standstill after drivers raised complaints over the practices empolyed by some drivers. However Cabify and Uber deny the accusations.
The Spanish Taxi Federation Fedetaxi has called for the creation of a publicly run website or app that will allow people to book a taxi anywhere nationally. The idea is to be presented to Congress after a march in Madrid today.
