In 1963 the government legalized “pirate” cars turning them into taxis. The fleet then increased dramatically for that time. Taxis were at that time the only way to offer visitors quality transport services. The famous “caravans” were created transporting tourists of that time sightseeing throughout the island. In 1967 the dictatorship issued taxi licences massively. In 1970 in urban areas the meter was established by law and used. Right after the fall of the dictators the city of Corfu had 146 taxi cars and the surrounding areas about 30.
In 1972 the co-operation of the taxi owners was established called “Taxiarxis”. There were 6 taxi stations created. In every station there was a phone for the best service of the customers.
The need for quality services was and remains the main drive of this co-operation.
In 1983 the Radiotaxi of Corfu was founded, one of the very first Radio taxi network of Greece. There were no rules no legislation no framework by the government but we made it. In 1987 the state issued a bill the 482 P/D. At that time the Union of Radiotaxi Owners of Corfu was established continuing to provide upgraded services to all passengers and members. The need for high quality services was of most importance.
After constant talks with the government the legislation was finally taking shape. The union was then transformed into a co-operation and further development was now feasible.
Today the co-op has 187 taxis all of new technology respecting the environment. It has 8 staff members running the office and has the capacity to sign transport agreements.
