Australians get new right to pick fully vaccinated taxi driver

·

One of Australia’s largest taxi companies, 13Cabs, is making waves by allowing its passengers to choose a fully vaccinated driver for their ride.

According to The Daily Telegraph, Chief Operating Officer of 13Cabs, Stuart Overell, said they were already fielding calls from passengers asking if drivers had been vaccinated so they decided to implement a new plan.

The company will now be collecting COVID-19 certificates for all their drivers, with bookings soon to be made available via the 13Cabs app which will only be serviced by vaccinated drivers.

13Cabs is allowing its passengers to choose a fully vaccinated driver for their ride.

Taxi driver, George Valiotis, is one of the thousands who has welcomed the decision, saying that as a frontline worker it was necessary to do this during “challenging times.”

“We look after our communities, which includes vulnerable passengers and essential workers,” Mr Valiotis told The Daily Telegraph.

“It’s also vital we look after ourselves, our passengers and our communities. We know being vaccinated supports our important work to continue safely.”
