Revenue from contributions paid by platforms shows that travel halved in the second half of 2020.
The passenger car trade in non-marked vehicles (TVDE) has generated more than €5.2 million for the state, since it was legalized three years ago. The epidemic caused a significant decrease in operators’ revenues. The contribution to the state, which is paid by electronic platforms such as Uber or Bolt, per trip halved between July and December 2020, compared to the same period in 2019. This year, there is already some recovery, although it is still minor. of sums collected in the recent past.
Despite the difficulties, the number of licensed platforms continues to increase, as does the number of companies offering TVDE service and drivers. Although this growth has slowed. In April 2020, there were 24,909 certified drivers, and in just three months, another 4,000 drivers joined the business. Today, the Institute for Mobility and Transport recognizes a slowdown in this profession. On July 1, this year, 30,627 drivers were certified, that is, only 5871 drivers were driving TVDE cars in 15 months.
