At the beginning of July, the Finnish laws were changed to deregulate the country’s taxi services. The idea is to bring more competition to provide a better service for consumers. It means that regulation passes from municipalities to the Finnish Transport Safety Agency Trafi and anyone with a valid driving license and able to pass a simple knowledge test could be a licensed taxi driver with a roadworthy vehicle. Taxis will then be no longer linked geographically to their registered area and will be free to ply their trade all over Finland.
