ILLEGAL taxi operators are one of the major problems that have affected the business of the taxi industry in Fiji.

During the Fiji Taxi Association's national committee meeting in Suva yesterday, Nadi representative, Saiyad Nabi, the managing director of Tavarua Taxis and Tours Limited, said their business continued to be threatened by the illegal operators, particularly minibuses and private vehicles.

He said minibuses that operated between Suva and Lautoka took 90 per cent of their jobs.

"They stop where they are not supposed to and pick passengers from anywhere," he said.

LTA operations manager, Joseva Vosanibola said they were aware of the issue with the minibus and they were trying to address the issue immediately.

He said LTA would seek police assistance to crackdown on illegal operators.
