Hey there,

Twenty two years ago, a group of professional drivers, lawyers dreamt up a plan that would make transport industry fair for everyone. Their vision was to make sure that transports comunity have affordable access to transport services at all times.

So they created "U.N.C.A.L.", a place where carriers and customers can find services at afordabile prices, that`s why they founded a NGO that is based on the principles of meritocracy. No sneaky fees, no contracts. Just a comunity wich have the same values as it should always be. And every carrier and customer (all 650,000 of them!) who's joined us since, has been a part of that journey. And a part of our community.

With the cost of living rising and the idea of having to pay huge lump sums for transports services becomes even more daunting, it's more important than ever to keep building the "U.N.C.A.L."community.

We're challenging the old school transport industry world and changing the game for good.

So, you in?

All the best,

Following the adoption of Law no. 38/2003 on taxi and rental transport and imposing the obligation of dispatching for individuals authorized in taxi transport, the activity of the Association focused on the activity of taxi dispatching, as a way of accomplishment of the statutory objectives, through the memoranda formulated at the Romanian Road Authority and the Ministry of Transport, as well as through the actions formulated in court for the modification of the normative administrative acts issued by the Romanian Ministry of Transport and the Road Authority, being the first non-patrimonial Association taxi by final and irrevocable court decision in 2004. In the period 2004-2008, the Association performed the activity of taxi dispatcher to its members, a service from which they benefited by virtue of membership.
By Law no. 92/2007, the taxi transport was included in the sphere of public transport and the authorization authority from the Romanian Road Authority in the Bucharest City Hall was modified. Since the modification of the authorization authority in the field of taxi transport, the Association has carried out continuous activity to defend the rights of individuals authorized in taxi transport at the Bucharest City Hall-Department of Transport, Roads and Traffic Systematization. Thus, on the occasion of the public debate of the draft decision on the approval of the Framework Regulation, of the Specifications and of the contract of assignment in delegated management for the organization and execution of the local public transport service in taxi regime, subsequently adopted by H.C.G.M.B. no. 178/2008, the undersigned requested the regulation of the documents necessary for obtaining the taxi dispatcher authorization and by the associations and foundations so that the natural persons authorized in the taxi transport can benefit from the taxi dispatcher also within the professional associations that defend their rights, with all the more so as it was necessary to regulate the documents necessary to obtain the taxi dispatcher authorization and for the associations and foundations as legal entities that fall within the scope of regulation of the provisions of art. 15 paragraph 1 of Law no. 38/2003 but H.C.G.M.B. no. 178/2008 was adopted without containing regulations for associations and foundations.
Since the modification of the licensing authority, the Association has carried out a continuous activity for defending the rights of freelance drivers, the main purpose of the Association, consisting in participating in public debates, recommendations made during the public debate of the draft decision subsequently adopted by H.C.G.M.B. no. 178/2008 and the draft amendment to annexes no. 2 and 3 of the H.C.G.M.B. no. 178/2008, strikes and protests organized both by the Association and in collaboration with other non-patrimonial associations in the field, according to Law no. 60/1991, but also the individual protest of the legal representative of the Association, Mr. Dicu Dumitru regarding the fact that Mr. Adriean Videanu - former mayor general - did not allow the Association to participate in the public debate of the draft decisions regarding the organization and execution of the local public transport service by taxi (although after the protest, the former mayor general allowed the Association to participate in meetings on transport activity in taxi system, did not take into account the recommendations made and did not justify not taking the recommendations made by the undersigned).
The association did not carry out taxi dispatching activity during 2008-2011 as the new licensing authority unjustifiably refused to exchange the taxi dispatcher license with the new similar document, according to its legal obligation, which is why the Association requested in court to oblige it to the exchange of the taxi dispatcher license, the Bucharest City Hall being obliged by a final and irrevocable court decision pronounced in 2011 to exchange the taxi dispatcher license with the new similar document.
After the issuance of the taxi dispatching authorization in 2011, the Association resumed the activity of taxi dispatching activity to its members, an activity it performed until the beginning of 2016, when it had to suspend it again because the taxi dispatching license was issued. based on a final and irrevocable court decision, it was withdrawn.
Against the disposition of withdrawing the taxi dispatcher authorization, the Association filed an action in court, the case being pending since 2016, the period in which the Association defended its existence as a non-patrimonial association as the authorization authority twice requested the dissolution of the association. the actions were dismissed.
Although the Association was established in 2002, it could not develop another non-profit activity in the field of transport as the licensing authorities systematically prevented the development of the association either by refusing to issue a taxi dispatcher license, by refusing to exchange a taxi dispatcher license with taxi dispatcher, or by withdrawing the taxi dispatcher authorization upon issuance of which the authorization authority had been obliged by court decision, all documents authorizing the activity of taxi dispatcher being obtained by the Association only by final and irrevocable court decisions.
In order to fulfill the main purpose of the Association for the Defense of the Rights of Freelance Drivers, the Association created this site, through the exclusive financial support of the legal representative, to offer its members, freelance drivers, the opportunity to benefit from the proposed services. as a way of achieving the objectives provided in the Statute.
