More and more the "new looking" taxis can be seen on the streets. The most significant change is a 30 cm wide stripe with a yellow/black or black/white checkerboard pattern. All independent taxi operators have to change their vehicles to the new specification within the next months.

Most of the "yellow" taxis belong to registered companies or syndicates, whereby individual or independent operators will have cars in all sorts of colors...

This new design is once again an attempt to regulate the taxi services, but currently only adding to the confusion of all the different variations circulating the streets in Peru.

Minimum visual identification requirements for the vehicles used as taxis:
