West Java Administration Bans Online Transportation Services

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The West Java government on Monday, October 9, announced bans online-based transportation services after a negotiation with the West Java Transportation Aspiration Alliance Forum (WAAT).

Bandung Mayor Ridwan Kamil extended the announcement via his Instagram account.

“Based on a press conference held by the West Java Transportation Agency on October 9, 2017, public transportation drivers canceled their plan to launch a strike,” Ridwan Kamil said on Monday.

In addition to banning online transportation services, the West Java administration said that they will consult with police and the central government to decide steps to be taken further.

The West Java administration also called on all stakeholders to maintain order, security, and conduciveness when providing public transportation services.

The WAAT finally decided to postpone the strike that was scheduled to be launched on October 10-13, 2017.

However, the decision sparked protests among Ridwan Kamil’s followers on social media. Most of them complained about the difficulties of finding convenient public transportation in Bandung.
