Online Taxis will be Given Designated Stickers

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Transportation Minister Budi Karya Sumadi said that the regulation on designated stickers for online taxis will be discussed this week. If agreed, the app-based taxis will be required to display stickers on the windshield and the rear part of the vehicles.

“This week, I have instructed the Directorate General [of Transportation] to meet all application companies to find a solution,” Budi Karya Sumadi said in Jakarta on November 5.

The Minister said that in a meeting with ride-hailing companies, it was agreed that stickers will be displayed in the front and rear sides of vehicles.

Budi mentioned that the Transportation Ministry will discuss the issue with the Communication and Informatics Ministry regarding the sanctions on non-compliant online taxi operators.

“We may recommend that the app development company stop the operations of the taxis,” he said, before adding that the government will not act arbitrarily. “We will hold discussions with online and conventional taxis; a solution must be found.” 

Minister Budi is hopeful that conventional and online taxis will be able to collaborate following the issuance of Transportation Ministry Regulation No. 108/2017. He added that local governments will facilitate the collaboration.
