“Too many discounts cause drivers to lack revenue,” the Minister of Transportation said.

The government will soon issue a revision to the Minister of Transportation regarding online taxis.

Jakarta – The government will soon issue a revision to the Minister of Transportation Regulation No. 108/2017 concerning Organizing People Transportation with Non-Public Motor Vehicles Online routes or taxis.

The Minister of Transportation, Budi Karya Sumadi conveyed, one thing was focused on the new rules regarding tariffs, which could affect the welfare of drivers.

“For the revision of the rules we have signed, it will be given to the Ministry of Law and Human Rights. This is related to tariffs, I hope that there are not too many discounts because discounts result in drivers having less income. If they don’t, they have to work more. , “Budi Karya Sumadi said, on the sidelines of the Grab Carnival, in Jakarta, Saturday (12/22).

The Minister of Transportation also appreciated what Grab had done so far with its driver partners. One of them is the Grab Carnival activity as a venue for friendship between driver partners and family members.

“I hope operators (online transportation) always pay attention to their driver partners because good relationships can generate enthusiasm, so that in the end they can provide good service,” Budi said.
