– Minister of Transportation, Budi Karya Sumadi, conducted a socialization of the Revision of Regulation of the Minister of Transportation (Permenhub) Number 32 Year 2016 to the drivers of public transportation, both on-line and conventional transportation, at Jakarta City Hall, Sunday, March 26, 2017.

In the revision, there are regulations that are deemed unprofitable for online transport, namely the lower tariff rates and upper limit rates. Related to that, Budi said, the tariff limitation will be done transparently, so as not to harm all parties.

“There is a difference between the driver and the company, in this new way, all transparent, we calculate that the level of profit is still gained, but also give a certainty to the driver so we can discuss it closely together,” he explained.

Head of Jabodetabek Transportation Management Agency (BPTJ), Elly Adriani Sinaga, added that transparency about tariff limits is very much needed.

“All have understood Permenhub Number 32, the most fuss is the tariff, so this tariff should all be transparent, so there is nothing wrong,” said Elly.

Related to the tariff, Elly explained, the figure will be calculated based on the operational cost of the vehicle. “It’s easy to calculate the tariff, based on vehicle operating costs plus how much profit to make,” he said. (One)
