This is ahead of the full implementation of Ministerial Regulation No. 108 of 2017 on the Implementation of Transport of People With Public Motor Vehicles Not In the Route that governs the Transport of Special Leases.

“The problem of online vehicles has long been socialized, ranging from KIR, SIM, KP (supervision card), stickers, and quotas,” said Director General of Land Transportation Budi Setiyadi in Jakarta, Tuesday (9/1/2018).

There are currently eight provinces that make quota calculations. It also encourages the regulation to be set for each province.
It is targeted at the end of January 2018 that the whole province has resolved so that its regulation will soon come out.

“Once it has been calculated, in February 2018 its law enforcement will begin through the Police,” added Budi.

In the first and second week, there will be a sympathetic rebuke to a special lease vehicle that is not yet in compliance with the regulations. After two weeks the law enforcement will be handed over to the authorities.

With regard to vehicle restrictions or quotas, Budi explained, drivers should follow the rules well.

“For example in Semarang to decide 100 vehicles, so that the rest will become illegal if still operate it,” he asserted.

Budi further states that the government accommodates two shuttles ie taxis that have been around for a long time and the current taxis.

“Application development is a necessity, I also appreciate East Java which has launched a sticker on the lease especially,” he said.
