, BATAM  – Chair of the Kepri Online Driver Association (ADO), Sopandi said, would continue to urge the Riau Islands Province Transportation Agency to immediately implement an online transportation permit in Batam City.

According to him, from the results of the last meeting with the Director General of Land Transportation, the permit for online transportation did not come to light and was only a discourse on discourse.

“Although the temporary agreement for 300 has been determined, but when it starts operating it doesn’t know. From yesterday there was no agreement,” Sopandi said on Friday (4/4/2018).

Sopandi said, in addition to continuing to urge the Provincial Transportation Agency to immediately issue an operating permit, it would also continue to urge the Provincial Government to increase the Online transportation agreement before the Governor’s Regulation (Pergub) of the Online transportation operation permit was issued by the governor.

“We want an online taxi operating permit to be realized, don’t look like there is a market monopoly,” Sopandi said.

Sopandi said that the maximum number of taxi-based operational operations in Batam City was 2,000 taxis, and a minimum of 1,000 taxi units.
