JAKARTA, NETRALNEWS.COM – Government has not yet set the ceiling and floor limit for online or application-based taxi fare, although the deadline is close, on the first of July. Director General of Land Transportation Pudji Hartanto said in Jakarta on Thursday (22/6/2017) that the fare policy is currently in discussion stage with regional chiefs.
He said that inputs are gathered from regional chiefs from Jakarta, West Java, Central Java, East Java and Bali. He added that the limit will be different for each region, in line with the condition and average income of the region.
The Head of Land Transport Organization (Organda), Adrianto Djokosoetono, hoped that the fare should be close to regular taxi fare. He said that he understand that the limit setting is a difficult matter, as regular taxis use static system whilst online taxis use dynamic system.
