Jakarta – Online taxi passengers starting on June 19 will get compensation from Jasa Raharja if they get an accident.

This was conveyed by the Director of Jasa Raharja Operations Amos Sampetoding to several media in Jakarta. “The first one starts with Go-Car, because this application comes from Indonesia, others follow like Grab,” he said with a smile.

Amos said this protection was only given to four-wheeled online taxi passengers, while two wheels or motorcycles had not been provided. This is inseparable from the fact that motorbikes have not been ratified as public transport

“In accordance with the law, public transportation in Indonesia is only 4 wheels, so we cover four-wheeled online taxis. Two wheels are not yet, because it is not included in public transportation, unless the government gives discretion so we can cover.19 June is because on that date the regulations on online taxation apply, “he said.

As a BUMN providing compensation for accident victims, Jasa Raharja has prepared special applications on mobile phones to make it easier for communities to report.

The JRku application can be downloaded on the Google Play Store and App Store for iOS. Through the application, users can check the validity period of the Traffic Accident Funding Donation (SWDKLLJ), the community can also report if there are accidents of public transportation equipment and traffic accidents.
