Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – Ministry of Transportation (Ministry of Transportation) has denied issuing an online taxi in the Minister of Transportation Regulation (Permenhub) Number 108 of 2017 concerning the Implementation of People Transportation with Public Vehicles Not in Route.
Director General of Land Transportation of the Ministry of Transportation, Budi Setiadi, revealed that currently his party is indeed finalizing specific rules for online taxis. However, this does not mean that Permenhub 108 changes or is invalid.
“There are two possibilities, we will revise it or make it a new rule. The draft is ready,” Budi said when contacted by CNBC Indonesia on Saturday (4/14/2018). He said at this time the Ministry of Transportation would invite a number of related parties to receive input which would be followed by a focus group discussion to finalize.
“So the rules are fixed for online taxis. There is no change. We add how the applicator company can become a transportation company,” he explained.
Previously, word circulated among online taxi driver partners that the Government would annul Permenhub 108, along with several demonstrations against the regulation.
