Jakarta – Until now Uber taxi is still considered illegal in Jakarta. Dishub DKI proposed several conditions for this online-based taxi to operate legally.

“We are still open space with some conditions,” said Kadishub DKI Andri Yansyah after meeting with representatives of Go-Jek, Uber and GrabTaxi in his office in Jatibaru, Tanah Abang, Central Jakarta, Friday (7/8/2015).

This requirement is that Uber must be a legal entity, have a business domicile, have a business license and have five fleet units. In addition, this taxi must also have a swimming pool that can be used for car care and maintenance. Uber administration readiness should also exist. This Uber requirement also applies to GrabTaxi which has a system similar to Uber.

“The existing car must also be tested,” he said.

Andri said, Dishub still open space for Uber and GrabTaxi in order to meet the requirements. But he insisted that there were violations to be dealt with.

“Unofficial and unqualified taxi cars will be disciplined,” he said.
