The Ministry of Transportation continues to strive to prevent any demonstrations from online motorcycle taxi drivers during the opening of the 2018 Asian Games. A mediation meeting held on Friday last week has led to a tariff increase commitment from Grab Indonesia. The government is also asking Go-Jek to offset Grab’s tariff.
The ministry and the Jakarta Police (Polda Metro Jaya) organised a separate meeting between drivers and the two app companies last Friday. Management was asked to raise the basic passenger tariff by RP 1,600 to a minimum of RP 3,000 per kilometre.
