Ride-hailing apps, conventional taxi companies must compete fairly, says Transportation Minister

Transportation Minister Budi Karya Sumadi has stressed that both ride-hailing apps and conventional taxi companies have to be ready to compete fairly to ease tension among drivers of both transportation modes as clashes were frequently occurring in many regions.

He said the revision of Transportation Ministerial Regulation No. 32/2016 on non-route public transportation (taxi) 1 is to regulate fair competition between the two groups.

He said current practices of ride-hailing apps were not fair to conventional taxi companies as the operators of the former could decide the fares, reducing the rates to attract passengers during the normal time, but increasing them during the peak hours.
