"Especially for Padang and Bukittinggi, it will soon be drafted and we will refer to the ministerial regulation," Vice Governor of West Sumatra Nasrul Abit stated in Padang on Thursday.
According to the rules issued by Minister of Transportation, it is a law that becomes a guide in making policy about the matter.
On the other hand he conveyed to transportation managers whose name technology is inevitable as people will choose a more practical and easy service.
He hopes that conventional transport managers must adapt and can survive with existing conditions.
"So it can no longer be countered by demos, technology knows no bounds for it to be ready for it," he said.
Besides, he suggested that the banning group should adjust instead of forbid because it will be left behind by consumers.
Meanwhile, the Business Competition Supervisory Commission (KPPU) stated that community organizations such as youth groups are not entitled to prohibit public transportation such as motorcycle taxis operate in certain locations because they have no authority over them.
"If there are community groups or conventional motorcycle taxis prohibiting an online transportation operating in a place, there is no legal basis," KPPU field representative of Medan Abdul Hakim Pasaribu told.
According to him, if there is a conventional motorcycle or taxi driver who refuses the presence of online transportation, it is a natural thing but they have no right to ban because the legal domain is the authority of the government. (cha)
