The Transportation Ministry has announced the base fare for app-based ojek (motorcycle taxi) at Rp 10,000 (71 US cents) despite the different demands made by drivers and app providers.

“The fare for less than 5 kilometers is Rp 10,000,” said the ministry’s land and road transportation director general, Budi Setiyadi, on Thursday as quoted by kontan.co.id.

He said the base fare had been agreed to by the drivers and app providers, but neither party had agreed to the per kilometer fare as the drivers had demanded Rp 3,000 per km, while providers Rp 2,400 per km.

Previously, Budi said the fare for app-based ojek would be stipulated in a separate regulation.

“There are a number of proposals, including from the drivers,” Budi said. 

The government previously issued Transportation Ministerial Regulation No. 12/2019.

The regulation, which was signed by Minister Budi Karya Sumadi on March 11, aimed to prevent misconduct related to motorcycles used as a means of public transportation. (bbn)
