TEMPO.CO, Jakarta – The Ministry of Transport has again postponed the increase in fares for taxi online services (ojol) which comes as the second occurrence after initially postponing it on August 14.
Ministry spokeswoman Adita Irawati explained on Sunday that the main reason for not raising the fare of the country’s popular means of transport is the current conditions which do not support the policy.
“The decision took into account the various situations and conditions that have developed within the company,” Adita said in a statement Aug. 28.
The second reason, Adita said, was that the Ministry of Transport needed to get more input from transport stakeholders and experts.
“The Department of Transportation will also immediately notify the public if a decision has been made on the proposed ojol fare increase,” Adita said.
