(10/14/2011)

Bisnis Bali reports that taxi drivers in Bali are concerned over the growing popularity of the new Sarbagita Bus Service, with drivers claiming many tourist visitors are abandoning taxis in favor of a ride on the bus.

The chairman of the taxi cooperative Komotra, H. Hasbi Asegaf, said on Tuesday, October 11, 2011, admitted that the newly introduced bus service has yet to have a significant impact on the income of Bali’s taxi drivers. Said Asegaf:  “But, based on the complaints of our members, there is a small effect on the financial turnover of taxi drivers. Passengers who use to take taxis noware beginning to shift to the Sarbagita bus system, especially from Sanur to Nusa Dua."

Acknowledging that the purpose of the new bus system is to reduce traffic congestion in Bali, Asegaf admitted that his members must first observe the future developments of the Sarbagita Bus System. Hopefully, he added, the outcome will see the bus system reduce congestion while finding a supporting role for the island’s taxi fleet.
