Too Many Taxis in Kuta?

Too Many Taxi Cabs Chasing Too Few Passengers are Hurting Bali's Image, According to Local Law Maker.

(7/22/2006) I Nyoman Bagiana, a member of Commission A of the Regional Parliament for Badung (DPRD), recently told the Indonesian-language DenPost that it's high time that police and local transportation officials review the number of licenses issued to local taxi operators.

Bagiana’s concerns are tied to the high number of taxis operating in Kuta that far exceed current demand levels in the current business downturn in Bali. This has resulted in a large number of idle taxis being illegally parked by their drivers on sidewalks and in no parking areas on the already narrow streets and byways of Kuta.

The Kuta Based local legislator is calling on the Transportation Authority of Badung, the Police and related government bodies to undertake a study of Bali's transportation needs in order to stem the current over supply and prevent further damage to Kuta and Bali's image.
