Bali Government May Reconsider Taxi Quotas

Government Calls a Temporary Halt to New Taxi Licenses in the Face of Protests from Taxi Drivers.

(12/28/2009) According to Beritabali.com, the government of Bali may reconsider its position on the issuance of new taxi licenses following demonstrations and protests by hundreds of taxi drivers opposed to more taxis being allowed to operated on the island.

Governor Made Mangku Pastika said the government has been issuing licenses for additional taxis based on requests from taxi operators, the need to replace aging vehicles in the current armada, and a study which showed Bali needs 3,500 taxis by 2012.

The size of the current taxi armada in Bali stands at 1,900 from among a total of 2,000 licenses issued.
