Indonesia’s largest taxi group Blue Bird Group Holding has expressed a desire to employ more female drivers.
Blue Bird operates taxis and other tourism services in 13 cities across Indonesia, including Bali, ranging from standard taxis, luxury transport, buses to hotels. Its current fleet is estimated to number nearly 29,000 vehicles.
The president director of Blue Bird, Nono S.A. Purnomo, told the press that of the 36,000 drivers employed by the company only around 100 are female.
Hoping to increase the number of ladies behind the wheel, Purnomo has made assurances that safety will remain the prime consideration for both Blue Bird’s passengers and drivers.
Purnomo said that a female driver could earn Rp. 4 million (US$350) per month.
Purnomo added: “Female taxi driver earn good wages and we never get complaints about their work because they are cautious. So we need more women drivers.”
