Crackdown on Unlicensed Tourist Transportation

(1/6/2007)

Numerous unlicensed busses, van and sedans transporting tourists across the island are fueling calls by the Bali Association of Tourist Transport (PAWIBA) for a tough crackdown on gypsy transportation providers.

Despite current regulations which require all tourism transportation to display supplemental license tags - know locally as izin pariwisata, many vehicles operate without the required tags making the offending vehicles liable to possible fines and immediate impoundment when discovered transporting tourists illegally.

The Chairman of PAWABI – Bali, Bagus Soediana, blamed the current abundance of illegal transportation operators for the oversupply of tourist transport and the resulting unhealthy price competition. That price competition, according to Soediana, is causing Bali's licensed armada to operate at rates that are unsustainable for necessary periodic vehicle replacement.

New Sticker System to Be Introduced

To assist the planned crackdown on illegal transport operators, Soediana recently told the Indonesian-language Bisnis Bali that memberships stickers will soon be introduced for licensed vehicles operated by Pawiba members to assist in the identification off illegal operators during the coming crackdown.

Pawiba hopes to have the stickers available for members vehicles in January 2007 in anticipation of enforcement steps to follow in the months and weeks thereafter.
