(3/1/2010)

The latest chapter in the continuing saga of challenges to the continued operation of Blue Bird Taxis or PT Praja Bali Transportasi has seen the provincial government announce that a meeting of a judicial team of government officials have concluded the troubled taxi service is "technically legal." Sitting on the judicial team were representatives of various elements of the provincial government: the transportation, communication and information department; the law bureau; the economic and development department, police, the public transportation organization, the planning bureau and local legislators.

As reported by Bali Post, the Chairman of the judicial team, Ketut Wija, delivered the group's decision on Wednesday, February 24, 2010. He said the team's finding was that the permits for the 930 car fleet of taxis does not violate the law under licenses held by PT Praja Bali Transportasi (500 units), Ngurah Rai Taksi Bali (80 units), Komotra (100 units), Kowinu (75 units), Wahana Darma (100 units) and Koperasi Taksi Jimbaran (75 units).

The team has recommended that operational licenses for new taxis be delayed until protests by competing taxi companies end. They have, however, authorized that the principle permits which have already been issued for PT Praja Bali Transportasi (Bali Taxi) (250 units) and Ngurah Rai Taxi Bali (100 units) should proceed.

The Chairman of the judicial team blamed recent protests on miscommunication and poor coordination between drivers and operators, together with the declining income of Bali's taxi drivers.

The team rejected protests from drivers working for competing taxi operation who contend the Bali Taxi operation is illegal and should be closed down. Moreover, the team concluded that if the Bali Taxi operation were closed this would expose the provincial government to subsequent administrative court action.
