Despite findings by a judicial review board that Blue Bird Taxi and its Bali registered brand of PT Praja Bali Transportasi meet the letter of the law for their popular Bali taxi operation [See: The Blue Bird of Happiness Gets a Balinese Reprieve], controversy continues to surround Bali's taxi operators.

Hundred of taxi drivers participated in rallies in Bali on Thursday, March 11, 2010, demanding the Bali government rescind plans to allow Blue Bird to add 250 taxis to its current fleet of 750. The protesters, comprised of drivers from Wahana Taksi Bali, Ngurah Rai Taksi Bali, Komotra Taksi Bali and Kowinu Taksi Bali - staged rolling protests starting from Kuta's Sunset Road to the Bali House of Representatives (DPRD) and ending at the Governor's office. Carrying posters the called for the closure of Blue Bird and accusations that the company was "Killing the Balinese People - the protesters maintain that the 2,200 taxis already operating on the island is sufficient to meet demand.

When legislators promised to recommend to the Governor a delay in the introduction of more taxis on Bali's streets, the protesters remained steadfast, insisting on an immediate meeting with the Governor so he could hear their demand for a closure of Blue Bird.

Local news reports suggest that the Governor is prepared to endorse the appeasement of delaying the introduction of new taxis into the Blue Bird. fleet.
