On June 8, online ojek or motorcycle taxis in Indonesia have been allowed to operate again. This was confirmed by Jakarta Police.
“Online motorcycle taxis may resume operation at 100 percent capacity starting today (June 8) but they must follow COVID-19 health protocol. Drivers should carry hand sanitizers at all times and passengers should bring their own helmet,” said Jakarta Police spokesman Chief Comr. Yusri Yunus.
There are some changes, however, such as a hard plastic screen between the rider and the passenger to follow the health protocol. Grab and Gojek ride-hailing services have also prepared new guidelines for better hygiene and protection of its customers.
Wearing of face mask always is required among Gojek driver-partners and they must always have hand sanitizers. The passengers are advised to also wear a mask and bring their own helmet.
Grab on the other hand, made
several improvements on its GrabProtect feature. This is to ensure
its GrabBike scooters are always kept safe and clean. A hard
plastic separator between the rider and the passenger on the GrabBike scooters was
also installed to minimize contact of rider and passenger.
It the past two months, motorcycle taxis in Indonesia were only allowed to deliver food or goods. Jakarta city has now entered the first phase of a transition period to relax its large-scale social restriction that is why motorcycle taxis are allowed again.
