Indonesia Requires Registration of Ride-Hailing Companies

The government of Indonesia recently announced that ride-hailing companies in that country could not be registered as technology companies, but must be registered as transportation companies.  This transition would give more protection to the companies’ drivers.  Currently, the regulation applies only to cars, but motorcycle-taxi drivers would like the rules to be expanded for their protection as well.  The biggest companies affected by the change are Go-Jek and Grab, the latter of which recently acquired the southeast Asian business of Uber.
