Abstract

Public transportation is a means of transportation that is needed in several developing countries. One of the means of ground transportation is a taxi. Transportation plays an important role in meeting diverse human needs, such as the need for education, health, economy and others. Along with technological advances and the important role of transportation in everyday life, online-based transportation has been created, both online motorcycle taxis and online taxis. This study aims to see the extent of the impact of the implementation of the PSBB policy on the income of taxi drivers during the Covid-19 pandemic. This study used a qualitative method approach and involved 8 direct informants, namely online taxi drivers. The results of this study as a whole show that the existence of the PSBB policy that is enforced in DKI Jakarta in particular has a large negative impact. This policy causes the income of taxi drivers to decrease even up to 80% and it makes it very difficult to continue their daily life. The government has 5 programs to help the community including (1) Family Hope Program (PKH) for 10 Million Beneficiary Families (KPM), (2) Basic Food Card Program for 20 million recipients, (3) Pre-Work Card Program for 5.6 million participants with a total budget of IDR 20 trillion, (4) The government provides discounted rates for 450 VA customers and 900 VA subsidies, (5) Stimulus of People's Business Credit (KUR) which aims to ease the burden on SME.
