Abstract

The online taxi bike gives some convenience to customers since its first launch. The demand for using online taxi bike from the public is quite high. Unfortunately, the high demand is not accompanied by the adaptation of urban space. Streets and circulation nodes begin to be filled with online taxi bikes which are hanging or waiting for passengers. This activity causes congestion and misuse of urban infrastructure. This development must be maintained by the government so that the presence of online taxi bike can run optimally without harming any parties. This study will examine how significant the impact of the presence of online taxi bike in urban areas is related to the use of space and urban infrastructure. This study uses qualitative method and is done by observing several strategic points in the city which were synthesized through the map. The research is complemented by literature studies and enriches the latest information through the city news. The results prove that the existence of online taxi bike can reach the blank spot of the city and complete the public access to the destination. Nevertheless, its existence can lead to conflict, especially with other public transportation services. On the passenger's point of view, the presence of online taxi bike makes the trip easier. To reduce potential conflict, the meeting between online taxi bike community and conventional taxi bike can be arranged by the government.
