Mirolet Drivers on Strike

By on 8:15 PM

Starting from February 29th, 2016, all mikrolet drivers have been on strike causing many passengers to be confused how to go to the center of the city. One apparent reason is that the local government of Bandar Lampung has blocked the road that is usually passed through by mikrolet and the route has been diverted to a farther route passing Simpur mall. The problem is not the distance but more on passenger-related location. Pasar Tengah, where all mikrolets pass through is the location where there are a lot of passengers, while the new route (passing by Simpur mall) has fewer passengers.

Up to March 02, 2016, it is reported that the strike is still underway. Many people do not see the reason behind this route diversion.
