Local transportation, government policy, horizontal conflict



This research is motivated by the response of Ternate Municipal Government to the existence of motorcycle taxi (Ojek) as a two-wheeled vehicle used as a public transportation tool that is contradictory to Law No. 22 of 2009 on Traffic and Road Transport in Ternate City. The purpose of this study is to determine the form of government response about the existence of Ojek as a means of public transportation in the Ternate city. To analyze the problems in this research, the theory used is the theory of policy formulation and checks and balances related to the regulation of Ojek as public transportation that is contrary to Law no. 22 of 2009 on Road Traffic and Transportation. This research used qualitative method with case study about Ojek existence between regulation or not regulated. Result of research shows that historically existence of Ojek in Ternate City is closely related to horizal conflict condition that happened in North Maluku in September 1999 with 25 of Ojek. The existence of Ojek at that time has a reason because of the scarcity of public transportation and as a buffer of life to refugees Ternate city. Because the number is increasing so that it is used the authority of attribution then the Ojek is regulated by Mayor, Samsir Andili by Decree No. 03 of 2001 and then Decree No. 07 of 2003. After Mayor Burhan Abdurahman, until this second period Ojek no longer have operational license because it is considered contrary to regulations above. Ojek as illegal public transport can be problematic in the future, especially the seizure of resources that will give rise to conflict, let alone mockers have no identity that is very vulnerable to traffic order and even crime. The solution offered with two approaches is orderliness approach and empowerment aproach.
