Uber has launched a motorbike taxi service in Jakarta, to offer commuters an alternative for getting around the usually congested Indonesian capital.
The app-based car-hire service joins rivals Grab and GoJek, who already have established similar services.
Thousands of taxi drivers protested recently in the Indonesian capital against transport apps.
The drivers said ride-hailing apps such as Uber have made it impossible for them to earn a living in the city.
Uber started operating in Jakarta in the later part of 2014. The car-hire service also operates in other Indonesian cities – Bandung, Surabaya and the popular tourist destination Bali.
It is calling its latest offering “uberMOTOR”, which it claims will allow anyone in Jakarta to “push a button and get a motorbike ride in minutes”.
The company says its pricing is the “most affordable” in town, with a base fare starting at 1,000 Indonesian rupiah ($0.08; £0.06).
