Express is the biggest competitor of the Blue Bird Group with regard to taxi operations in Indonesia. Currently Blue Bird is still market leader but Express is showing signs of aggressive expansion. On 2 November 2012 Express debuted on the Indonesia Stock Exchange (making it Indonesia's first publicly traded cab service) by selling 49 percent of its equity, which raised IDR 588.7 billion (about US $60 million). Express will use these proceeds to increase and rejuvenate its fleet, and to acquire an entire stake in Jakarta-based taxi operator Ekspres Mulia Kencana. This move will add 2,000 licensed taxi units to the company.
Express provides the following services:
• Regular Taxi Services
• Premium Taxi Services
• Value Added Transportation Business (VATB)
However, almost 90 percent of the company's income comes from the regular taxi services. The company's regular taxis can be found in the Greater Jakarta area, Semarang, Surabaya and Medan. At the end of 2012, Express had 108 premium taxis that are all used in the Greater Jakarta area. Its VATB business segment consists of limousine services (Bandung, Bali and Lombok) and charter bus services.

The Indonesian Taxi Market
Despite chaotic conditions (traffic congestions) on the roads of some big Indonesian cities (mainly on Java, Indonesia's most populous island) - due to a lack of investments in the country's infrastructure - Indonesia's taxi market offers growth opportunities for a number of reasons:
• Indonesia contains a large population that has become increasingly urbanized
• Macroeconomic growth; Indonesia's middle class is expanding and GDP per capita rises accordingly
• A lack of investments in public transportation makes taxis an attractive alternative
The points above imply that the potential clientele for taxis is growing not only because the - already large - population of Indonesia is expanding but also because cities, where taxis operate, are expanding due to the continuing process of urbanization. These cities lack a well organized public transportation system. Public transportation in Indonesia is cheap but usually uncomfortable. Given that the country is characterized by an expanding middle class, more and more people can afford to use taxi services.
