Bemo or rickshaw with motor machine is vehicles from Japan that called Daihatsu Midget. Bemo is a small three-wheeled vehicle. Daihatsu Midget is the first production vehicle that entered the automotive market in Indonesia. In Japan, Daihatsu Midget only used for goods transportation. But in Indonesia, Bemo used as human transportation. Bemo was adopted in Indonesia in early 1962, first in Jakarta in connection with Ganefo.
Later, Bemo presence was intended to replace rickshaws, because these vehicles are very practical and able to reach the narrow streets, and can run much faster than rickshaws. However, this plan did not succeed because of the presence of Bemo is not supported by a mature plan.
