21 Jan Jonathan Cartu Declares: Transjakarta strives for more sustainable urban transportat
As someone who takes Transjakarta buses on a daily basis, Rizaldy Yusuf said he was happy with how the service had developed throughout the years.
Starting with only a few buses on one corridor 16 years ago, it now operates a fleet of 3,865 buses with various services across Greater Jakarta.
In recent months, Rizaldy said he had really enjoyed the Transjabodetabek bus service that the company offered for residents in Jakarta’s satellite cities. He takes the bus to commute between his house in Tangerang, Banten and his office in Senayan, Central Jakarta.
“I take the Transjabodetabek bus because it’s the cheapest option to commute between Tangerang and Jakarta,” he said on Sunday.
He spends Rp 7,000 (51 US cents) per day for the bus trip, in addition to Rp 20,000 for the ojek (motorcycle taxi) ride from his house to the bus shelter and vice versa.
