City-owned bus operator PT Transjakarta plans to operate a new route from Pasar Minggu in South Jakarta to Tanah Abang in Central Jakarta starting on Monday, PT Transjakarta president director Budi Kaliwono said.

Budi explained that the 30-kilometer route would connect Transjakarta's Corridor I (Blok M to Kota), Corridor VI (Dukuh Atas to Ragunan) and Corridor IX (Pluit to Pinang Ranti).

Transjakarta would deploy as many as 20 non-articulated buses to serve passengers on the new route.

“It is expected that the new route can serve about 5,000 passengers every day,” Budi said on Friday as quoted by wartakotalive.com. (vny/dmr)
