City-owned bus operator PT Transportasi Jakarta (Transjakarta) is set to operate its newly built corridor 13 route on Independence Day on Aug. 17.
The corridor, which serves a route connecting Jl. Tendean to Jl. Ciledug Raya in South Jakarta, is expected to receive a building worthiness certificate (SLF), which would allow the firm to operate the corridor, within the next three weeks, Transjakarta president director Budi Kaliwono said.
"The governor gave instructions to operate it after we acquire the SLF," Budi said on Sunday during a field survey of the corridor.
The corridor was initially launched on Jakarta's 490th anniversary on June 22, but operations were halted as required documents, such as the SLF from the Public Works and Public Housing Ministry, had not yet been obtained, while the light installation on the elevated busway lane did not meet safety standards.
Once launched, corridor 13 will accommodate up to 40,000 passengers per day, Budi said.
