Jakarta will implement a one-fare public transportation system called OK Otrip next year in an attempt to encourage more people to use public transportation.

Under the system, which is expected to be on a limited trial next year, passengers can travel across the capital using different modes of transportation for three hours by paying only Rp 5,000 (36 US cents), said Andri Yansyah, Jakarta’s transportation agency head.

“For instance, a passenger leaves the first point at 9 a.m. and travels around until 12 p.m. No matter how many modes of transportation are taken, [the passenger’s] total fare is only Rp 5,000,” said Andri recently, adding that there were no specific conditions.

Responding to the plan, Organization of Land Transportation Owners chairman Shafruhan Sinungan said the organization supported the plan and was ready for the trial next year.

“We basically support the move but we call on the governor to ease the bidding requirements so that middle-sized enterprises can meet the eligibility,” he added.

Shafruhan further said the administration had told Organda about the trial, which would be implemented to certain routes in five municipalities.

During the trial, some angkot (public minivan) routes will be changed so that they only transport passengers to and from neighborhoods and the nearest Transjakarta shelters.
