The Jakarta administration has decided to provide free Transjakarta bus rides on weekends during the 2018 Asian Para Games, which will be held from Oct. 6 to Oct. 13.

"Every Saturday and Sunday, any Jakartan who wants to go to the sports venues can use the Transjakarta buses free of charge,” Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan said on Sunday as quoted by kompas.com.

Those with disabilities can use Transjakarta every day for free during the sporting event.

He expressed hope that the free bus service will encourage people to watch the Asian Para Games.

During the 2018 Asian Games that ran from Aug. 18 to Sept. 2, the city administration provided free bus services for the public during a national holiday and on weekends. Volunteers and journalists covering the quadrennial sporting event were allowed to use the buses for free throughout the event by showing their accreditation to Transjakarta staff.

The 3rd Asian Para Games will feature 18 sport divisions and involves athletes from 43 countries. (stu)
