Jak Lingko, a public transportation system on which passengers may travel on Transjakarta buses and angkot (public minivans) for one flat fare, will accept only electronic card payments starting December. 

Banners announcing the new policy have been installed in several locations. 

City-owned PT Transjakarta service and development director Achmad Izzul Waro confirmed the upcoming policy, saying it was aimed at improving services and accountability. 

“All transactions will be cashless to ensure accountability,” he said as quoted by kompas.com. “Angkot is part of the integration and is not a competitor of Transjakarta.”

Earlier, all 11 angkot operators agreed to integrate their services with Transjakarta, meaning that passengers need to pay only once with an electronic card to enjoy the service. 

In the scheme, angkot drivers are paid based on the distance they cover, regardless of the number of passengers they carry. 

The city administration has sought to expand the integration with other modes of transportation, including other minibuses, the MRT and the light rapid transit (LRT), which will begin commercial operation next year.

Jak Lingko is the new name of the One Card One Trip (OK Otrip) transportation system.  (fac)
