After signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Kopaja bus operator, the Jakarta city administration is now working for the improvement of their services. They are together trying to improve the quality and safety of the services.

'€œPublic transportation in Jakarta should be safer and more comfortable. Therefore, we should continue to improve public transportation services,'€ said Jakarta City Transportation Agency head Andri Yansyah on Friday.

PT Transportasi Jakarta (Transjakarta), the Jakarta City Transportation Agency and Kopaja bus operator on Wednesday signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to operate buses serving the Manggarai-Blok M route, known in South Jakarta as the S66 route.

Currently, Kopaja operates 80 buses on the S66 route.

'€œWe have made another step in an effort to improve the service of Kopaja buses after the MoU signing,'€ said Andri

Under the agreement, the city administration will replace the medium-sized buses with large buses as big as those operated along Transjakarta lanes, according to Andri.

'€œThe number of buses will be decreased to 40 if the buses are replaced with the big ones. All the big buses will be operated along Transjakarta sub-routes,'€ Andri explained.

The MoU also ruled that the Kopaja bus operators had to agree with the new payment system of rupiah-per-kilometer. (nov/bbn)
