Simprug Transjakarta bus shelter in Kebayoran Lama, South Jakarta, which serves Corridor 8 connecting Lebak Bulus in South Jakarta and Harmoni in Central Jakarta, suspended its operation after it was hit by a truck on Thursday morning.

“It was hit by a truck at around 4 a.m.,“ Transjakarta spokesman Wibowo said on Thursday as reported by kompas.com.

He said the collision damaged six glass windowpanes, the automated doors, 17 steel sheets, the ceiling and the shelter's separators.

“Three handrails were also dislodged and one was damaged [because of the crash],” Wibowo said.

Wibowo said he did not know when the Simprug bus shelter would resume operation as the Transjakarta’s maintenance team was still assessing the damage. (ami)
