To meet its target of 1 million daily passengers by the end of the year, city-owned bus operator Transjakarta has commenced the operation of a new route from Palmerah Station in West Jakarta to the Senayan traffic circle in South Jakarta.
Transjakarta president director Budi Kaliwono said the company’s 128th route, which commenced operation on April 23, was connected with Transjakarta corridors I, IV, VI, IX and XIII.
“The increase in Transjakarta’s connectivity will improve the number of public transportation users,” Budi said in a statement on Thursday, adding that the new route was targeting commuter line passengers at Palmerah Station.
Buses serving the new route will stop at Palmerah Station, the Youth and Sports Ministry, TVRI, Taman Ria, Senayan, Jakarta Convention Center, Gelora Bung Karno and the Senayan traffic circle bus stops.
The bus operator records roughly 524,000 passengers served by 13,000 buses every day. (vny)
