PT Transjakarta bus operator and state-owned airport operator Angkasa Pura II (AP II) will provide passengers with free takjil (light snacks) to break the fast during Ramadhan, which starts on Thursday.

Transjakarta spokesman Wibowo said the company had prepared 500,000 bottles of sweet tea that would be distributed to Transjakarta stations across the city during Ramadhan.

“Free drinks will be distributed on weekdays, starting at 5:30 p.m. until 6.30 p.m.” Wibowo said on Thursday.

Besides preparing free drinks, Transjakarta will hold “Music on Shelter” events to entertain passengers at Karet bus station at 4.30 p.m. on Thursday.

Pop-singer Fatin has been invited to sing in the event.

Meanwhile, passengers at Soekarno-Hatta Airport's terminals 1, 2 and 3 can expect to receive free takjil, with AP II set to distribute 5,075 free packages of snacks and dates during the entire month of Ramadhan.

The operator will also hold several events, such as a bazaar garage sale, Ramadhan live music and free mudik (annual homebound exodus).

The airport has also been decorated with Ramadhan decorations.

“The program has become our tradition to welcome and honor Ramadhan and Idul Fitri. We hope passengers and residents living nearby the airport can feel the Ramadhan spirit at the airport,” Erwin Revianto, senior branch manager of communications and legal at Soekarno-Hatta Airport, said in a statement on Wednesday.
