To provide customers with up-to-date information, cell phone operator Telkomsel, in cooperation with the National Police, is live streaming traffic conditions during the Idul Fitri exodus. 

The live streaming, from May 27 to June 26, shows real time conditions in crowded areas from 50 CCTV cameras owned by the National Police’s traffic department, including important seaports like those in Merak, Banten; in Bakauheni, Lampung; and in Ketapang, Banyuwangi, East Java.

The livestream will be shown through the Mudik Hapi 2019 channel in its MAXstream app. Educational videos will also be offered, as well as 24-hour access to the national traffic management center’s call center.

“With this special exodus channel in MAXstream, we hope customers can enjoy more comfortable trips as they are supplied with adequate information,” said Telkomsel director Sukardi Silalahi as quoted by tribunnews.com on Wednesday.

He said customers could access the Mudik Hepi 2019 channel by purchasing a MAXstream package. 

Traffic department head Insp. Gen. Refdi Andri welcomed the cooperation with Telkomsel, saying that through the cooperation, people could get the latest information on the conditions of the areas they might pass during their trip.

“Let us disseminate information to the people,” he added. (bbn)
