Bracing for the upcoming festive season, city-owned bus operator PT Transjakarta is planning to operate more buses to take residents and tourists around the capital to visit attractions during the Christmas and New Year’s Eve holidays.

Transjakarta president director Agung Wicaksono said the company usually decreased the number of buses operating during holidays, but they had to accommodate people who wanted to visit tourist attractions across the capital. 

“The demand for double-decker buses usually reaches a peak during the holiday season,” Agung said as quoted by Antara news agency. 

Agung said more buses would be deployed to take passengers to Taman Mini Indonesia Indah cultural park in East Jakarta, Ragunan Zoo in South Jakarta and Ancol Dreamland Park in North Jakarta.

PT Transjakarta currently operates buses called Jakarta Explorers. The bus service, which was free of charge, was launched in 2014 and has since expanded to seven routes, which pass various tourist attractions in the city.

Based on the destinations passed, the routes are divided into themes, such as the History of Jakarta, Jakarta Modern, Art and Cuisine, Jakarta Skyscrapers and Jakarta Shopping. (gis)
