    TEMPO.CO, JakartaJakarta Governor Anies Baswedan said city-run bus operator PT Transjakarta would provide shuttle buses connecting Park and Ride site to MRT Lebak Bulus Station. Anies said the bus would operate regularly.

    “We will provide regular buses there, so MRT users can park their vehicles and board MRT,” said Anies at Kedaung Kaliangke 03 state elementary school (SDN), Cengkareng, West Jakarta, on Friday, April 5.
