  • TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan is included in the list of 21Heroes2021 published by the Transformative Urban Mobility Initiative (TUMI). TUMI publication states that 21Heroes2021 honors those who, despite historic challenges, achieved transport success in 2020 and laid the groundwork for even more successful and sustainable mobility initiatives in 2021. 

    "The individuals highlighted in this publication are a small, yet powerful, selection of many who are actively contributing to make mobility future-oriented, safe, inclusive, and sustainable," as stated in the publication.

    TUMI views Anies had led to steady transit improvements, including respective bus services and plans for a large cycling network in Jakarta - 63km of which are already in place - amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

    The city worked toward a shared goal of creating fair, affordable and inclusive transportation for all. Before the pandemic, Anies took a bird’s eye view of Jakarta’s transport system in order to create a transformative and integrated system of different transportation modes.  

    "Amid the city smog, he (Anies Baswedan) saw an opportunity for launching an electric bus operational plan and the renovation of city-owned public transportation stations directly linked to commuter line railway stations," wrote TUMI. Jakarta’s achievements have also been acknowledged with the ITDP-led STA award 2020.
