Australia, Transjakarta Working to Improve Public Transport Amid Pandemic

22 June 2022 09:52 WIB

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The Australian Embassy in Jakarta announced on Tuesday that it is working with PT Transportasi Jakarta or Transjakarta to deliver safe and high-quality public transport in Jakarta.

Minister-counsellor of economic, investment and infrastructure branch Tim Stapleton at the Australian Embassy Jakarta said, “Australia is pleased to be working with TransJakarta to transform services following the pandemic, with a goal of increased ridership”.

He added that the crisis preparedness and communications plans launched today were developed in close partnership with TransJakarta. 

“The plans provide a strong basis for TransJakarta’s response to future crises and are a valuable toolkit in TransJakarta’s efforts to deliver safe and better services,” he added.

According to the embassy statement, TransJakarta, like many transport providers globally, experienced a sharp decline in ridership during the COVID-19 pandemic, which has led to TransJakarta and the Australian Government-funded Indonesia-Australia Partnership for Infrastructure (KIAT) jointly developing crisis management, preparedness, and communications plans to support a more resilient public transport service. 

The plans include recommendations on how to manage future disruptions. Recommendations from these reports will help Transjakarta’s “Win-Back” campaign to increase ridership by supporting safe, urban public transport.

The Australian Embassy, represented by Minister-Counsellor Tim Stapleton, formally handed the documents to Transjakarta at a ceremony in Jakarta’s newest transit interchange which has been open since December 2021. Australia will continue to partner with TransJakarta, including on two initiatives aimed at integrating transport hubs with residential areas in Jakarta.
