Transjakarta Forms Safety Division as it Aims to Reduce Accidents

9 November 2022 11:07 WIB

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - City-owned public transport firm Transportasi Jakarta or Transjakarta on Tuesday announced that it has newly formed a safety division that intends to watch over its fleets’ safety aspect during daily trips. The company’s director of operations and safety Yoga Adiwinarto said the company is attempting to mitigate possible accidents once the fleet grows in number and serves more bus routes. 

"We have only formed the Safety Division in 2022. The risk of Transjakarta 220 routes running is only 39 Bus Rapid Transits, the rest are non-BRT and micro trans," said Yoga in Jakarta, Tuesday, November 8.

According to Yoga, the risk increases as the number of fleets and routes increases. "The theory is that the more it travels, the greater the risk. That's why we continue to advocate for accident rates," he added.

Yoga said PT Transjakarta uses the standards from the Ministry of Transportation in measuring its fleet’s accident rate.

He also emphasized the risk of accidents that can come from violations committed by motorcyclists and cars that most of the time cross paths with Transjakarta bus lanes.

"So if it is said that Transjakarta does not have awareness, we are currently improving it, we have started mapping, this is what the Transjakarta program does to maintain safety. And not only the operator, but we also embrace how it’s managed and that safety awareness must be a priority," said Yoga
