TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - City-owned transportation company PT Transportasi Jakarta (Transjakarta) said that the budget for the procurement of electric buses is higher than the fossil-fueled buses. The company's President Director Welfizon Yuza said his office must spend 30 percent more to purchase electric bus units.

"Electric bus investment is still quite high. Currently, we pay about 30 percent higher for the electric bus [procurement] than the fossil-fueled [bus procurement]," he said in a meeting at Commission B of Jakarta DPRD on Wednesday, June 7.

The electric bus procurement fund, Welfizon said, burdens Transjakarta and the private operators' finances. It, therefore, asked for additional incentives from Jakarta Provincial Government, so the company could maximize the electric bus utilization in Jakarta. 

"We're trying to find alternatives, as [we believe that] all of the institutions must provide support regarding these incentives, such as in the value-added tax (PPn) and everything that is being discussed," the Transjakarta director explained.

Welfizon added that 30 electric buses are already operating in the capital city and that the number will increase to 70 units by the end of this year.
