TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The number of PT Transportasi Jakarta (TransJakarta) passengers breaks the new record. On Thursday, March 1, it has served 507,909 passengers.
President Director of PT Transjakarta Budi Kaliwono said the achievement was contributed by the number of operational buses, route extension, and the Jakarta Administration's OK-Otrip program.
According to Budi, it motivates his institution to improve the service through the new routes opening, the modes of transportation integration, and connectivity. Currently, Transjakarta has 13 corridors, 113 routes, and five OK Otrip routes. The number of buses that operate each day ranged around 1,300 units. Special for corridor 13, the number reaches 15,000 people every day.
In the period from January to February, Transjakarta has served 26 million passengers. Transjakarta was transporting 144.86 million passengers by 2017, up to 17.09 percent from 123.71 million in 2016. Budi estimates the number will continue to increase.
