Govt Ensures Safety, Convenience During Eid Homecoming This Year

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The government guarantees that the momentum of Eid al-Fitr 1438 or 2017 Eid homecoming will be safe and convenient to homecoming travelers.

Transportation Ministry’s Land Transportation general director Pudji Hartanto in Jakarta on Friday, June 2, said that they have coordinated with other ministries/institutions to prepare a better homecoming-exodus flow this year.

"The most important thing is that the homecoming travelers are safe and comfortable to get to their destinations. That is why we have anticipated everything related to infrastructure, transportation modes, transportation operators and drivers," he said.

He explained that several measures have been taken to ensure safety and convenience. The first effort is inspecting all modes of transportation ranging from roadworthiness, seaworthiness, and airworthiness.

In addition, transportation operators and drivers are given coaching to avoid accidents. He further said that free homecoming transport facilities are provided by using trains, trucks to load motorbikes, buses, and ships. Another free homecoming facility is using roll on-roll off (RORO) ships from Jakarta, Surabaya, and Semarang, he added.
