From the streets of Jakarta, Kompas.com reports that Jakarta’s Transportation Agency ensures that it will eliminate 124 bus routes in the city’s public transport rerouting. Of the 124 routes, 41 are in-city routes, while the rest are intercity busses. The elimination is done as most of the routes have already been covered by the Transjakarta bus and are deemed redundant for Jakarta’s public transportation. After the full-sized busses, the reorganization of medium sized busses (metromini & kopaja) and micro-busses (angkot) will also follow. We can’t wait until Jakarta is angkot free!
