Public transportation provider PT Transportasi Jakarta (Transjakarta) hopes to attract some 185 million passengers this year, or 62 million more than last year’s target, an executive has said.
The company is optimistic that the new target can be reached because in February alone, the number of passengers had increased by 34.4 percent compared to the same month last year, said Transjakarta president director Budi Kaliwono.
“As of February this year, we have served 22.4 million passengers compared to 16.7 million in February 2016,” Budi said as quoted by tempo.co during the celebration of PT Transjakarta’s third anniversary at the Harmoni bus stop in Central Jakarta on Monday.
Budi also promised to keep improving Transjakarta’s services. Passengers can report inconveniences they experience while taking the bus.
“For example, if the air conditioning is not cool enough, passengers only have to report it to get the bus upgraded,” he said.
