On a somewhat related note to TransJakarta, today, Saturday February 10 2007, marks the official beginning of operations for Santiago de Chile's Transantiago transportation system. Overnight, hundreds of old yellow buses owned by dozens of companies were completely removed from the streets and replaced by new buses, new routes, and a modern integrated transport system which will synchronize the subway, the buses, and suburban trains.

today is a truly revolutionary day for Santiago. Here's an article in English.


Chilean capital braced for big transport shake-up
08 Feb 2007 17:03:31 GMT

By Carolina Aliaga

SANTIAGO, Feb 8 (Reuters) - The Chilean capital Santiago is gearing up for the biggest ever shake-up of its transport system this weekend, and while the government is urging calm, many commuters are predicting delays, chaos and frayed tempers.

"Transantiago," a much-delayed project designed to streamline mass transit and rid streets of fume-belching old buses that add to the city's notorious pollution problem, comes into being on Saturday.

"On that day I'm going to leave home an hour earlier than usual," said Sonia Lopez, a 45-year-old secretary who has taken the same bus to work for the past 10 years but now will have to change her plans since her old bus route has been scrapped.

"I just hope people don't faint in all the confusion, or on the metro, which is going to be packed."

Changes include redrawn bus routes to make them more efficient and compatible with Santiago's modern light-rail and subway system, known as the metro, and extension of the metro's no-cash payment system to bus routes. In addition, efforts to replace older buses will continue.

Few people question the need for an overhaul of Santiago's transport system, which at times appears totally unregulated.

Hundreds of battered yellow buses, operated by scores of small private companies, compete for customers along the city's main arteries.

But while the need for change is evident, many object to the way in which Transantiago is being implemented.

For weeks, Chile's newspapers have been packed with predictions of doom, photographs of half-built bus stops and extensive reports on the city's general state of unreadiness for such a large project.

Some bus drivers have threatened to strike over the changes and passengers have predicted there could be protests or even riots if the system collapses.

Starting Saturday, staff from the government's National Emergency Office, usually on hand to deal with disasters like earthquakes or floods, will be dispatched to the city's streets to help bewildered commuters.

NO MORE CASH

Under the new system, passengers will no longer be able to use cash to pay for bus rides but must use a swipe card loaded with credit. The card also will be valid on the metro rail system.

But there have been serious problems installing machines capable of reading the cards on the new buses. Many Santiaguinos say they fear the system will not work.

The integrated transport system also is expected to put more pressure on the metro, as commuters switch from using buses to using a combination of bus and train.

In recent months, the metro has been plastered with posters telling people the number of passengers will double once the new system is in place, to about 2.4 million people. The metro's operators have spent $150 million on 11 new trains to absorb the extra traffic along its five lines.

City authorities have sent out maps and guides to Santiago's 6 million inhabitants to inform them how the system will work and what their best routes to work will be.

"There's a lot of confusion. I don't understand how it works or how I'm going to get to work that day," said Roberto Canas, a 28-year-old audiovisual communicator.

Despite the uncertainty, Transantiago has its supporters, who see it as progress in a country that likes to hold itself up as an example of modernity to the rest of Latin America.

"I have faith in Transantiago," said Daniela Easton, a 24-year-old university student. "It's going to be difficult at first but it's for the best. At last the transport system is going to change."


These are the horrible old yellow buses, as of today, completely extinct in Santiago.

Yeah... I'm looking forward to the day we get rid of those decrepit and ugly Metromini, Kopaja PPD and Mayasari Bakti FOREVER!! Those buses belong in landfills not city streets!

Japan to finance MRT system for Jakarta

JAKARTA, Feb 15, 2007 (AFP) - Japan will finance construction of Indonesia's first mass rapid transit system which is expected to be relieving congestion in the traffic-clogged capital by September 2014, officials said Thursday.

The 14.5 kilometre (nine-mile) rail system will run north-south through Jakarta and combine above ground and underground stations at a cost of 110 billion yen (917 million dollars).

Unlike many other major cities, Jakarta lacks an underground or light railway or tram system. The new transit system is aimed at relieving chronic traffic congestion in the sprawling city but is currently just at the planning stage.

"The financing will be government-to-government. Japan will finance 30 percent of the total project, Indonesia will match the amount and the remaining 40 percent will be up for international tender," advisory committee member Bambang Susantono told AFP.

Susantono said the system would have to integrate with the city's existing transport and a long-delayed monorail which currently consists of lots of concrete pillars in the middle of a highway.

"Jakarta will have a busway system, monorail and a revitalised Jabotabek (local train network), the MRT needs to be integrated with the other existing transport systems," said Susanto, who is also chairman of the Indonesian Transport Society thinktank.

The recent floods also highlighted another problem to be taken into consideration.

"All the concerns about Jakarta's vulnerability towards floods and other concerns need to be addressed," he said.

"And lastly the project needs to be sustainable, both in its operation and in its financing," he said adding that the public needed to be consulted at all stages of the project.

Construction of the proposed system, which will mostly run above ground but include four underground stations, is due to start in 2008.

In 2004, Jakarta launched its first network of dedicated bus lanes which has only recently connected most parts of the city.

The stalled 27-kilometre monorail has been hampered by a lack of money and wrangling over what technology to use.

This is great news about the MRT/subway. Is there any update on the status of the Jakarta monorail?

=== Anybody refers to this route map of Transjakarta line, be careful guys. Some shelter in a real world out there were using different name . Especially, for Kuningan - Ragunan corridore. The Transjakarta line is much more complicated than the map below ..
