I've tried it when in Jakarta summer 2004, it's good and the city should build more lines.... faster.

Challenges still faced by BRT system in Jakarta as summarized from news in Kompas today about the comparison study in Bogota by the team of Indonesian/Jakarta Land Transport invited by New York based Institute for Transportation and Development Policy (ITDP) and Indonesian Transport Society:

1. Lack of feeder system
2. Unlcear phases of development
3. No lanes dedicated to bicycle
4. lack of pedestrian

On the same time Jakarta BRT adviced to start operating circulated or bi-circulated buses to add capacity and minimize the gas emision.

Busway roadwork means sacrifices

Adding a new layer to Jakarta's haphazard and almost completely unplanned transportation network is no easy task.

With three corridors already running, the busway system, regarded by many as being the future backbone of the city's public transportation, is slowly but surely expanding.

Jakarta Busway developers say they expect to complete four new corridors by early next year.

The corridors will link the eastern part of Jakarta with the north and south, from Kampung Rambutan to Kampung Melayu, Kampung Melayu to Ancol, Pulogadung to Dukuk Atas and Ragunan to Kuningan.

Construction of the infrastructure alone will cost the city around Rp 293.5 billion, city transportation agency head Nurachman has said.

And that's just the financial cost. Roadworks have taken over more than one lane on all affected routes, causing serious traffic congestion on several already busy streets.

But hopefully in the end the sacrifice will be worth it, with Jakarta taking its first steps on the road to a better, more civilized public transportation service.

well, it looks as if Lines 6-8 should open as scheduled, 15 January 2007. Line 5, I'm not too sure because of that problem...
apparently the 15 th of January is considered as a good day --or perhaps even a sacred date-- for Jakarta BRT. Line 1 opened on Jan 15, 2004. Line 2 and 3 started operating on Jan 15, 2006. :)

Minimalist bus shelters to ward off 'invaders'
Anissa S. Febrina, The Jakarta Post, Jakarta

With more busway corridors under construction, Jakartans can expect to see more streetside bus shelters being revamped in a trendy, minimalist style that some people are calling "dysfunctional".

"It is in line with the busway project. As more of the (passenger) load is being transferred to TransJakarta shelters, we are making them more minimalist," city transportation agency head Nurachman said Friday.

Nurachman refused to reveal the budget for the process because he said the city administration planned to "do it gradually".

The agency's move to make the shelters more minimalist was also aimed at preventing vendors from occupying them.

"We do not want people to invade the shelters," Nurachman said.

The most recent example is a bus shelter in Mampang, which has been remodeled in a sparse aluminum style similar to those found along the Sudirman-Thamrin busway line, while several older shelters await work.

The new shelters, with seats wide enough for a maximum of three people, have recently been criticized by a group of young artists as "dysfunctional" for not providing enough seating for people waiting for a ride.

In the Mampang shelter, responding to complaints from awaiting passengers over the lack of seating, a nearby cigarette stall vendor provided his wooden benches as additional perches.

"It seems that they (the benches) are more useful there instead of in front of my stall," said 27-year old Muharom, the vendor.

Despite the agency's claims that the busway service's popularity is leading to less congestion on conventional bus routes, crowds of standing passengers can still be seen along Sudirman-Thamrin during peak hours.

"In general, bus stops serve as temporary shelters for awaiting passengers. A shelter for rapid transit buses (RTB) like the TransJakarta services are different from those for ordinary buses," Indonesian Transportation Society (MTI) chairman Bambang Susantono said.

"It is mainly because RTBs are a fast boarding and alighting form of transportation that do not require passengers to wait for too long."

"For instance, bus stops in Bogota (Colombia) have three exits because they serve articulated buses. They have no seats because the buses operate within two-minute intervals."

"However, for common public buses, shelters should have been provided with seats because they operate with longer intervals of around 15 minutes."

Waiting for that long, people tend to want to sit down. The design must also adapt to local climate and in our case must take rainy days into account, he said.

Aside from lack of seats, the new modern shelters are also designed with angled roofs that don't properly shade people from the rain.

I'm not surprise though. Read again: The new shelters, with seats wide enough for a maximum of three people, have recently been criticized by a group of young artists as "dysfunctional" for not providing enough seating for people waiting for a ride.

so, they're young... and green. Therefore have no experience and they're narrow-minded. At least they must use their brain before opening their mouth.

I'll post pictures of bus stops here in Geneve which is not more than a simple sign, we're getting wet when it rains and getting hot under the sun.

Hey all,
I read at Harmoni Central Busway will be opened today by Sutiyoso. Emang udah kelar ya? Koq cepet bgt sih.
wah kayaknya ini udah telat 5 bulanan deh. soalnya menurut rencana awal mustinya dibuka maret lalu.
The government has to pay 15X to subsudize the passanger this year compared to last year due to opening new lines (line 2 and 3) and the flat fare which is now implemented. With this flat fare means, a passanger can change as many as line he/she wants by only paying 1 time. This is the time to enhance this system that is the fare must depend on the distance.... Let's see if they'll do that.

Tambah Koridor
Subsidi Tiket Busway Membengkak 15 Kali

[JAKARTA] Penambahan dua koridor baru bus jalur khusus (busway), ternyata membuat subsidi tiket yang ditanggung Pemerintah Provinsi (Pemprov) DKI Jakarta membengkak.

Untuk pengoperasian busway Koridor I, Blok M-Kota, Koridor II, Pulogadung-Harmoni, dan Koridor III, Harmoni-Kalideres, tiap penumpang busway disubsidi Rp 2.300. Angka tersebut, meningkat 15 kali lipat dari subsidi Rp 150 per penumpang pada tahun lalu.

Hal itu terungkap dalam rapat kerja Komisi D (Bidang Pembangunan) DPRD DKI Jakarta dengan Dinas Perhubungan (Dishub) DKI, dan Badan Layanan Umum (BLU) Transajakarta Busway, di Gedung DPRD DKI Jakarta, Rabu (27/9).

"Selama ini, Gubernur dan dewan dibohongi. Katanya, subsidi yang dibayarkan hanya Rp 150, tetapi dari penjelasan Transjakarta dan Dishub, setelah dihitung ternyata subsidi mencapai Rp 2.300," kata Ketua Komisi D DPRD DKI, Sayogo Hendrosubroto, dalam rapat tersebut.

Dia mengaku kaget dengan tingginya subsidi yang dibayarkan oleh Pemprov DKI kepada dua operator busway, yakni Transjakarta dan Transbatavia. Pasalnya, subsidi yang diberikan, tidak sebanding dengan penerimaan dari penjualan tiket.

Sayogo menjelaskan, subsidi tiket Rp 2.300 per penumpang, dihitung dari biaya operasional dikurangi penerimaan tiket busway pada 2006. Adapun jumlah penumpang busway sepanjang 2006 diperkirakan mencapai 40 juta orang.

Tahun ini, Pemprov DKI menganggarkan biaya operasional busway Rp 230 miliar. Jika dibagi dengan asumsi jumlah penumpang 40 juta orang sepanjang 2006, biaya operasional tiap penumpang adalah Rp 5.500.

Sedangkan perkiraan penerimaan tiket busway pada 2006 sebesar Rp 128 miliar, jika dibagi asumsi jumlah penumpang 40 juta orang, penerimaan tiket Rp 3.200 per penumpang.

"Jadi, biaya operasional per penumpang Rp 5.500 dikurangi penerimaan tiket Rp 3.200, hasilnya Rp 2.300. Ini yang disubsidi Pemprov DKI, bukan Rp 150 seperti yang dikatakan selama ini," ujar Sayogo.

Secara terpisah, Manajer Sarana dan Prasarana Transjakarta, Taufik Adiwiyanto mengatakan, membengkaknya subsidi tiket yang harus dibayar Pemprov DKI, disebabkan sistem harga flat yang diberlakukan saat ini. Setiap hari, jumlah penumpang transjakarta rata-rata 160.000 orang. Namun, yang membayar tiket hanya 120.000 penumpang, sedangkan 40.000 lainnya tidak membayar karena penumpang transfer antarkoridor busway.

Dengan kondisi tersebut, jumlah penerimaan tiket tidak mencapai target. Pada 2006, target pendapatan tiket ditetapkan Rp 205 miliar. Namun, realisasi penerimaan hingga Agustus 2006, baru mencapai Rp 84,19 miliar.

"Penerimaan tidak mencapai target bukan karena kebocoran, tetapi karena ada harga flat untuk tiket penumpang transfer yang tidak kami perhitungkan sebelumnya," ujar Taufik.

Sistem "Ticketing"

Menanggapi hal itu, Sayogo mengatakan, ke depan, Pemprov harus membuat sistem ticketing yang memperhitungkan berbagai risiko, agar subsidi untuk penumpang tidak terus membengkak. "Bayangkan, baru tiga koridor saja subsidi yang ditanggung Pemprov DKI sudah Rp 2.300 per penumpang. Apalagi kalau sampai tujuh koridor dioperasikan dan jumlah penumpangnya diperkirakan 100 juta orang?" kata Sayogo.

Menurut dia, Pemprov DKI harus memperhitungkan risiko operasional busway untuk ditanggung bersama dengan operator. Untuk itu, sistem ticketing harus diperhitungkan sejak awal dengan berbagai asumsi, terutama menyangkut harga dan jarak tempuh.

Sayogo mengungkapkan, Pemprov DKI dapat saja menerapkan harga tiket sesuai jarak tempuh, bukan dengan harga flat, seperti yang diberlakukan saat ini. Seperti diketahui, penumpang busway cukup membayar maksimal Rp 3.500 dan dapat berpindah dari satu koridor ke koridor lain tanpa membayar lagi.

Secara terpisah, Kepala Dinas Perhubungan DKI Jakarta Nurachman, mengakui, Pemprov DKI tidak pernah menetapkan besaran subsidi untuk penumpang busway. Pembayaran biaya operasional dilakukan sesuai jumlah penumpang yang dihitung pada akhir tahun.

"Untuk subsidi, belum pernah ditentukan berapa besar. Kita menghitung subsidi dari anggaran operasional busway dikurangi pendapatan. Nah, itu yang dibayarkan Pemprov DKI Jakarta kepada operator busway," kata Nurachman. [J-9]

If I'm not mistaken, right now the subsidy is based on number of Kilometer travelled by bus and number of passanger. Correct me if I'm wrong
@sanhen and alvin, according to the latest news in, Jakarta BRT will adopt distance or zoning fare. The parliament agrees too. This system will be implemented as soon as the construction of line 4-7 are completed.

@peseg5: thanks for the explanation
from today, 3 new lines to be build in year 2007. Budget 350 Billion Rupiah:

Line 8: Pondok Indah - Harmoni Central Busway: 18Km
Line 9: Cililitan - Pluit (via MT Haryono): 15Km
Line 10: Cililitan - Tj Priok (via By Pass): 15 Km

Gatra online also reported similar news: (in Bahasa Indonesia)

i think you're talking about 'KARET'/'DUKUH ATAS' busway shelter, right? they are building a new one since this will be a connection point between line BlokM-Kota and line 4 (Pulo Gadung-Dukuh Atas) if I'm not mistaken.
