Jasa Marga Launched Fare-Free Monday for Transport Solution

Bekasi (11/03) - PT Jasa Marga Tbk. has just launched FARE-FREE MONDAY for Transjakarta passengers at Summarecon Bekasi Bus Stop heading for Tosari and Tanjung Priok.  The subsidy applies beginning today at 5-9 a.m and 4-8 p.m to late April of 2019.

In collaboration with PT Transportasi Jakarta, Jasa Marga Corporate Communication and Community Development Group Head Dwimawan Heru Santoso says that the program is an alternative solution for traffic issues.

"We chose rush hours, 5 to 9 a.m and 4 to 8 p.m, the hectic period when Bekasi citizens drive along Jakarta-Cikampek Toll Road amidst the simultaneous massive infrastructural developments," he explained.

Passengers can ride Transjakarta Bus for free as the fare has already been fully paid by Jasa Marga.  Jasa Marga officers will therefore be stationed at Summarecon Bekasi Bus Stop to tap in every passenger at the entrance. It applies for departure only though, from Bekasi to Jakarta, and does not apply for round-trips.

Ramadhani Safitri, one of the Transjakarta passengers at Summarecon Bus Stop, is very pleased with the program.

"I'm really glad that my early morning ​departure to work is already paid for.  I really hope that the program will thrive​," she hopes.

Meanwhile, Agus Zakaria, a regular passenger of Transjakarta, said that the program is the right campaign to reduce traffic congestions through public transportations.

"This is a really nice program. The community, particularly Bekasi citizens, are already beginning to use public transportations and reducing traffic congestions," he said.
