Jasa Marga and ASDP had Sent off 1,500 Homebound Motorbikers to Bakauheni
Merak (5/28) - The Ministry of State-owned Enterprise (SOEs) and PT Jasa Marga (Persero) Tbk had reorganized an annual Free Homebound trip for the 2019/1440 H Eid holiday.
Jasa Marga has targeted to give away free homebound trips to 2,500 travelers (by bus and ship). The number of vehicles rose by 19% compared to last year which reached 2,100.
The premiere was conducted today (5/28) through the synergy with PT ASDP Indonesia. Ferry sees off 1,500 motorbike homebound travelers to cross over Merak Port to Bakauheni.
Jasa Marga's Corporate Communications and Community Development Group Head Dwimawan Heru said the program was the implementation of SOEs for the Nation Program which enables the community to celebrate their Eid holiday with family and friends hometown.
“Jasa Marga supports family gatherings. We, therefore, hope for their convenient and safe round trip,” Heru explained when he sees off the homebound motorbike-travelers.
The motorbike travelers will head to Bakauheni to get the free ticket after registering online. They will depart from the executive terminal at 10.00 a.m. and 12.00 p.m.
Heru mentioned that Jasa Marga will also send off the remaining travelers by bus.
“There are 1,100 registered travelers of 24 buses heading for six Java's major cities, namely Semarang, Magelang, Solo, Jogja, Purbalingga, and Purwokerto,” he says.
He hopes next year's homebound trip by sea will even be better facilitated by Jasa Marga. Last year, Jasa Marga synergized with PT Pelni and PT Pelindo to send off 1,600 homebound travelers from Kumai Port, Pangkalan Bun, to Semarang, Central Java.
"The homebound trip will hopefully be a success and that the travelers will reach their destination safely. We will certainly hope for another one like this next year, and of course, with more travelers,” he hoped.
The SOE Ministry herself targets 250,000 homebound-travelers to opt in the program which was organized by104 SOEs. Transportation fleets - buses, trains, ships, and aircraft - have been prepared for this annual agenda.
