The provincial government of Bali has made an initial decision to develop a public transportation system for Denpasar, Badung, Gianyar and Tabanan (Sabargita), slated to begin operations in November 2010.
As reported by beritabali.com, the mass transport system will emulate the bus-way system now in operation in Indonesia’s capital of Jakarta in an effort to reduce traffic jams by providing affordable transportation options to the people of Bali.
Krisdiyanto of the Bali Transportation Department said that the Bali provincial government is undertaking studies to determine mass transit routes to accommodate an initial armada of 20 busses that will serve the routes.
Initial plans call for a total of 17 mass transit corridors to be established.
