BeritaBali.com reports that the provincial government of Bali has completed all the preparations and established a management system together with an operational capacity to handle the long-awaited Trans-Sarbagita mass transit system.

But, unfortunately, one component is still missing: the 18 new buses promised from the central government that will connect the communities of Denpasar, Badung, Gianyar and Tabanan.

Bali's governor Made Mangku Pastika told the press on Wednesday, December 29, 2010, that operationally, the Trans-Sarbagita was ready to go, but Jakarta has yet to make good on its promised fleet of buses.

Staff have been trained, routes and fares planned, and a series of attractive sheltered bus stops constructed to start the new bus system in 2010. But, lamented the governor: "Indeed, the buses haven't come yet, so what are we to use? The provision of the buses is from the Center (Jakarta)."

The governor insisted that the infrastructure in support of the new mass transit system was 100% ready. All that's missing, he bemoaned, are the buses.

The original plans were for a total of 25 buses to ply the Trans-Sarbagita system with 18 to be supplied from Jakarta and the remaining 7 vehicles to be purchased with the provincial budget.

In a separate report, Bisnis Bali, says the Trans-Sarbagita bus system will now commence operations in February 2011.

Made Santha, the chief of the Bali provincial Transportation, Communication and Information Office told the Provincial House of Representatives (DPRD-Bali): "In February the buses will be sent and immediately begin operating. Right now, the buses are being fitted out."

He confirmed that the 18 buses will have a capacity for 40 seated and 20 standing passengers.

Santha added: "We have already prepared the bus stops, terminal and routes.
