Missing the Buses

Jakarta Reneges on Promise for 10 More Buses for the Baliís Sarbagita Mass Transit System

(11/28/2011)

The promise from the central government for an additional 10 buses to add to the existing armada of 15 vehicles on the Sarbagita Mass-transit system now appears to be in doubt.

The secretary of Commission III of the Bali House of Representatives (DPRD-Bali), Gusti Ngurah Suryanta Putra, told NusaBali on Thursday, November 24, 2011, that an initial promise of 10 more busses has somehow suddenly dwindled to just 5 more units.

There are currently 15 busses operating on the Sarbagita System.

The DPRD-Bali and the Transportation Ofice for Bali are busily lobbying the Department of Transportation in Jakarta to retain the original promise of 10 more busses. These efforts, however, are being frustrated to some degree by the current vacancy in the lead position at the Bali office of the Department of Transportation.

The remaining 5 new buses are scheduled for delivery to Bali in late December 2011.

Bali traffic congestion problems and growing popularity of the Sarbagita Bus System makes the need for the originally promised 10 additional buses a pressing matter.

Funds have also been allocated from the provincial budget for the care and upkeep of the Sarbagita Bus system, supplemented by the fares being collected from the system’s passengers.
