The first BRT system in Southeast Asia, it commenced operations on 15 January to provide a fast public transport system to help reduce rush hour traffic. The system is considered as the first revolutionary public transit mode in the capital city of Indonesia.
TransJakarta has the world's longest BRT system As of February , it serves an average of 1. TransJakarta was built to provide a fast, comfortable, and affordable mass transportation system. To accomplish those objectives, the buses were given lanes restricted to other traffic and separated by concrete blocks on the streets that became part of the busway routes.
The first TransJakarta line opened to the public on 15 January At present TransJakarta has 13 primary routes and ten cross-corridor routes. TransJakarta has a total of routes as of January corridor, cross route, and feeder route , a significant increase from 41 in As of September , Transjakarta is currently testing electric buses ,   with Bundaran Senayan - Monas as its first route. TransJakarta operates from am to pm. As of March , Transjakarta operates in routes.
Seven routes have limited overnight services providing hour operation. When TransJakarta commenced in , 15 corridors were planned, and 13 are now operational. In , the newest corridor opened.
It is the first elevated corridor on the TransJakarta network. Corridors 14, and 15 are designed to be a grade-separated elevated BRT line. Other than main BRT routes, TransJakarta operates 11 BRT express routes shortened version of the regular BRT routes , 25 city bus routes integrated to BRT stations, ten suburban routes to satellite cities, and eight routes serving low-cost apartments.
In addition to the 15 main corridors, TransJakarta, in cooperation with other public transportation companies, provides feeder buses to passengers from suburbs outside Jakarta to bus termini. Service is provided by 18 buses with two buses in reserve and the service frequency is between 30 minutes and an hour.
Service is provided by 28 buses with two buses in reserve and a to minute frequency. Each bus is constructed with passengers' safety in mind. For example, the body frame is constructed using Galvanyl Zn - Fe Alloy , a strong and rust-resistant metal. There are also eight or ten glass-shattering hammers mounted on some of the window frames, and three emergency doors for fast evacuation during an emergency.
There are also two fire extinguishers at the front and back of the buses. The Mercedes-Benz OH and Hino RG air-conditioned buses are painted red and yellow, with a picture of a young brahminy kite , which looks similar to a bald eagle grasping a tree branch with three salaks on it. The buses use special fuel which is a mix of diesel and biodiesel. For Corridor 2 bus colours: blue and white and 3 bus colours: yellow and red , the buses are CNG -fueled Daewoo buses imported from South Korea.
Due to various coach builders being involved and design tweaks applied over time, the exterior and interior appearance, quality, and comfort varies between buses operating in the same corridor. Currently, these buses are no longer operational and replaced by newer buses. The newer buses are equipped with two doors on each side to improve passenger flow in and out of the bus.
Aside from that, the driver and passengers are now divided by a bulkhead to give the driver more concentration while driving on the road. The capacity of each bus varies from 85, to passengers. Single Mercedes-Benz and Hino buses can carry about 85 passengers. For the Scania and Mercedes-Benz Maxi buses can carry passengers, and can be carried by standard articulated buses. Ahead of Asian Games , Transjakarta has added Volvo buses and Scania buses to its fleet. The passenger doors are higher than on ordinary buses so that passengers can only board from designated shelters.
The doors employ automated swing and slide mechanisms which are manually controlled by the driver. Currently, the slide mechanism is being phased out, with all new buses being equipped with swing doors. Protective full-height acrylic glass barriers are installed behind passenger seats close to the sliding door mechanism.
Although, feeder routes use low street-level doors. This is achieved with the driver's door at the front-left side of the bus on big buses and a pair of a designated hydraulic folding door on medium buses. Seats in old buses face the aisle to optimise passengers' movement during rush hours. New Buses have their seats facing front, which is to reduce sexual harassment that usually happens in public transportation in rush hours.
Each bus is equipped with an electronic board and speakers that announce the name of shelters in Indonesian and English. Announcers without English voice in them are being phased out for the bilingual announcer. Each bus is also equipped with a bi-directional radio transceiver to allow the driver to provide and receive updated information regarding traffic jams, road accidents or lost items.
To keep the air fresh, especially during rush hours each bus is equipped with automatic air freshener dispensers which periodically spray car fragrance. In August , TransJakarta operator installed cameras on one bus for a trial period. The plan is to install four cameras on each bus gradually in efforts to improve services such as to inform passengers waiting for buses about how crowded approaching buses are, and to prevent sexual harassment. In order to promote gender equity, TransJakarta is increasing the number of female driver recruits.
Starting 21 April , TransJakarta launched several new female-only buses for Corridor 1. TransJakarta has disabled-friendly buses on few routes. It will collect more disabled-friendly buses within to operate in routes. Transportasi Jakarta are being repaired after one of it went up in flames at early December Bianglala Metropolitan are going to be auctioned. TransJakarta shelters are different from ordinary bus stops.
They are usually located in the middle of the road and are reached by elevated bridges. Some stops are equipped with an escalator or lift and designed to be integrated into nearby buildings.
The shelters are made from aluminium, steel, and glass. Air ventilation works through fins on the aluminium part of the shelters. Floors are made from tread plate, although newer shelters now use concrete. The shelters are equipped with platform screen doors.
Some of the connecting elevated bridge ramps have gentle slopes with some exceptions to accommodate the disabled. One disadvantage of some of the ramps is that passengers need to walk a relatively long way up the ramps and then double back to reach the boarding shelters.
The floors of the bridge are mostly treading plates, although some are made from concrete. One problem with the tread plate is that considerable noise is generated by the movement of passengers across the tread plate surfaces. Another problem is that some of the tread plate surfaces can become slippery during the rainy season. There are no sanitary facilities in most of the shelters.
Bus stops are open from — although opening hours can be extended if there are passengers still waiting at closing time. Shelters often become extremely overcrowded because of long and sometimes unpredictable intervals between buses. According to a report from the Indonesian Consumers Protection Foundation in , the most common complaint from passengers about the service offered by Transjakarta was the long wait times for buses at some of the main shelters.
A free daily internal bulletin, 'Trans Kota', is occasionally available at selected shelters. The content includes sport, show business, crime, health, various tips and tricks, consumer information and TransJakarta news.
It is a transit point between Corridors 1, 2, 3, 7A, and 8. This person shelter has 14 bus bays. Although many trees had to be sacrificed during the construction of it, an old banyan tree was not chopped down because it was considered rich in historical value.
However, in October this tree was vandalised by people from the Pemuda Persatuan Islam religious group. Their motive was to show that the tree does not possess supernatural qualities. The cost of a TransJakarta ticket since its opening has been a flat rate of Rp 2. An exception is in effect at the line terminus. Passengers can purchase a single-journey paper ticket at the ticket booth in the shelter. In , TransJakarta introduced the use of prepaid cards or e-tickets for passenger use.
The prepaid cards can be purchased and topped-up at any ticket booth in the shelter throughout the system, or the ATM of the issuing bank. The e-ticket is priced at Rp 40,, Rp 20, for the card itself and a balance of Rp 20, Now, all TransJakarta corridors and shelters applied the compulsory use of the e-tickets , since 21 February The system is meant to control the flow of people going in and out of the shelters, discourage illegal entrance to and exit from the shelters, and to encourage sales and usage of the "e-tickets".
In October , the system had been implemented in all corridors of TransJakarta. During rush hours, people from upper or middle classes one of the main targets of TransJakarta usually prefer to use private cars or taxis to avoid the inconvenience of the overcrowded TransJakarta buses even though they have to bear with traffic jams instead.
This situation is at odds with one of the objectives of TransJakarta, which was to reduce traffic jam during rush hours by persuading private car owners to use comfortable public transport. There is a special program for the student groups called TransJakarta goes to school. Participants in the program are assigned a dedicated bus. The aim is to train students to stand in line, be decent, and prefer public transport than personal vehicles.
The municipal government has been trying to encourage the population to shift from their private vehicles to public transportation, especially TransJakarta. Thus, several regulations are put in place to restrict private cars on the street. By August , the odd-even traffic policy increases TransJakarta passengers by 30, A number of design and operational problems have been identified. Despite having an 'exclusive' bus lane, unauthorised vehicles illegally using the lanes in an attempt to more quickly navigate through the traffic jams are commonplace.
Depot maintenance shops and special gas stations most buses use compressed natural gas CNG often have long lines of buses, restricting the availability of buses for service.
