TransJakarta Introduces New Route, Making It Easier to Reach Soekarno-Hatta Airport

Transjakarta Targets 95% Area Coverage by 2023

The community will experience improved convenience in accessing Soekarno-Hatta International Airport, thanks to the recent inauguration of the trial route for TransJakarta Kalideres-Soekarno Hatta Airport on Wednesday (5/7/2023). This trial, scheduled to last for two weeks, aims to address the transportation needs of Jakarta’s residents, especially those who frequently travel in and around the airport area.

According to Heru Budi Hartono, the Acting Governor of DKI Jakarta, the newly introduced route will operate from 06:00 AM to 09:00 AM and from 06:00 PM to 09:00 PM, catering to the diverse needs of the public. He emphasizes, “This service is for everyone, ensuring that the community can conveniently commute during their daily activities.”

During the two-week trial period, the TransJakarta Kalideres-Soekarno Hatta route will be free of charge. Heru clarifies that the fare for the subsequent operational phase will be determined based on survey results, which will ensure it aligns with the public’s expectations.

To facilitate this service, PT TransJakarta has assigned 10 bus fleets, capable of accommodating approximately 2,500 passengers daily. The estimated travel time between Kalideres and the Soekarno-Hatta Airport is approximately 43 minutes. The route encompasses various locations, providing a seamless connection for commuters.

The Kalideres-Soekarno Hatta route includes stops at Kalideres 1, Pospol Daan Mogot Baru, Jln. Bedegul, SMAN 84, the intersection of Jln. Peta Selatan, Kairos Gracia School, Jln. Citra Garden VII, Jln. Alam Raya, Jln. Rawa Lele, Jln. Husein Sastranegara, SHIA Gate 1, Sbr. Sowan Shopping and Tourism, Jln. Cengkareng Golf Club 1, Soewarna Foodhall 1, Jln. Cengkareng Golf Club 3, Cargo Terminal 1, Cargo Terminal 2, and the Soekarno-Hatta Office Complex.

Moreover, the implementation of the TransJakarta Kalideres-Soekarno Hatta route is expected to alleviate traffic congestion in Jakarta, offering a more efficient and reliable transportation option for commuters. Heru emphasizes that this initiative aims to create a more sustainable urban transportation system and enhance the overall quality of life for Jakarta’s residents.

This new development aligns with the efforts of the Jakarta Provincial Government and PT TransJakarta to continuously improve public transportation services. By facilitating easier access to the airport, this initiative not only benefits local residents but also supports the growth of tourism and trade in the region.

The success of this trial period will determine the future tariff structure for the TransJakarta Kalideres-Soekarno Hatta route. The government aims to provide an affordable and efficient transportation option for commuters, ensuring that the service remains accessible to all segments of society.
