(8/16/2011)

The operators of the new Trans-Sarbagita Bus System for Bali, Perum Damri Denpasar, are complaining that the new buses given to Bali by the Central Government in Jakarta are too big for most Bali roadways.

Evidence supporting the “oversized” problem of Bali’s new fleet of buses presented during trial runs for two new buses held in early August in which one of the vehicles collided with the ornamental Balinese gates at the entrance of the Nusa Dua Complex.

According to Bisnis.com, the actual amount of damage sustained in the collision remains unclear, but is believed to be confined to scratches and dents on the left hand side. The accident caused no injuries.

The head of operations for Perum Damri Denpasar, I Made Suma Artika, admitted to the press that the Trans Sarbagita buses are too big for Bali’s small roads, putting pressure on the operator to recruit only the most skilled drivers.

Looking ahead, Artika said, “the routes and destinations (for the bus system) have been established, including the designation of several corridors.” Reacting to the mishap at Nusa Dua, he said it is unlikely that any changes will be made to the planned bus routes. “Perum Damri Denpasar is only the operators, later the problem of routes will be coordinated with the local transportation department,” he explained.

During the test run, 2 of the fleet of 15 buses were tested. Now the various routes of the new system are being checked by traveling with the new buses  through Batubulan, Gianyar, Badung and Nusa Dua

Once launched, the buses will operate with a tariff of Rp. 3,500 (US$0.40) for adults and Rp. 2,500 (US$0.29) for students. The air-conditioned buses will operate with 33 seats and atnding-room for an additional 50 passengers.
