(1/6/2012)

Bali’s new Sarbagita Bus System, which has been sometimes slow to win the acceptance of the public, was overwhelmed with passengers over the New Year’s holidays.

Ida Bagus Parsha, the man in charge of Bali’s commuter bus service, told Radar Bali that for the period August through November 2011 the system carried an average 1,514 passengers every day. Commencing from early December, that number increased to 1,894 passengers per day, growing by 25%.

The popularity of the bus system surged even further on January 1, 2012 when the number of passengers traveling hit 5,513 passengers – a 264% increase in average use over the proceeding four months.

Business was such on the first day of 2012 that the bus haltes of the Sarbagita Bus System were full to overflowing with long lines of passengers waiting to board.

Said Pasha, “this is way beyond our expectations that the passenger numbers would suddenly explode.”

Pasha said the sudden rush of passengers reflected an urge among the public to experience the Sarbagita Bus System and was beyond all expectations, causing the busses, in some instances, to leave travelers at the bus stops when those waiting to board exceeded the carrying capacity of the busses.
