Higher Ferry Tariff Bali to Lombok

Ferry Charges Increase on Bali to Lombok Public Ferry Between 10-15%

(6/30/2013) 

The State News Agency Antara reports that the tariff from the ferry crossing between Padang Bai in Bali and Lembar in Lombok increased effective at midnight on Sunday, June 23, 2013.
 
The rate increase came as a surprise to many inter-island travelers.

Nengah Widiasa (40), a motorcyclist at Padang Bai wishing to travel to Lombok, said: “Usually I pay Rp. 101,000 (US$10,10), but I was just charged Rp. 112,000 (US$11.20). That’s an increase of Rp. 11,000 (US$1.10).
 
Widiasa, who lives, Amlapura, East Bali, said he was unhappy that there was apparently no prior announcement about the increase in fares.
 
Separately, the supervisor for PT ASDP Indonesia Ferry in Padang Bai, I Wayan Rosta, explained that the new tariff for the inter-island ferry took place on Monday, June 24th in accordance with a decree of the Minister of Transportation (63/2013) allowing tariff increases of between 10 and 15%.

That decree stipulated that the cost of an adult fare on the ferry between Padang Bai and Lombok increased from Rp. 36,000 (US$3.60) to Rp. 40,000 (US$40) and for children from Rp. 23,000 (US$2.30) to Rp. 25,000 (US$2.50).
