(6/7/2012)

As part of Bali’s celebration of the 54th anniversary of Bali's establishment as a province, the 34th Bali Arts Festival, and the 67th celebration of national independence on August 17, 2012, Bali’s governor Made Mangku Pastika has declared a period of free bus travel for 3 months on the Trans-Sarbagita Bus System commencing June 1, 2012.

The provision of free bus rides applies to all passengers, both domestic and visiting foreign tourists, and will end on August 31, 2012.

The governor proclaimed the 3-month free bus ride program following a meeting held to review preparations for the 34th Bali Arts Festival on June 6, 2012.

The Trans-Sarbagita Bus System runs a route from Batubulan-Kuta-Nusa Dua on the Jalan Bypass Ngurah Rai.

The governor has asked that bus conductors continue to issue tickets during the free-ride period but not to request any payment from passengers.

Quoted in Beritabali.com, governor Pastika said, “Give the passenger tickets anyway. This will allow us to measure the growth in passenger numbers on the Trans-Sarbagita system."

Seputarbali.com reports that the governor recently traveled incognito on the Trans-Sarbagita Bus System, riding alone and wearing a hat and glasses to conceal his true identity. The driver and conductor reportedly only became aware they had the governor on board as Pastika disembarked at the BTDC in Nusa Dua. The trip allowed the governor to see first hand the operation and the growing public acceptance of the bus system first launched on August 18, 2011.

Based on his experience, the governor identified the need to reduce waiting time at halts, having personally waited 42 minutes for his bus instead of the advertised 15 minutes.

He also called on the operators of the bus system to give full attention to matters of service and cleanliness.
