(5/19/2013)

The Bali Daily (Jakarta Post) hints that the Bali Transportation Agency plans to introduce substantially higher fares for passengers who use a new bus service to connect the Trans-Sarbagita Bus Network to Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport.

Set to start trial operations in late May 2013, the new service will represent the third corridor of service for the Trans-Sarbagita system. Existing routes run from Batubulan to Nusa Dua and Denpasar to Jimbaran.

Dewa Putra Putu Punia Asa, head of the Bali Transportation Agency said: 

“We will trial the airport route after the gubernatorial election is over. After the trial, we will study special tariffs for the route.”

The current bus fare on the Sarbagita system is Rp. 3,500 (US$0.35). However, an individual ticket of Rp. 30,000 (US$3) is being considered for those considering taking the bus to the airport. A lower, discounted monthly fare would also be available in order to encourage 8,000 airport workers to help reduce traffic congestion by using the bus system.

The implementation of the airport bus service remains dependent on a supply of subsidized buses promised by the Transportation Ministry. Bali is waiting for a delivery of 30 new buses promised by Jakarta, part of which will be used on the new route.

Jakarta transportation officials are, however, painting a doubtful picture on if and when more busses will be coming from Jakarta. Bali is being urged to invest its own funds in developing the bus system.

Bali Transportation officials have said they would, if necessary, borrow five buses from the existing bus system to provide public bus transport to the airport.

Rather than wait for busses or funding from Jakarta, the director of Urban Transport System Development at the Land Transportation Directorate General of the Transportation Ministry, Djoko Saksono, said: 

“The central government has provided bus grants in the past, now we expect the local administration to start developing their system, instead of relying on the central government’s grants. We do believe that public transportation in Bali is urgent. But our support may not always come in the form of state budget allocation because it is limited.”
