Public Transport Reform Guide in Indonesian Cities
The inability of big cities in Indonesia to provide good public transport is indicated by the worsening condition of public transportation with a decline in service quality and a decrease in the number of public transport passengers. Coupled with the policy of providing mass transportation which tends to eradicate or limit the role of existing transportation (buses and minibusses). The government needs to give these issues special attention from the government because public transport is still needed and still needed to be developed.
Seeing this phenomenon, ITDP Indonesia issued a guide entitled, “Public Transport Reform Guide in Indonesian Cities”. The guidelines contain an outline of the mechanism and scheme in reforming public transport in Indonesia. Later, this guide will continue to be improved with the involvement and help by the Ministry of Transportation of the Republic of Indonesia.
The main objective of this guide is to provide a comprehensive overview of the steps in improving public transport, which can be carried out by the city government (governor, the mayor, and related city agencies) and various stakeholders in the transportation sector. This guide also provides concrete examples of various experiences and stages of implementing public transport reform in Indonesia.
