Semarang City is the Capital of Central Java Province with an area of 373.78 km2. With a population of more than 1.7 million (2016 data), it is time for the movement of citizens in Semarang to be facilitated more efficiently. Although public transportation is already available in Semarang City, such as public transportation, regular buses, and Trans Semarang, private motor vehicles still dominate the share mode in Semarang. At present, with 6 routes operating, Trans Semarang has carried up to 25 thousand trips per day. However, this number is relatively low compared to the number of urban transportation users (angkot), which is 50% of total public transportation trips.
ITDP Indonesia as an NGO that promotes sustainable transportation, and is committed to helping municipal governments in Indonesia improve the quality of mass transportation, has several proposals for the Semarang City Government to optimize Trans Semarang so that it can become a BRT system that has international standards. One of them is by implementing the full BRT corridor with special lanes.
