Through JakLingko, DKI Jakarta Provincial Government provides an integrated transportation system by applying one-trip rate where people can use various types of public transportation throughout Jakarta. This certainly makes it easier for people who are active outside to travel in a safety and comfort way without having to ride a private vehicle.
Andry Aji (35), an employee who lives in Parung Panjang, Bogor, West Java feels this benefit. He admitted that he always uses commuter line electric train (KRL) and Transjakarta bus to go to his office on Jln. Gatot Subroto, South Jakarta.
"I got off the train at Palmerah Station and continued my trip using Transjakarta bus to the office. After going down the stairs outside the station, we can immediately saw Transjakarta bus stop. Besides, it is enough just to use one JakLingko card to pay the fare, so it is more practical, safe, comfortable, and fast. Because now JakLingko card can also be used to pay KRL and Transjakarta bus fares," he said at Palmerah Station, Saturday (11/21).
Other public transport users, Aprilia (28) also felt at ease using JakLingko card. Since she lives in Cilandak, South Jakarta, she often uses Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) train to the office at Jalan Medan Merdeka Selatan, Central Jakarta.
"I usually get off at Bundaran HI MRT Station and take a transit to Bundaran HI Transjakarta Bus Shelter to go to my office. It is easier and more practical," she conveyed.
According to her, integration transportation service between MRT and Transjakarta at Bundaran HI makes it safer and more comfortable for passengers because they don't need to cross or walk far to get to the Transjakarta bus shelter.
"It saves more time, as well as safe and comfortable," she expressed.
For information, JakLingko which launched by Jakarta Governor, Anies Baswedan integrated all public transportation services in Jakarta. Using electronic money card called JakLingko card, passengers can take a ride using large buses such as Transjakarta buses, medium buses such as Minitrans buses, small buses such as Mikrotrans, even MRT and LRT trains.
Thus for residents who still rely on private vehicles to travel, it is better to start using integrated transportation system, JakLingko. Besides getting convenience and comfort, residents who use JakLingko can also support Jakarta Government in reducing air pollution.
