As for the information, the Jakarta administration has again conducted a trial of electric buses starting last June 13. That is on route 5 F (Kampung Melayu - Tanah Abang), every day between 5 AM to 10 PM.
Each passenger is charged a fare of Rp 0 but must still tap in on the bus using an Electronic Money Card (KUE).
