Changes in the bus operational (Depok-UKI) that passes around Bumi Perkemahan Cibubur is getting high enthusiasm from the Cibubur people. Hence, Wednesday (14/9) today, Transjakarta has added one articulated bus unit.

"It's to meet the requirements due to high demand. This articulated bus departs every morning at 6 AM and 6.30 AM towards Grogol through UKI bus stop," said Budi Prasetia, Head of Transjakarta Public Relations, Wednesday (9/14).

At this time, the bus (Depok-UKI) through Cibubur is served by 11 single buses routinely, starting at 5 AM-10 PM. The number of passengers from Cibubur continues to increase since July 2016, and has hit 300 passengers. And now has touched 2,300 customers per day.

"This articulated bus only serves once from Cibubur and Grogol in the morning. Because of high demand, the passenger doesn't need transit from corridor to corridor," he explained.

In future, potential the increase in bus customer is still very possible. Moreover, it also supported by odd and even policy.

"Our hope is people willing to leave private vehicle and move to public transport as alternative transport," he hoped.
