***) Otherwise, you can also use the map that i provide below to find a bus stop/shelter (halte) nearby:

TRANS METRO DEWATA & TRANS SARBAGITA BUS

*) Trans Metro Dewata bus is another project of Indonesia transportation ministry (Kemenhub RI). The previous project is Trans SARBAGITA bus which is need an evaluation. It seems the Trans Sarbagita bus did not fulfilled the government’s target. People don’t want to use their services and still depend on their own vehicles. It seems the previous project is useless, waste money and need an evaluation.

TRANS METRO DEWATA & TRANS SARBAGITA BUS

**) Bali governor Mr Wayan Koster when launching Trans Metro Dewata bus on September 7th, 2020 says: “I have noticed that Trans Sarbagita, which has been operating so far, has less demand, continues to lose losses. However, the design is also less attractive”. It seems his statement not based on research.

***) I found some reasons why a Trans Sarbagita bus project become a failed project:

  1. Not on time schedule.
  2. No bus stop/halte/shelter in the big population area (such as Sesetan).
  3. Not enough bus unit in rush hours.
  4. Conflict of interests in Bali transportation business (Taxi, shuttle bus, tours, travel company, online transport, etc.)
  5. Political will.

It show how Bali government and Indonesia transportation ministry (Kemenhub RI) are lazy people to do research and evaluation. It’s really waste people’s money of Indonesia (Uang Rakyat). It seems the government has failed to fulfill its obligations. Even Balinese parliament and intellectual (scholars) are silent on this failure. What a shame!

*) Bali government need to learn from Jakarta and Yogyakarta government about bus rapid transit (BRT) planning & management. They can manage ‘Trans Jakarta bus’ and ‘Trans Jogja bus’ very well.
