Damri operates 27 airport buses

The state-owned bus company (Damri) operates 27 new busses to cater to the public's escalating demand on economic transportation to and from the Soekarno-Hatta international airport.

The company's president, Anas Mars, said over the weekend that the company spent a total of Rp 4.5 billion (US$2.08 million) for the procurement of the 35-seat new buses.

"The operation of the fleet is aimed at fulfilling the high demand of the passengers on public, low-cost transportation," he said.

Passengers taking Damri buses from any point in the city to the Soekarno-Hatta airport or vice-versa are charged only Rp 3,000 per trip per person.

Transportation Minister Haryanto Dhanutirto led the ceremony marking the launch of the new Damri fleet. (03)
