Jakarta, IO – A row of damaged and neglected TransJakarta buses parked in the Pulo Gebang Integrated Terminal, Jakarta.

In 2018, the Jakarta Transportation Bureau planned to write off region-owned property (BMD) in the form of 417 units of bus by auctioning them off. Currently, hundreds of derelict buses have been handed over to the Regional Asset Management Agency.

They are parked in nine locations, namely the TransJakarta headquarters, Pinang Ranti bus pool, Ciganjur, Rawa Buaya, Hek Kramatjati bus pool, Pesing, Bianglala Ciputat, Pulo Gebang terminal, and Pulo Gadung terminal. Many of the busses are covered with rust, with broken windows and doors.

TransJakarta, a bus rapid transit system modelled after the one in Bogota, Colombia, started its operation on January 15, 2004 using various types of chassis, including Zhongtong, Yutong, Hino, Mercedez, Hyundai, Komodo, Ankai to Inobus, before shifting to premium-quality Mercedes-Benz, Scania and Volvo. The first-generation busses with their characteristic orange and yellow livery have been neglected since they were decommissioned in 2018.
