Jakarta, IO – PT Transjakarta has officially extended its operating hours in 13 corridors to 24 hours starting today, Monday (12/9). Transjakarta spokesperson Anang Rizkani Noor said there are several reasons behind the decision, one being to accommodate people who work late into the night.

“Hopefully the operating hours extension will help the community mobility, especially after the fuel price hike,” said Anang, as reported by Okezone, Monday (12/9).
