TransJakarta is a new mode transportation bus rapid transit system in Jakarta, Indonesia. TransJakarta started on January 15, 2004 and currently has 7 corridors (or lines) with 32 new corridors under construction. TransJakarta was designed to provide the citizens of Jakarta a fast public transportation system to help reduce rush hour traffic.
The rate of transjakarta is cheap and everybody can reach it. This system has been highly criticized and opposed by road users as the TransJakarta bus-only lane reduces road space in already narrow streets of Jakarta. The system's goal of increasing traffic efficiency in Jakarta's key road sectors has failed for the most part as the majority of Jakarta's roads are too narrow to accommodate the extra lane. Consequently, there is increased traffic congestion in all parts of the TransJakarta routes.
