A new fleet of feeder mini buses has just been launched by the Denpasar Transportation Agency. These buses are designed to optimize Trans Sarbagita public bus services, which will largely affect tourists who are trying to get around the area.
There are a total of 56 mini buses that runs daily, serving four routes that all interested at the Trans Sarbagita bus routes. While the buses were just officially launched they actually began their routes on September 10, 2012 and according to the Bali Daily during their first 11 days of operation they served approximately 6,500 passengers.
There are two shifts of busses that run so you can catch a bus from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m seven days a week. Routes will be evaluated to ensure they are meeting the needs of the area. There is also a plan to launch more buses in the future so that they can connect passengers to other parts of the city.
“The most important thing is that Trans Sarbagita could now be more accessible to a greater number of people thanks to the feeder buses that take them to and from the nearest bus stops,” he told Bali Daily.
Bali’s mass transportation system focuses on 17 main routes and 36 feeder routes by 2019, to reduce the traffic condition that continues to worsen in southern Bali.
