Jakarta (ANTARA) – Minister of Transportation Budi Karya Sumadi said that electricity-based mass transportation (electric vehicles) in the Archipelago Capital City (IKN) in East Kalimantan will start operating in August 2024.

“We think that the implementation of electric vehicles in IKN can relatively be done in August,” said Sumadi when inspecting Transjakarta mass transportation in Jakarta, Sunday.

The Archipelago Capital Authority (OIKN) provides electric buses for mass transportation. Apart from electric buses, there are also trackless autonomous trains or Autonomous-rail Rapid Transit (ART) to serve mass transportation.

“ART is a kind of tram, but what’s special is that it doesn’t have rails and electricity, it uses batteries, and in August it started running,” he said.

Ministers and echelon I officials are asked to use electric vehicles.

“The private sector, whether it’s Blue Bird, Gojek, Grab, already wants to operate there,” he said.

Meanwhile, regarding flying taxis or drones carrying passengers, the Minister of Finance said that his party had not been able to find the right regulations.

“We call this regulation a developed country, America has not given formal permission,” he said.

Therefore, the Ministry of Transportation will not yet grant permission for flying taxis as a mode of transportation in IKN.

“There are risks if cities use drones. “Therefore, we have not given permission to fly taxis, for exhibitions, not for public transportation,” he said.

Previously regarding electric bus services, the Ministry of Transportation had carried out a technical planning study for public transportation at KIPP stage 1 by proposing 3 routes.

The three routes are Park & ​​Ride routes to the Grand Mosque with a total requirement of 13 medium buses.

Meanwhile, the Park & ​​Ride route to the Botanical Garden requires a total fleet of 7 medium buses, and the Park & ​​Ride 1 to Park & ​​Ride 2 route requires a total fleet of 21 buses.

Meanwhile, OIKN also plans to collaborate with Bluebird to serve routes within the IKN or KIPP phase 1 environment, in this case related to the procurement of electric buses and operational plans.

Then, for 2024 a Purchase of Service (BTS) budget is proposed to serve the IKN route.

Regarding the route plan, it will be adjusted to the plot of land that has been built, while the number of fleet requirements is still waiting for study and review from the OIKN team.

The Ministry will provide support related to transportation in commemoration of the 79th Indonesian Independence Day at IKN on 17 August 2024.
