The introduction of a bus rapid transit (BRT) system, following the example of Jakarta, is being planned in five Indonesian cities. Feasibility studies have been carried out, and a financing agreement has been confirmed for Bandung. The BRT is expected to improve access to transport while reducing congestion, energy costs, and exposure to air pollution. We will estimate the socio-economic and environmental benefits of the implementation of BRT in five cities and will assess their contribution to the national Net Zero plan.
We will finally assess if the project will pay for itself, and whether loans may be required for scaling up BRT countrywide, and to what extent.
