TEMPO.CO, Depok - Depok City Transportation Agency Head Dadang Wihana announced that the operation of intercity and interprovincial (AKAP) buses and intercity intra-provincial (AKDP) buses in Jatijajar Terminal will be suspended from May 6 to 17, 2021.
"This is decided during a meeting of Greater Jakarta Transportation Management Agency (BPJT) as a follow-up to the central government's ban on Eid homecoming," said Dadang in Depok, Thursday, April 1, 2021.
He appealed to the public not to leave the city or return to their hometown before and after the ban period given that the Covid-19 pandemic is not yet contained to date.
"The policy is exempted for people who are in an urgent situation. AKAP and AKDP bus service will still be provided in Pulo Gebang Terminal," Dadang said.
The regional agency, he went on, is still waiting for the technical regulation on the homecoming ban from the central government, including the policy on checkpoints.
"I hope Depok residents can understand this condition because this is for the common good in controlling the transmission of Covid-19," he said.
Depok Deputy Mayor Imam Budi Hartono also called on the public, especially Depok residents, to comply with the central government’s regulations on the Eid homecoming ban from May 6 to 17, 2021.
