    Bali’s Public Bus System in Decline?


    Long criticized for its lack of popularity among commuter in Bali, high cost, and inefficiency, major steps are underway to evaluate and reposition Bali’s Trans Sabargita Bus System.

    Jawapos.com reports that both the budget allocations for the system and the number of vehicles in operation are likely to be revamped early in 2018.

    Trans Sarbagita will reportedly park its fleet of 25 large 55-passenger buses, replacing these vehicles with 10 medium-sized 35-passenger buses.

    A provincial subsidy of Rp. 17 billion will be reduced to Rp. 6 billion.

    A full review of the Trans Sarbagita system will be done in early January 2018.

    The hours of operation for the Bali Bus system are also set to be changed. The system formerly operated from 6:00 am – 8:00 pm will now operate from 5:00 am until 9:00 pm.

    A Provincial transportation official said the fleet of 10 smaller, medium-sized buses have been delivered to Bali and  are nowready to commence service.

    5 of these buses will be dedicated to serving corridor II from Batu Bulan to Nusa Dua. The remaining 5 new buses will travel on corridor I between downtown Denpasar to the GWK monument. Corridor I will now terminate at the Udayana University campus.

    Bali Police’s Narcotics Investigative Unit, working along the with counter transnational and organized crime (CTOC) task force, arrested a woman suspected of involvement in an East Java prison drug trading network on Thursday night in Kuta.

    Identified in reports as Balinese woman Ni Luh Putu Mega Karisma, 25, the woman had allegedly been hiding half a kilo of meth in a stuffed monkey toy, police said.

    Bali Police spokesman Hengky Widjaja said that there were a total of six packages of meth stuffed inside the toy.

    “The evidence was secured in the form of six clear plastic bags, allegedly methamphetamine with a gross weight of 605.4 grams, net weight of 592.92 grams,” Widjaja said before reporters on Friday, as quoted by Tribun Bali.

    From the arrest of the woman with the “meth monkey,” police were able to catch another man they say is connected to the East Java prison drug network, identified by initials RA, 27, who was arrested the same evening, at 9:30pm at his boardinghouse in South Kuta.

    “Inside the second suspect’s boardinghouse, we found a bong, four bundles, scales, an ATM card, and a mobile phone,” Widjaja said.

    Karisma and RA had been active in a drug dealing network from Madiun Prison in East Java, according to Widjaja.

    “The two perpetrators are currently being examined at Bali Police headquarters,” the police spokesman said.

    Two other drug suspects, allegedly related to Karisma and RA were arrested on Thursday night in Denpasar.

    Dedik Supramono, 32, and Edwin Ardiansyah, 27, were arrested with 124.46 grams of meth in—not as exciting as a stuff monkey—a black plastic bag.
