TransJakarta has announced plans to deploy around 1,000 electric buses (e-buses) in Jakarta, Indonesia by 2023 to offset carbon emissions from public transport. By 2025, the company plans to increase this number to 3,000 e-buses.
As of July 2022, the company operates 30 e-buses in the city and will deploy 70 additional vehicles by the end of the year. Most of the existing buses operate on the Senen-Blok M route and Blok M-Tanah Abang route.
This move is in line with the Government of Indonesia’s Acceleration of Electrically Motorised Battery-Powered Vehicle for Public Transport Program. By 2030, all public transport buses in Jakarta will be converted into electric vehicles in line with the government’s transport master plan.
