Key City Development Issues

Denpasar ranks as the 6th worst city in Indonesia for traffic congestion. The key policy of the central government was to increase the share of public transport journeys from an average of 23% to 32% by 2019. A further priority of the central government was the implementation of traffic restriction schemes as a means of improving the safety and functionality of the country’s urban road network.

Details of Cooperation

CDIA-supported activities include the following: a) development of an achievable 5-year Public Transit Strategy for establishing an efficient, attractive, safe, and high-quality feeder bus system that is integrated with the regional SARBAGITA bus system; b) design and implementation of a pilot local school bus program for selected routes; c) Assistance in improving the institutional and human capacity in terms of planning, implementation, coordination, and management of the transit strategy; and d) development and support to the implementation of quick interventions, including procurement and management of public transport services.

Expected Development Outcomes

Upon implementation, the planned projects are expected to improve the transport service for individuals, particularly residents of slum areas who do not have ready access to private vehicles. The school bus system will likewise provide a safer mode of transport for children, hence, reducing the likelihood of vehicle accidents involving children. Through reinvigoration of demand for public transport services complemented with upskilling of angkot drivers for new fleet, the livelihood of low-income earners are set to improve. In the long run, the interventions are expected to decrease greenhouse gas emissions and reduce the level of pollution in Denpasar, with fewer motorists on public roads and increased usage of public transportation.
