Ali Yusuf, Jakarta – The thousands of demonstrators rallying at the House of Representatives (DPR) in Jakarta have begun to disburse.
They are being directed to get on to light-blue Transjakarta buses. The public buses owned operated by the Jakarta regional government will deliver the protesters to their respective areas throughout the Greater Jakarta area (Jabodetabek) for free.
“Come on, mind your step, all aboard”, said Tactical Police Unit officers [under the command of] Deputy Police of Commissioner Wiharto as they directed the demonstrators to board busses on the morning of Saturday November 5.
The busses won’t just transport them to all parts of Jabodetabek, but will also take them to areas beyond Jabodetabek such as the West Java cities of Bandung, Tasik[malaya], Sukabumi, Cianjur, Garut and other areas.
“It’s totally free, including toll road fees”, Central Jakarta district police deputy chief of operations Assistant Superintendent Triyulianto told Republika.co.
