Indonesian Bus Rapid Transit Corridor Development Project (INDOBUS)

Indonesian Bus Rapid Transit Corridor Development Project (INDOBUS) aims at providing technical advice on the development and implementation of the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system in Indonesian cities to bring it into line with international standards. The ultimate aim of this is to give the range of planned measures for the transport sector an even greater impact.

INDOBUS’ pilot cities, namely Pekanbaru, Batam, Bandung, Semarang and Makassar, have developed and implemented a BRT system that adheres to international standard.


INDOBUS supports selected Indonesian cities to develop BRT as the backbone for urban mass public transport and base for integrated urban transport systems through the planning and developing of BRT corridors with segregated lanes. In addition, INDOBUS strengthens public transport management in Indonesian pilot cities to comply with internationally recommended planning and service standards. Lastly, INDOBUS incorporates BRT corridors as the backbone of an urban mass public transport system into the national and sub-national urban transport policies.
