GovInsider: "“If ERP generates a good enough income I want buses to be free … for the whole city. This will improve the lives of Jakartans,” the Governor said, according to the Jakarta Globe.
The system will be entirely run by the city government. The Governor decided against working with the private sector so that all of the revenue goes to the city and can be used for public transport.
“Earlier we wanted to cooperate with private firms. But I decided not to share with the private sector so 100% [of the revenue] generated goes to the city and we can subsidise,” he said."
