Trans Jogja, Bus Rapid Transit Tanpa Separator Asli Kota Gudeg

first_imgSetelah sempat tertunda selama kurang lebih 3 tahun, akhirnya pada 18 Februari 2008, bus ini mulai dioperasikan , dengan masa uji coba selama 10 hari. Adapun waktu operasional dari bus ini adalah dari pukul 06.00 WIB hingga pukul 22.00 WIB, sedangkan untuk moda yang digunakan adalah bus berukuran sedang dengan 34 tempat duduk. Untuk menunjang pengoperasian dari bus Trans Jogja, terdapat 67 halte khusus untuk menunggu bus ini.Bus Trans Jogja menghubungkan 6 titik penting di DIY, yaitu Stasiun KA Yogyakarta, Terminal Bus Giwangan (pusat perhubungan jalur bus antar propinsi dan regional), Terminal Condong Catur, Terminal Regional Jombor, Bandara Adi Sucipto, dan terminal Prambanan. Selain itu, Anda juga dapat menjumpai halte-halte Trans Jogja di sekitaran lokasi objek wisata serta sarana publik, seperti sekolah, rumah sakit, kampus serta perpustakaan. Sungguh mirip dengan Trans Jakarta, bukan?Pada 15 Oktober 2010 silam, Dinas Perhubungan Komunikasi dan Informatika Provinsi DIY meluncurkan 2 rute baru yang menjangkau berbagai daerah yang belum dilalui oleh bus Trans Jogja, seperti Puro Pakualaman, UIN Sunan Kalijaga, Balaikota Yogyakarta, dan Stasiun Lempuyangan.Sumber: yogyakarta.panduanwisata.idAdapun beberapa hal sederhana yang membedakan antara Bus Trans Jogja dengan Bus TransJakarta terletak pada jalur serta haltenya. Bila Bus TransJakarta memiliki separator yang memisahkan antara bus dengan kendaraan konvensional lainnya, berbeda dengan Bus Trans Jakarta yang tidak memiliki separator, dengan kata lain bus ini berbaur dengan kendaraan pribadi maupun kendaraan umum lain. Ukuran halte Bus Trans Jogja juga lebih kecil daripada halte Bus TransJakarta.Untuk tarif dari Bus Trans Jogja juga bisa dibilang cukup murah, yaitu Rp4.000 untuk single trip serta ada sistem langganan yang tentu menawarkan harga yang lebih terjangkau daripada tiket single trip. Anda cukup melakukan pembelian perdana seharga Rp25.000 dan minimal isi ulang Rp15.000, Anda akan dikenakan tarif Rp2.700 per trip untuk umum, dan Rp2.000 per trip untuk pelajar dari SD hingga SMA.Baru-baru ini, para awak angkutan perkotaan merasa keberatan dengan penambahan rute baru dari bus Trans Jogja ini yang lebih banyak mengarah ke sebelah barat dan tengah kota Yogyakarta. Salah seorang kru angkutan perkotaan bahkan merasa amat keberatan dengan adanya penambahan 3 jalur Trans Jogja. “Jangankan 3, tambah 1 jalur saja dampaknya berat bagi kami. Saya tidak habis pikir, kasihan dengan teman-teman kru perkotaan, mereka butuh menghidupi anak istri,” tutur Benny, Koordinator Paguyuban Kru Bus Prekotaan se-DIY, dikutip dari laman Solopos.com, Minggu (2/4/2017).Menanggapi keluhan tersebut, Kabid Angkutan Darat Dishub DIY, Agus Harry Triono mengatakan keberadaan Trans Jogja sebenarnya bukan untuk “mematikan” bus perkotaan, tapi keduanya harus saling melengkapi guna melayani kebutuhan para penumpangnya. “Kami berharap bisa saling melengkapi antara Bus Trans Jogja ini dengan angkutan perkotaan,” tutur Agus seperti yang dilansir dari laman Solopos.com, Minggu (2/4/2017)Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… RelatedLebih Dulu dari BYD, Scania Kirim Bi-Articulated Bus ke Brasil08/04/2019In “Bus dalam kota”TransPakuan, Solusi Kemacetan Bogor yang Kurang Perhatian06/04/2017In “Bus dalam kota”Teknologi Low-Floor Mudahkan Penumpang Difabel Naik Bus31/08/2017In “Bus dalam kota” Sumber: yogyakarta.panduanwisata.id Apabila Jakarta memiliki TransJakarta, lain ceritanya dengan salah satu sarana transportasi asal kota Gudeg, Yogyakarta. Kota Pelajar ini juga memiliki sebuah sarana transportasi yang hampir mirip dengan Trans Jakarta, yaitu Trans Jogja. Bus ini merupakan salah satu bentuk penerapan Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) yang direncanakan oleh Departemen Perhubungan dan mulai dioperasikan pada bulan Maret 2008 di bawah pengawasan Departemen Perhubungan dan Pemerintah Provinsi DIY.Faktanya, bus Trans Jogja merupakan evolusi dari bus patas. BusTrans Jogja lahir sehubungan dengan munculnya Studi Kelayakan Angkutan Eksekutif pada tahun Anggaran 2004 di Dinas Perhubungan Provinsi DIY. Setahun berselang, bus Trans Jogja gagal diimplementasikan karena butuh studi mengenai kelayakan yang lebih komprehensif. Karena tidak ingin hal yang sama terulang kembali, maka pada tahun 2005, Dinas Perhubungan Provinsi DIY menyiapkan berbagai kegiatan yang dapat menunjang pengadaan dari bus Trans Jogja ini, seperti Studi Kelayakan Reformasi Sistem Transportasi Angkutan Umum Perkotaan, sosialisasi operasional dari bus Trans Jogja, hingga persiapan pembentukan badan pengelola bus Trans Jogja.Namun rencana pengadaan bus ini kembali gagal pada tahun 2006 karena gempa tektonik yang mengguncang Yogyakarta dengan kekuatan 6,2 skala richter. Pada tahun 2007, ada perkembangan yang cukup signifikan dari rencana pengadaan bus dengan jargon “Solusi Transportasi Perkotaan” ini, diantaranya brand-image baru yang diberikan oleh Gubernur DIY, terbentuknya wadah yang mengelola bus ini, yaitu Unit Pelaksana Teknis Dinas (UPTD), juga bantuan dari Ditjen Perhubungan Darat Departemen Perhubungan Indonesia berupa 10 unit bus yang turut digabungkan dalam pengoperasian bus Trans Jogja.last_img read more

Top regional golf champs cancelled

first_imgWith the growing concern around COVID-19 in the region, the Caribbean Golf Association (CGA) has followed in the footsteps of many other sporting associations and has cancelled the 2020 Caribbean Classic, Caribbean Amateur Junior Golf Championships, and the Caribbean Amateur Golf Championships.The CGA, in a letter through its president Sydney Wolf to its member associations on Monday, stated that the health, safety and well-being of the players, their families, volunteers and staff at the various championship venues were the top priority.Wolf said it was a tough yet necessary call to make based on what was happening around the region and the globe.“While the decision did not come easily, the CGA believed that it was the right call to make, and players who have already registered for the Caribbean Classic which was scheduled for the Dominican Republic in May will be refunded,” said Wolf.President of the Jamaica Golf Association, Peter Chin, told The Gleaner that the cancellation was understandable, with the Caribbean Amateur Championships scheduled for this summer.“With the uncertainty surrounding this pandemic, it was best to put off the tournaments. We don’t know when we will get through this and so safety first is paramount. I know it is going to be disappointing, especially for our juniors who were already selected to go the junior championships,” said Chin.With social-distancing protocols enforced across the island, several golf courses have scaled down their operations, allowing accessibility only on the weekends. In the meantime, the CGA has called on the golfing community to continue to take the necessary precautions relating to the avoidance of the COVID-19 virus and to remain safe. -L.A.last_img read more

2020 Concacaf U13 Champions League cancelled

first_imgScotiabank and the Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football (Concacaf) announced that the Concacaf Scotiabank Under-13 Champions League, set to be played in August in Toluca, Mexico, will not take place in 2020.The health and welfare of everyone involved in football is a priority for Concacaf and Scotiabank, and this decision has been made with that firmly in mind.Both organisations will continue monitoring and following the guidelines from governments and public health authorities and will jointly discuss potential football development activities for this age group, which could take place in the future.“Given the current public health situation, and the uncertainty about when it will be safe for youth sports to resume, Concacaf and Scotiabank have decided that the Concacaf Scotiabank Under-13 Champions League will not take place in 2020,” said Concacaf General Secretary Philippe Moggio. “Since 2014, this event has become an important development platform that fosters talent, while promoting the values of respect, teamwork, inclusion and passion for the game. We look forward to delivering this tournament next year and welcoming youth teams from across the region to this competitive and international competition.” YOUNGEST AGE TOURNAMENT The Concacaf Scotiabank Under-13 Champions League (SCCLU13), which is the confederation’s youngest age tournament, has been hosted in collaboration with the member associations of Concacaf, including the Mexican Football Federation (FMF). The competition features 11 participating countries from the region, including Canada, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Jamaica, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Trinidad & Tobago and the United States. “Throughout this pandemic, the health and safety of our employees, customers and communities have been central to all of our decision-making at Scotiabank. We have been a proud supporter of the U-13 Champions League for five years, and we hope that hosting this event in 2021 will put us in a better position to take care of our youth and our communities,” said Mike Tasevski, vice-president of global sponsorships at Scotiabank. “We appreciate the patience and collaboration of all the participants and partners involved in this important competition,” Tasevski added. The sixth edition will be held from August 7-14, 2021, at the FMF headquarters in Toluca, Mexico. The play-offs will resume in 2021, considering the Under-13 is an age-based tournament, to preserve the players’ sporting merit. Given the ongoing uncertainty about when football can resume in our region, the confederation has also made the decision to suspend the 2020 Concacaf Girls’ Under-15 Championship and 2020 Concacaf Men’s Under-17 qualifiers. The three youth competitions were originally set to take place in August 2020.last_img read more

PNGRFL and PHA sign K10m deal

first_imgThe PNG Rugby Football League and PNG Health Assurance yesterday signed a K10 million contract as major sponsors of the PNG LNG Kumuls for the next five years. Specialist adviser to PHA Raj Juta told a media conference in Port Moresby yesterday. “PHA is delighted to announce this landmark five-year sponsorship with the PNGRFL as platinum sponsors of the PNG LNG Kumuls this year,” he said. “PHA will become naming rights sponsors of the PNG Kumuls starting next year 2020 when they will be known as PHA Kumuls until 2023.” Juta also said that PHA’s partnership with PNGRFL for personal accident protection cover to all registered players and officials including referees and employees. “Providing protection to rugby league players through a personal insurance cover is a very important step in promoting the sport not only in PNG but also to rugby league enthusiasts around the world,” he said. “This will encourage more players to be competitive and further develop the national sport at both the elite and grassroots levels.” He said the sponsorship is part of PHA’s ongoing commitment to the people of PNG by providing insurance protection focusing on quality, affordable and accessible healthcare and personal accident insurance. PNGRFL chairman Sandis Tsaka said the K10 million contract signing reaffirms the memorandum of agreement both parties signed last month. He said the contract will cater for the Team Kumul programs across the country. “The kids to Kumuls program will benefit from this sponsorship,” Tsaka said. He said as platinum sponsors this year PHA will have their logo on the back of the PNG Kumuls jumper. “Starting next year in 2020, the national team will be known as the PHA Kumuls until 2023 with option to renew.” He said the PHA as major sponsors of the PNG Kumuls is a milestone and is a huge boost as we prepare our best team for the Rugby League World Cup in 2021 in England. “PNG Health Assurance’s partnership with PNGRFL will provide insurance cover for all registered players, officials including referees and employees of PNGRFL,” Tsaka said. He said K20 of the registration fees collected from players and officials will be paid to PHA as insurance premiums. Tsaka said the insurance cover ranges from any form of injuries/ disability to death. “These injuries, deaths (hopefully don’t happen) and other accidents are covered while playing or officiating at games and/or on duty for any PNGRFL event and function,” he said. He said this partnership will start this year and end in 2020 with options to renew. “We are elated that an insurance company for the first time has come on board to partner with the PNGRFL and cover this very important aspect of players, officials and employees welfare,” Tsaka said. He said that Raj Juta has been invited to attend the annual general meeting in Lae next week to address all affiliated presidents on the importance of insurance cover and the benefits of the K20 premium to be paid to PNGRFL. PNGRFL CEO Reatau Rau said the signing of the both contracts was timely. “There are three international test matches scheduled for the Kumuls this year and their support as major sponsors is greatly appreciated to prepare our national team as best as we can,” Rau said. He said the PHA partnership with the PNG Kumuls came as a result of the APEC meeting held in Port Moresby last November. He said the consultation with PHA started during the APEC CEOs meeting and this partnership can be seen as a benefit of APEC to the sport of rugby league and people of PNG. He said the contract for the Group Personal Accident Insurance cover was vital and relevant to the PNGRFL. “This will cover all the six tiers in our structure from the six year old to players in the Digicel Cup and Confederates as well as the Kumuls and Orchids,” he said. “We are grateful PHA has become a partner to handle all these insurance matters and claims professionally and legally.”last_img read more

Porto close to snatching young talent from West Ham – Hammers…

first_imgWest Ham United youngster Benicio Baker-Boaitey should be leaving the club in this transfer window, according to claims from Portugal. Newspaper O Jogo reports that the winger is on his way to Porto, where he’ll reinforce the Dragons’ U19 squad.The outlet claims that the process for his signing is ‘very well forwarded’ and should be completed in the coming days.It’s pointed out that the talent shown by Baker-Boaitey in West Ham’s youth ranks has been encouraging attention from several sides, and that’s why he’s been linked to the likes of Barcelona and RB Leipzig.The winger turned 16 years of age this year, and even made three appearances in the U18 Premier League. He also made his debut for England’s U16 squad this season.The reason he’s leaving England isn’t made clear by O Jogo, although he was probably promised more chances with Porto’s first team as soon as he gets to the right age.Following an example of Marcus Edwards, who left Tottenham to do well at Vitória Guimarães this season, this shouldn’t be a bad idea.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayInvest With VICShe collects rental-like income every month!
