Jakarta (medialnews) – The manager of the Lebak Bulus bus terminal in South Jakarta saw a 115% increase in the number of travelers from around 200 people on weekdays to 431 people on Sundays (2/5) or three days before the ban on returning home.

“The peak appears to be last Saturday Sunday. Now it’s starting to go up,” the head of the Lebak Bulus bus terminal executive unit, Hernanto, told Lebak Bulus on Tuesday.

He noted that on Saturday (1/5) and Sunday (3/5) there were only departing passengers and no disembarking passengers during the tightening of the return period.

Hernanto detailed on Saturday (1/5) the number of travelers who left reached 375 people served by 50 buses to several cities in Java. Meanwhile, Sunday (2/5) 65 buses were served by 431 departing passengers.

On Tuesday (4/5) the terminal, also known as Lintas Pasar Friday Terminal, was still visited by a number of travelers, but not as much as on weekends.

Previously, Hernanto explained that the Lebak Bulus bus station during the ban on going home will close from May 6 to 17, 2021.

He will install “barrier gate“or” traffic cone “(barrier) at the entrance and exit of the terminal at Jalan Ciputat Raya, Lebak Bulus.

Previously, the government, through the COVID-19 Management Working Group, released the latest additional regulations contained in the Addendum to Circular Letter 13 of 2021.

The addendum is linked to the elimination of Idul Fitri 1442 Hijriah’s homecoming and efforts to control the spread of COVID-19 during the holy month of Ramadan 2021.

The government is banning return transportation services for all modes of transportation from May 6 to 17, 2021.
Before returning home, the government imposed austerity on travelers from April 22 to May 5, 2021 and from May 18 to 24, 2021.
