Jakarta (ANTARA) - Organizers of the 2023 Transport Ticketing Global Awards in the UK named DKI Jakarta's BUMD subsidiary, PT JakLingko Indonesia as a finalist in the "Most Innovative Customer Serving Operator" category for the integration tariff program in the capital city.
"We hope that the implementation of integrated tariffs will provide great benefits for transportation users in Jakarta. It turns out that this program has also been highlighted and appreciated internationally and has entered the 'Most Innovative Customer Serving Operator' category," said PT JakLingko Indonesia President Director Muhamad Kamaluddin in an official statement in Jakarta, Monday.
He admitted that this gave him pride, especially in this international event because it was a new achievement for JakLingko Indonesia to continue to improve service innovation for the community. He also explained that PT JakLingko Indonesia is committed to contributing to increasing the number of public transport users in Jakarta.
