Considering the transportation problems in large metropolitan areas increasingly severe. The government only gives technical assistance, provision of bus stops and the addition has not been able to solve the problem of public transport quickly. instead the government does not have the funds but rather the lack of seriousness and commitment. If the subsidy is fuel oil (BBM) of about Rp 150 trillion last year spent to revitalize urban bus-based public transport, he considered, that’s enough.
In the effort development and repairing in transportation sector is need to mix government hand. Because many matters existence can’t be extradited to private side, like urban planning rules, and the development that need big fund. So, government part is very influential towards transportation sector growth. But how that part influence, visible from expenditure that done bu government for this sector.
