Before Looking for Bus Tickets for Travel, Check the Latest Restrictions and Guidelines Below!
Transportation services are an important need of the community. Public transportation in the form of buses is the main choice for Indonesian people. The reason is that buses have a wide range of bus types and ticket prices are very affordable.

It is just that you need to remember that the pandemic is not over yet. Therefore, the government issued a new regulation to suppress the number of COVID-19 cases in the country. Before starting your journey and booking your bus ticket, make sure you keep the following points in mind.
- Based on Circular Letter Number 12 of 2021 concerning Travel Provisions for Domestic travel during the COVID-19 Pandemic, the government has limited travel activities outside the city or province. This restriction applies not only to people travelling by private vehicles but also to public transportation.
- The above points are also confirmed by the Instruction of the Minister of Home Affairs No. 15 of 2021 concerning the Implementation of Emergency Community Activity Restrictions (PPKM) in Java and Bali.
- Long-distance transportation services using public or private vehicles are still allowed to operate. However, there is a limit of 70% maximum occupancy capacity accompanied by strict health procedures.
- Especially for urgent conditions such as official travel, medical treatment, and visiting family members, the individual concerned is allowed to travel under certain conditions.
- People who need to travel for out of town work are required to bring a letter of assignment from the head of the workplace. Meanwhile, people who will seek treatment or visit sick/deceased family members need to carry a special permit.
- People who travel long distances, whether using public or private transportation, are required to show a vaccine card. Bus and train users are required to attach a rapid antigen test result of at least H-1. Meanwhile, flight passengers must show the results of the H-2 PCR test.
- Provisions related to show vaccine cards, PCR, and rapid antigens do not apply to passenger children under the age of 18 years.
- Passengers are also required to present the Peduli Protect application at every departure checkpoint.
- Every passenger is required to apply health protocols and equip themselves with hand sanitisers, wet wipes, and spare masks. To avoid crowds, take advantage of the online bus ticket booking services available. Much more practical and safer.
