Ladies and gentlemen.

Let me extend my appreciation for the launching of the environmentally friendly transportation in the Nusantara Capital (IKN) carried out by Blue Bird Group with the investment of Rp250 billion. The launching of the environmentally friendly transportation will accelerate the development of electricity-based public transportation system in the IKN. The development of the IKN, with the concept of forest city, will prioritize environmentally friendly technology, including green buildings, green energy, and green transportation.

The investment from Blue Bird Group will be allocated for the development of the environmentally friendly transportation system, the procurement of electric Bus Rapid Transit to support urban services, electricity taxis, electricity rental cars, and buses from Balikpapan to the IKN.

The Blue Bird Group will also develop integrated supporting facilities, using the advanced technology, including bus stops, Park and Ride, Transfer Point Depo, and Charging Point.

I applaud the commitment of the Blue Bird Group to support environmentally friendly transportation initiatives in the IKN to create a sustainable future for mobility and create cleaner and healthier environment.

By saying bismillahirrahmanirrahim, this afternoon I officially launch environmentally friendly transportation by Blue Bird Group in the Nusantara Capital.

I thank you.
Wassalamu’alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
