Just like in the previous years, Ministry of State-Owned Enterprises has announced it will provide free mudik (annual exodus) trip program ahead of this year’s Eid Day.

“Minister of SOEs Rini Soemarno has ordered to facilitate at least 250,000 mudik travelers,” Director of state-owned insurance company Jasa Raharja Budi Rahardjo said at a press conference in Jakarta, Tuesday (7/5).

According to Budi, target of the participants of the program – which goes by the name of BUMN Mudik Bareng – ,has been increased by 22.2 percent compared to the number of participants in the previous year at 204,146 travelers.

“The trips will begin from 56 departure cities (22 cities on Java and 34 cities outside Java) to 136 destination cities (57 cities on Java and 79 cities outside Java),” Budi said.

As many as 104 state-owned enterprises will be in collaboration to carry out the program this year and they will provide 3,897 buses, 138 ships, 49 trains, and 76 airplanes. Last year only 64 SOEs joined the program.  (ANT/ES)
