The company managing Borobudur temple, PT Taman Wisata Candi Borobudur, has organized vehicles to shuttle tourists between Pabelan and Borobudur to help tourists circumvent the unsafe Pabelan Bridge.
Pabelan Bridge in Magelang, Central Java, became unstable after being hit by the cold lava flow, disrupting travel from Yogyakarta to Borobudur temple.
“The pickup vehicles are to demonstrate our appreciation and commitment to providing better services to visitors,” chief director of the company, Purnomo Siswoprasetjo, said.
Purnomo said the company had organized a 14-seat and a 40-seat bus and five cars with six to seven seats.
“The shuttle service will start operating today (April 1) from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.,” he said as reported by kompas.com.
He added that only tourists traveling with tour agencies could use the shuttle service for now.
“We will apply a similar system for local tourists, but this is still at the brain-storming stage,” he said.
