Minister of Transportation (Menhub) Budi Karya Sumadi mentioned the budget details consisted of Rp35 billion for land transportation, Rp25 billion for rail transport, and Rp10 trillion for sea transportation.

"Rp35 billion for land, Rp20 billion railway, and sea Rp10 billion," said Budi in his press conference in Jakarta, Friday (13/4/2018).

He continued, until now the budget absorption is already quite large. The mode of land transportation has absorbed about 50 percent, the sea transportation mode has absorbed about 30 to 40 percent, and the train mode has reached 100 percent.

The absorption of train budgets is faster because the government continues to encourage travelers to use mass transportation mode. Travelers who used to use the motor, it is recommended to send the bike first by train.

"KA is almost 100 percent because it's motor, the land is more than 50 percent, marine 30-40 percent," he called.

Budi continued, Kemenhub has also opened a registration post for free trip to various modes of transportation. "We also open (post free homecoming) in some places and open also below," he concluded
