Improving Cleanliness and Services for Eid Travelers in Bali’s Mengwi Terminal



The management of Mengwi Type A Terminal in Badung regency, Bali, is implementing measures to uphold cleanliness, particularly in the waiting areas, to offer comfort to Eid travelers in 2024.

Ardani Nirwesti, the Supervisor of Mengwi Type A Terminal, has announced an increase in the frequency of cleaning from once a day to every two hours. This decision is aimed at guaranteeing regular sanitation and maintenance of the terminal to provide convenience for travelers during the festive season.

In order to reinforce their environmental cleanliness initiatives, the terminal management has forged partnerships with private organizations. Specific areas within the terminal, including the waiting lounge, toilet facilities, and the terminal surroundings, are now receiving special attention to uphold high cleanliness standards.

In addition to cleanliness, the terminal also provides supplementary amenities for travelers such as ATMs and a canteen. These facilities are intended to offer convenience for travelers who may need cash or food, particularly during the time for breaking their fast.

Furthermore, the terminal management has collaborated with the Badung Police to offer general health check-ups for drivers. This includes monitoring their blood pressure, overall health condition, and conducting urine tests for drug screening. Additionally, the drivers are being supplied with vitamin C supplements to ensure their health and well-being while performing their duties during Eid 2024.

The terminal has also established a post to assist Eid travelers in cooperation with various government agencies. This post provides traveler information services and records traffic data, which will be available from April 3 to 18, 2024.

According to statistics from Mengwi Type A Terminal, the exodus of Eid travelers has been observed since March 29, 2024. At present, the average daily number of travelers from the terminal is approximately 2,000 individuals, transported by 70-80 buses. This represents a significant increase compared to the typical daily average of 700-800 passengers and 50 buses on regular days.

The peak of the exodus is anticipated to occur on Saturday, April 6, 2024, while the return rush is projected to take place on April 13-14, 2024. The most popular routes from the terminal are to various cities in East Java such as Jember, Banyuwangi, Surabaya, Malang, and Yogyakarta, as well as several cities in Central Java.

Some travelers have opted to depart on weekdays to evade the peak rush of travelers, believing that traveling on weekdays allows for a more relaxed and less crowded journey.

In conclusion, the efforts undertaken by the terminal management to enhance cleanliness and services are praiseworthy. With the growing number of travelers during Eid 2024, these initiatives are vital to ensure a safe and pleasant travel experience for all. This collaborative approach between the terminal management, private sector, and government agencies sets a positive example for other transportation hubs in the region.
