Jakarta (ANTARA) - The government has prioritized public transportation to support people's mobility in the development of Nusantara, according to an official at the Nusantara Capital City Authority (OIKN) on Saturday.

"We aim to ensure that 80 percent of people's mobility in the city will be through public transport," said Silvia Halim, OIKN Deputy for Facilities and Infrastructure.

By doing so, OIKN seeks to achieve efficiency and create equality in mobility for all people in the future capital city, currently under construction in East Kalimantan, she added.

In an effort to actualize its commitment to making Nusantara a liveable, inclusive, and sustainable "World City for All", the authority has continued to strengthen its determination to realize a vision of sustainable development.

OIKN Head Bambang Susantono has conveyed strategic steps to transform the transportation system in Nusantara, including the establishment of an expert team to assist the OIKN in developing a transportation system in the new capital city.

OIKN formed the team by enlisting experts from diverse fields, demonstrating the government's commitment to collaborating with stakeholders in planning and developing Nusantara.

The team is expected to help the government achieve transportation targets outlined in a master plan that formulates ideal development policies and transportation management while considering economic, social, and environmental aspects.

The team's head, William Sabandar, said that his team is guided by a set of key performance indicators, including access to key facilities, efficient transit connections, and carbon emission reduction.
