Driver And Mechanic Program
The DKI Jakarta administration is currently implementing the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) transportation system, the first system applied in the Southeast and South Asia, which offers the public transportation service that can carry more passengers. As public transportation, the role of the driver is vital, being the one who confronts and carrying passengers to the destination. For that reason, he is demanded to comply with prescribed procedures for safety and passenger comfort.
Besides the driver, the bus technician also plays key role in the safety and comfort, being the central factor for a bus being (fully) operational or not. The bus technician carries the duty to minimize troubles commonly afflicting the bus, such as fire, by conducting routine checks prior to operation.
PT United Tractors Tbk (UT), as the brand holder sole distributor (ATPM) of the articulated bus Scania in Indonesia, through its Technical Training Department, provides the after-sale support called the Driver & Technician Development Program to prepare the bus driver and the technician for doing the job well.
