REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, JAKARTA -- The State Enterprises Ministry is organizing a free-ride homecoming program, which involves 25 state-owned companies, to transport 122,362 home-bound travelers during the Eid ul-Fitr homecoming period. 

Through the free homecoming program called "Mudik Bareng BUMN 2017," 1,810 buses, 11 trains with 85 coaches, 18 ships, and 24 planes will be made available to transport the home-bound Eid ul-Fitr travelers to different cities in Sumatra, Java, Kalimantan, Sulawesi, and Papua Devy W Suradji, member of the state enterprises minister's special staff, said here on Tuesday.

State Enterprises Minister Rini Soemarno is scheduled to bid farewell to a train carrying Eid ul-Fitr holidaymakers at Pasar Senen station in Central Jakarta on June 16.

She will later see off home-bound travelers aboard 402 buses at the Indonesia miniature park (TMII) in East Jakarta on June 19, which is the peak of free-ride homecoming period this year. 

"The program, called Mudik Bersama BUMN 2017, reflects the commitment of state-owned companies "to be present for the state." The free homecoming program is the third of its kind. The number of participants in the program also increased from 92,014 in 2016 to 112,362 in 2017," she stated. 

The 25 state-owned companies include Jasa Raharja, Aneka Tambang, Pelindo I, Pelindo II, Pelindo III, Pelindo IV, ASDP Indonesia Ferry, Askrindo, Pertamina, Bank Mandiri, PGN, PLN, Bank BRI, Bank BTN, Semen Indonesia, Biro Klasifikasi Indonesia, Taspen, Brantas Abipraya, Telkom Indonesia, Bukit Asam, Timah, Jasa Marga, and Wijaya Karya.

The free-ride homecoming program is aimed at encouraging motorcyclists to switch to buses and trains as part of the efforts to reduce the number of road accidents, which mostly happen to motorcyclists during the homecoming period.
