Lack of sustainable urban transport implementation is an important problem in most cities in Indonesia including Semarang. Based on the survey on 2017, public transport only served 20% of total transportation demand. The city government commits to improve integrated public transport service by a BRT system as reflected in its City Mid-Term Development Plan (RPJMD).

Funded by Green Climate Fund (GCF) and in collaboration with Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) Indonesia in the framework of Sustainable Urban Transport Programme Indonesia (SUTRI NAMA) and Indonesian Bus Rapid Transit Corridor Development Project (INDOBUS), PT SMI is implementing the project preparation phase for development of integrated sustainable Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system in Semarang. The project aims to develop the infrastructure for BRT system and integration with other transportation system including non-motorized transport.
In the project preparation phase, PT SMI assist Semarang to develop feasibility study for the implementation of full BRT system in Semarang, which includes not only the infrastructure but also intelligent transportation system, fare collecting system as well non-motorized transport improvement. The output of the project preparation is a good quality studies which will be ready to be taken into implementation phase.
