An Overview of KMP. Gorare Route Tanjung Ru-Sadai Belitung, Bangka Belitung Province


Belitung Regency is one of the regencies in Indonesia’s Bangka Belitung Province where river crossing transportation plays a vital role in transportation activities and the region’s economy. The Gorare Ferry Motor Boat is a ro-ro type motor boat serving the Tanjung Ru-Sadai route. This form of transportation is expected to be able to stimulate economic growth in the region’s more remote areas, and the government is therefore providing subsidies to support the programme. Based on productivity data from 2010 to 2013, there was a significant increase in passenger volumes and vehicle productivity. However, the pricing rate does not cover the operating costs of the ship. This study seeks to ascertain when the service will reach breakeven and no longer require subsidies.
