According to him, the small number of two-wheeled vehicles on the first milir flow at Panjang Port could be caused by several factors, one of which is information that has not been thoroughly conveyed to the public.
“So that tomorrow we, with related parties and also the local government, will try to socialize it to the public so they can take advantage of the Panjang Port for crossings to Java Island.

Meanwhile, the Head of the Lampung Provincial Transportation Service, Bambang Sumbogo, said that at first the flow of two-wheeled vehicles at Panjang Port did look quiet and few.
“On this first day, there are indeed quite a few voters. In addition to the factors mentioned by KSOP, it is also possible that some of them have returned to Java beforehand. On Wednesday (26/4) many have also crossed to Java via Bakauheni,” he said.

He also hopes that voters who have not yet traveled back to Java Island can take advantage of the Panjang Port as an alternative crossing.
“Especially those from Bandarlampung, Pesawaran, Natar, and so on, you can go to Panjang Port to cross it, but for those heading east, of course we also recommend using Bakauheni Port because it is closer to the location,” he said.
