Bandung Tour On Bus (Bandros)

The streets of Bandung will now be more lively and passionate. The city’s government, in cooperation with a big Indonesian company through its CSR programs, will provide free bus tour services for visitors to  Bandung. Anyone visiting the city will be invited to welcome the presence of the bus service, christened as Bandros (Bandung Tour on Bus).

Tour Bus

The name “Bandros” itself is unique for the city of Bandung. Bandros is actually a type of snack original of the region. It is a baked cake made โ€‹โ€‹of rice flour and grated coconut with a pinch of salt. It is an utterly delicious finger food, especially when accompanied by a cup of hot tea. The so-naming of the bus service only adds to the enjoyable characteristic known as typical to the city.

The titular “Bandros” is basically a vintage two-storeyed bus painted in flaming red, easily recognizable during the day and the night. It is modeled after the famous double-decker bus of the city of London with open deck on top.

Vintage Bus

Designed for a maximum of 30 passengers, the bus is scheduled to depart from the Cikapundung street at the heart of the city. The bus will pass the Dago area, where the Sheraton Bandung Hotel & Towers is located. The service would especially cater for foreign and domestic tourists.

The double-decker bus is the first of its kind in Bandung. It was initially launched during the “Car Free Night” event on the New Year's Eve of 1 January 2014. If everything goes as planned, the bus will start operating in April 2014.

Top Of The Bus

Any visitors to the city are only required to show a shopping receipt during their stay in Bandung to enjoy the ride with Bandros for free. Fun is indeed guaranteed.
