PO Pahala Kencana Bus Ticket Booking
PO Pahala Kencana is known as one of the leading autobus companies in Indonesia, which is evident from the four-star award for the category of inter-provincial inter-city non-economic buses received in 2017 from the Ministry of Transportation.
The company was founded in 1976 by Mr Hendro Tedjokusumo serving two routes, namely Kudus-Jakarta and Solo-Jakarta PP. Increasingly growing its business, PO Pahala Kencana expanded and began new routes to cover many areas until it became one of the largest autobus companies in Indonesia. In 1993, Pahala Kencana developed a cargo business called Pahala Express and a travel agent called PT Pahala Tours & Travel. Seven years after that, Pahala Kencana launched Nirwana Luxury Tourist Bus as a bus and vehicle loan service. In the same year, Hendro Tedjokusumo moved the PO Pahala Kencana head office to Kelapa Gading, North Jakarta.
Pahala Kencana now serves 86 routes in more than 90 cities in Indonesia, including on the islands of Bali, Madura, and Sumatra.
