    I think having public transport around Denpasar and surrounding districts would be excellent, even the tourist would use it.

    It would be wonderful to have a Public transportation system in Bali both environmentally and personal benefit for Balinese. People would love to use them if they are punctual, frequent and a bit faster than Bimos. Adding to that, if there are any public tourist vehicles on selected days to the most common tourist places it would be great.
