Bus Makmur is the brother of Bus Halmahera which is a PO Bus from Medan. Both of them serve land transportation trips.
The Makmur Medan bus travels from North Sumatra, to be precise from Medan to several provinces on the island of Sumatra itself.
Makmur buses use engines from Mercedes Benz O500R or OH 1836 which are now also used by many other bus fleets in Indonesia.
The product is indeed very stubborn and durable because it is included in the latest product category.
Each car body is competing to show its best work compared to the Mercedes Benz OH 1836 chassis, such as the Adi Putro Malang body.

76. NPM V2
Do you know which bus company (PO) is the oldest in Indonesia? The answer is Naikilah Perusahaan Minang or better known by the abbreviation name NPM.
This transportation service company was founded since the Dutch colonial era in 1937 by Bahauddin Sutan Barbangso Nan Kuniang. The beginning of his business was from a bendi or gig.
However, along with the times when automotive companies entered Indonesia, Bahauddin founded the bus transportation company NPM with his colleagues.
The family company based in Padang Panjang City, West Sumatra is now managed by the third generation under the management of Angga Vircansa Chairul.
In the early days, PO NPM only served a few routes within the province of West Sumatra. Several decades later it developed by opening routes to various cities on the island of Sumatra.
In the 1980s, PO NPM began to travel to the island of Java. From West Sumatra, PO NPM started departures to various majors on the island of Java from several cities, such as Padang, Bukittinggi, Pariaman, Payakumbuh, and others.
At its peak, in the 1900s to early 2000 the PO NPM route network stretched from Medan, Pekanbaru, Dumai, Jambi, Bengkulu, Palembang, and Bandar Lampung on the island of Sumatra, to Jakarta, Bogor, Depok, Bekasi, and Bandung in Java Island.
NPM also serves the main route in West Sumatra, namely Padang – Bukit Tinggi.
Entering the 2000s, all bus POs faced a big challenge. The decline in long-distance bus passenger transportation is due to various factors, such as cheap airline tickets, the ease of getting a private car through credit, and the rise of travel companies that use small cars. This causes many large bus fleets such as PO NPM to be unemployed and cause losses.
In early 2020, PO NPM in collaboration with PO Haryanto and PO Sumber Alam facilitated passengers who would go to Central Java, Yogyakarta and East Java via a ticket.
PO NPM passengers from Sumatra island heading to northern Central Java and East Java will later be transferred to PO Haryanto bus, while passengers heading to Yogyakarta and southern Central Java will be transferred to PO Sumber Alam and vice versa.
