Beware WIth PPD P 157

If you are in Jakarta right now and use regular buses please always be careful with your bags, wallet and so on. It has been a while since I used regular bus and a pickpocket succesfully took my wallet without me knowing it...

Don't expect another passenger will help you as they naturally worry they will be the next target. Especially if they are using the bus daily.

Watch it for this bus PPD P 157. If you wish to see the route you may refer to this link. Unfortunately is in bahasa Indonesia.

You may be friendly with other passengers but don't let your guard down. If your bag has zipper make sure the bag never lost your sight. If you are wearing backpack maybe you should put it in front of you. They can use cutter to open your bag and take whatever they can have.

Enjoy Jakarta but always be careful!

E-ticketing Started 1 November 2014

Quoting from TEMPO, starting from 1st of November , get ready to have at least one prepaid card if you are planning to use busway as your daily transportation.

I am also quoting from Jakarta Globe, that  The bus operator will implement the payment system at nine corridors — corridor VIII (Harmoni-Lebak Bulus route) and corridor IX (Pinang Ranti-Pluit) on Nov. 1; corridor II (Harmoni-Pulo Gadung route) and corridor III (Harmoni-Kalideres) on Nov. 22; corridor V (Ancol-Kampung Melayu) and corridor VII (Kamung Rambutan-Kampung Melayu) on Nov. 29; and corridor X (Tanjung Priok-Cililitan), corridor XI (Kampung Melayu-East Jakarta mayor’s office) and corridor XII (Pluit-Tanjung Priok) on Dec. 13.

Hopefully this information will be useful. If you wish to know a bit about e-ticket  you can read it here

Get Ready For Traffic Jam on 20th Of October

You may refer to this site to find out more about our president's inauguration :)


President's inauguration will be held on 20th of October 2014. For all of you here in Jakarta, get ready for heavy traffic jam on that day. Especially those around National Monument. There will be celebration for the people by the people and from the people. Why oh why they have to do it on MONDAY? When many of us have to go to work. Though I am totally happy with this celebration, I have to prepare alternate route for me to go home.

So, let's pray for a NATIONAL HOLIDAY on 20th of October 2014 so, we can relax and enjoy the celebration....at home.

Unfortunately I only have the run down in Indonesian.

Prohibition on Commuter Line

br />

Once a while I used train aka commuter line during the weekend. To tell you the truth, getting on the train is another transportation torture. As both of them takes forever before finally arrived at the station or bus stop. Though of course, train takes shorter time compare with busway.

E-Ticket for Busway and Commuter Line


As you probably aware, from my previous post here , there will be several busway stops that going to use E-ticket instead of selling ticket manually.

Though E-ticket using Flazz Card and others are now can be used for both busway and commuter line, there is something that you need to know.

If you are using a totally new card for busway, you can just use the card until there is no balance left. But for commuter line, you have to ensure there is more than enough balance to cover your trip. PLUS, if you are going to use a totally new car then you need to activate it. YES. Activate it first, ask around where you should activate your new car before you use it to pass the entrace gate.

Before Idul Fitri Holiday


I know I haven't been in this blog for ages and tell you the truth I was sort of out of ideas what to write. I mean, everyday I face the same thing over again and again. Crowded angry passengers, few buses only that it seems only the driver and God knows exactly about their schedule. I was afraid you might get bored with it because there is nothing new rather than my daily experiences. But anyway, let me try to write a summary what happened to me from January until recently, near Idul Fitri holiday.
