One day you got a call to have job's interview or have this important matters to attend. And for that you need to go to a place which you have no idea where.
Though nowadays we can ask almost about everything to Google but not everyone able to read map or understand directions stated on Google maps. So, what clue we need to know first while using public transportation or our own car?
What I usually do is naturally asking whether the place located near the busway stop? If yes, then what is the name of the busway stop? Which side of the road if I am here at the busway stop now? Right or left? Or sometimes the busway stop only first clue for you before continuing with other public transportation. It's a good thing if the person you asked able to give you that kind of information.
So, what happen if this place is far away from the busway stop? Usually I asked them whether the place is far from a certain bus terminal. And which bus to take if I decided to go from that certain bus terminal. If you are such a forgetful person then make sure to write it all the information. Don't loose it until you arrive at the exact place. Don't hesitate to ask around though try not to look so nervous. Yeah, you have no idea where you are but doesn't mean you are having amnesia and forgot your whereabouts. People loves taking advantages on people who looks daze and confuse.
P.S. For those of you in Jakarta and using busway regularly, I recommended you to download TransJakarta on Blackberry so you will have a list of corridors for busway in Jakarta. Or perhaps you should get a map on bookstores. Or just download from their website.
