Public Transportation Day

Today is National Public Transportation Day. Really?

Nothing special happened today as everything just went on as usual. No special treat on bus fare or getting comfort more than usual.

I am sure that many people feel dissappointed and annoyed when using public transportation in Jakarta. For example?

When you were told get off and move to another public transportation that headed to the same direction.

Usually it happens when there is lack of passengers on board so the driver decided he wants to make a turn back. And therefore asked another driver of public transportation to take his passengers. Like for example, you are the one and only passenger on this Metromini 604. When the driver bumping into another metromini 604 he asked you to move there. You need not to pay double for the fare obviously. So why many people so angry when they told to move to another public transportation?

Life is like taking a bus

A few days ago, I tweeted about how our life is a reflection from the way we are taking a bus...

Don't believe me? Just think about it...

How much time you willing to spend to wait for your transportation? Either a crowded bus or luxurious taxi to get to your destination? Let us say that you are on the street waiting for a cab since 08.30 in the morning. Usually there are so many certain cab that you wish to take but darn! There seems to be none on that day... How much time you willing to spend? 15 minutes? 30 Minutes? Or perhaps an hour? Are you going to be so late because of that? Or perhaps you finally change your mind and just take whatever cab you can get...

In life we often just did that. First we wait for the best and after the waiting time seems like forever you started to change your mind. And start to wait for something less and lesser and in the end you are like...fine, anything will do! Naturally, sometimes we don't have much time to wait. So, we have to prepare for various alternatives. In case something doesn't work out just like our plan. At least we will be able to arrive on time and get the thing that we need :)

Life is really like taking a bus or any other public transportation ^_^

Grow up!

 Do you ever wonder why on earth people still insisting to ride on a crowded bus? Or you are probably amaze to see so many people sitting on the rooftop of a crowded train...

Yeah, yeah... It's not because those people have no clue about the danger. But simply, there is no other choice but to hop into the public transportation. Why? Because it will take forever to wait for the next bus or train. And that will mean those people going to be late to reach their destination. And most of them are trying to be in the office right on time, to avoid bad appraisal. So, yeah...sure what they have broken the rule. But situation give them no other alternatives, I know because well... I have been there. Not sitting on the rooftop of train but hanging on my dear life while taking a bus.
