Additional Public Transportion in Jakarta

Few years back, I posted a list of public transportation here in Jakarta. You may check the link here.

At that time, I hardly use motor-taxi (or known here as "Ojek") and train (or Commuter Line). More detail here:

Why People Fight For A Seat

You probably wonder...why oh why seat on public transportation like buses or commuter line is so damn important.

Well, perhaps these pictures may give you an idea

Pictures Talking

In the year 2011, when I was one of many bus terminals in Jakarta, I saw many people rush to go to their home town to celebrate Idul Fitri. And along the way, not only people went home by bus but also their motorcycle. Probably to be given to their family back home or to be used during the festive day.

At first nothing happened

Problem With Your Pre-paid Card

It has been ages since I last posted here, I know... Probably because I have nothing to tell you other than the buses getting few and fewer within these last couple of months. The people is getting crazier all the time...In short, there seems nothing the passengers could do about it... Just accept them as facts of life.

ANyway, like I have said in many of my postings here...if you are going to stay here in Jakarta for quite a while there there is nothing wrong to have at least one pre-paid card. But on second thought, let's make it two. Why? Here are the reasons:

1. Dude, this is Jakarta... You are probably going to encounter your first time of getting mugged on the bus. Seriously. Pickpockets are here and there in almost every public transportation. Not to mention mall or any public places. If you only have one and you put it in your pocket...well... Do I need to explain more?
Shortcut: buy another pre-paid card that will cost you IDR 40.000,-. The price for the card is IDR 20.000,- and the rest will be used to pay the fare.
