Jakarta Travel Guide

Getting Around Jakarta

Travel across Jakarta is often a combination of many forms of transport. Commonly used is the Transjakarta, a modern bus system that are allocated special street lanes to circumnavigate traffic in the city centre. These are cheap and plentiful although going long distances can become confusing when transferring. Other bus lines are more crowded and less safe and do not run on a fixed schedule. Taxis are abundant but can be expensive for longer rides. Blue Bird taxis are the most trusted although there are many impostors with questionable reputations. Many narrow street lanes are better suited for ojeks, also known as motorbike taxis. Also popular for shorter trips are three wheeled vehicles known as bajaj. Be sure to bargain with both ojek and bajaj drivers before accepting rides.
