If you live in Jakarta, there are no quick ways to get around. The bus-only lanes of the Transjakarta Busway make it one of the fastest ways to get around in Jakarta because it is so quick. These, on the other hand, may get jammed up with traffic as well. Motorbikes and cars Rental cars may be more cost-effective if you have a driver to help you out (for short journeys and full-day rentals). Go-Jek motorcycles are cheaper and faster than other ways to get around, but they are also more likely to get dirty and be less safe. Taxi, One of the best ways to get around town (and it has air conditioning, too)! Bluebird is the best choice. Make sure your taxi has a meter if you're going to a different place to get a ride.
The best way to get around Jakarta in 2022:
1. Ride a bicycle
Cyclists should only ride their bikes in areas that have been marked. As a whole, this isn't a good idea. There are too many potholes and too much chaos. Getting around on a bike in Jakarta is almost impossible because of the city's bad traffic and lack of bike lanes. This is especially true outside the city's mostly traffic-free tourist zones. A lot of people ride bikes on Sunday between the main streets of Jl Sudirman and MH Thamrin.
2. The bus is coming.
The Transjakarta Busway system has sped up city transportation a lot in the last few years. Tourists should not ride on other buses because they are slower, hotter (no air conditioning), and more crowded (pickpockets can be a problem). The Jakarta busway There is a system of air-conditioned buses called Transjakarta that runs on busways that have been approved by the government (designated lanes that are closed to all other traffic). They can help you move quickly across the city. Koridor line 1 is one of the best ways to get to Kota from the city center. It goes through Monas and along Jl Sudirman. People at stations can see Peta-rute route maps, which help them figure out how to get there (www.transjakarta.co.id). In most cases, busways have been built in the middle of existing highways, with stops about a mile apart. Each station has a shelter and is accessible through raised walkways. There are now fifteen koridor that can be used. It costs between 3500 IDR and 9000 IDR to take the train. It goes to all the train network's stops (regardless of how many koridor you use). People can buy a stored value card for 40,000 IDR, which comes with a 20,000 IDR credit. For group trips, you don't need to buy more cards. You can share the one you already have. Buses are often available from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m., so they are often full. In the morning and afternoon, some traffic is sent to the busways, which slows down the flow of traffic. They all run 24 hours a day. Buses Koridor 1, 9, 3, 2, 5, 8, and 10 all run. In general, they run every 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the traffic. For this reason, it is always a good idea to leave extra time for each trip. Due to a lot of traffic, buses don't always run on time.
3. Cars and Motorcycles
People who want to rent a car from a big company can find them both at the airport and in the city. Most tourists hire a driver to help them get around the city's complicated network of streets. For 500,000 to 700,000 IDR per day, these may be ordered via your hotel or using the Grab app. If you pay for the trip, you don't get tolls or parking. Odd and even license plate numbers aren't allowed to enter the city on different days in an effort to cut down on slow traffic. You can ride a motorbike in Jakarta if you're brave enough, but it's not a good idea for people who haven't done it before. It's better to use Go-Jek or Grab bikes. A helmet is provided by both companies as part of their ojek service. Short trips cost about 25,000,- IDR.
4. Taxi service
Taxi fares in Jakarta aren't very high. The flag fall costs 7500 IDR, and each 100 M after the first kilometer costs about 300 IDR. Thank you for the tip. When it comes to talking in English, most cab drivers aren't very good at it. To help them understand where you're going, write down your destination in Bahasa or show them a map of the area where you're going. Taxis aren't all created equal. Many hotels and taxi stations use Bluebird cabs, which are the most trustworthy. You can use the company's mobile app to place an order. Uber recently bought Grab, which is based in Singapore and offers cheap transportation (around $30 for eight hours of driving around town). It has apps that let you order and manage your rides, so you can do that. He or she might not be able to speak English. Parks and tolls are not included in the ticket price.
5. Take the MRT and LRT.
Both the new Jakarta MRT and the Jakarta LRT, which is a monorail, are now open. You can also take a train to Bogor. The government is building a high-speed train track to Bandung from Jakarta, and it's considered it will only take 30 minutes to get there.
Bajaj. Allow them to move a little faster than other ways of getting around. They may, however, get stuck in a lot of traffic. tourist may end up paying more for it because it is hard to figure out how much a Bajaj should cost. Normally you would talk and negotiate with the Bajaj Driver/Rider in the first place before getting on the Bajaj.
The author will recommend that public transportation is best for everyday things, but if you want to go out for a nice meal, you can take a taxi or a grab car. If you're running late for a meeting, you can use a gojek or a bicycle to get there.
