Transportation in Jakarta


The Trans Jakarta Bus offers the best public transport, with new routes opening annually. There will soon be 10 routes, all colour-coded. The bus uses specially constructed "bus corridors". Fares are Rp5,000, and stored-value cards and special offers are available. Travelling outside the morning and evening rush hours means avoiding the crowds. Special fares are available at off-peak times.


The taxis of Jakarta vary a lot, and caution should be used when choosing a taxi company. By far the safest and the best come from The Blue Bird Group. Vehicles vary from Blue, the basic blue car, through to Silver Birds where passengers are whisked around the city in a Mercedes Coupé.


Walking should only be considered for very short excursions because of the heat. Short strolls around the harbour and the Central districts are possible. Taking a long walk in Jakarta will result in a very uncomfortable and perspiring visitor.

Rent your car

Car hire is possible in Jakarta, but congestion is a huge problem. To ease this, tolls are payable on on the roads to the airport and Merak port, cars travelling with less than three people are banned during peak times on some roads, and an outer ring road is being constructed.

Transportation tips

For the longer journeys across town, a taxi is the best option, and a Blue Bird taxi can be booked to come to the hotel. Trans Jakarta Buses have day travel cards, and bus route maps can be found in hotels and bus terminals
