Congestion in Jakarta does require extraordinary patience. It seemed impossible if you like getting around Jakarta at low cost with no need to have longer hours when using a car, a taxi, motorcycle taxi, or even transport-based applications.
The Jakarta administration is providing various public transportation such as Transjakarta and City Tour Bu, but despite the TransJakarta has a special line, congestion problem still remains ahead. Riding Transjakarta bus is very cheap; we only need to pay IDR. 3500 and we can get off at any stop we want.
The most anti traffic jam public transportation today is the commuter train named @CommuterLine or Jakarta residents knew the services by the name KRL. Rail-based public transportation operated by PT KCJ is a mainstay of Jakarta resident to penetrate the breakdown of Jakarta. Although the service is often late from the schedule, but you journey is guaranteed to be smooth without a hitch but when being exposed to technical difficulties.
