Hi guys, I have a quick (sort of off-topic) question: how can I get from Gambir train station to the ASEAN building by using this system? Or, is there a map online which clearly shows the system's current stations over an actual map of Jakarta?

Cheers for any help!

don't think we have an interactive map yet...

if you want to go from Gambir to the ASEAN building you can board the corridor II bus from Gambir 1 shelter (beware that there is Gambir 1 and Gambir 2 shelter at Gambir train station) to Harmoni Central Busway then change to corridor I bus and get off at Masjid Agung shelter -- from there maybe it's a 5-10 minutes walk... hope you get to your destination

Advice much appreciated! I am only in Jakarta for one day, so would like to avoid the possibility of traffic jams...since you've been so kind, I would just like to add 2 further questions (at least one of them I reckon might be of use to other posters also):

1. Is the Busway of any help for getting to the airport? Like, can it be taken towards the edge of town and then continued with a taxi? Or would I be better off taking the taxi the whole way?

2. Finally, another place I need to get to is on Jl. Teuku Cik Di Tiro in Jakarta Pusat (not far from Gambir station, by the looks of it, but I can't for the life of me find it on online maps), any idea about this street or possibilities of getting there?

Thanks again!

1. unfortunately the transjakarta does not go to the airport to get to the city from the airport you can take a cab; xtrans minibuses that goes to major hotels along jalan sudirman and jalan thamrin (you can try asking to be dropped at any of the busway shelters along the way); and DAMRI buses that goes to Bogor, Bekasi, Gambir, and Rawamangun (if like your original plan then you can catch this bus to Gambir train station and then get on a transjakarta bus from there -- it's up to you which shelter to use, Gambir 1 or Gambir 2 depending on where you want to go)

2. yes jalan teuku cik ditiro is not far away from gambir, but there is no transjakarta bus that passes there . it's best to use taxi to get here from Gambir or if you dare you can take local buses -- or if it's near and you don't carry any luggages you can try taking ojek (motorcycle taxi) or bajaj (note this road is only a one-way road going northwards and that vehicles coming from gambir going this way will take the nearby Jalan Cikini Raya that goes southwards -- make sure you tell the taxi driver which part of jalan teuku cik ditiro you want to go to)

hope that helps

Extremely helpful information about jalan teuku cik ditiro, thanks again!

As for the airport, I didn't make it clear, I want to go from Jakarta to the airport, not the other way around...but no worries, if no Transjakarta bus goes even close, taxi will have to do...was just concerned that since it's a 8:30PM flight, leaving the city at 6 (i.e. more or less rush-hour, no?) might not be the best idea.

i think it is best to take the taxi to the airport from the city if going at that time... and definitely leave the city by 5 PM because the toll road can get congested as well...

you can take a DAMRI bus as well to the airport from Gambir train station but it's much riskier because their departure schedule is rather "unpredictable" (if you're willing to take the risk maybe it is better to arrive there by 3-3:30 PM... )

hope that helps

that articulated bus operated at Corridor V will surely help reduce the congestion, especially on weekends when many families use it to go to the Ancol Theme Park

hopefully it will also be used on the Corridor I as well, as it passed through the financial district of Jakarta and working class of Jakarta rely on that corridor very much.

JAPAN EYES 51 PCT OF CONTRACTS OF JAKARTA SUBWAY PROJECT

JAKARTA, June 9 Asia Pulse - Japan wants Indonesia to award the contract to build Jakarta's subway project to Japanese firms as a condition for providing a loan of Rp8.36 trillion for the project, an official said.

Head of the Jakarta regional planning board Achmad Hariyadi said Japan wanted to have at least a 51 per cent share of the underground railway project.

Construction of the project is due to start next year.

The loan fund is expected to come from the Japan Bank for International Cooperation (JBIC), which has already provided Rp163 billion for administration and initial capital of PT Mass Rapid Transit (MRT), which owns the project.

A number of Japanese companies will take part in an auction to be held by PT MRT to select the contractors, Bisnis Indonesia quoted Achmad as saying.

I assume that is for the test run only? I dont recall ever seeing any cars abusing the busway lanes...but Im curious...does it happen? And how does jakarta deal with enforcement?

Sounds great for Indonesia Now that they can see that Tije has been a success, what is the expansion plan? Which cities will have BRT next? And how soon?

To my mind Jogjakarta makes sense as the next place to implement BRT.
