I know they helped plan the Cairo Metro with France, did they help fund it as well? What would the map for the metro in Jakarta be like?

Exactly who from the Japanese government took a leak in your cereal this morning? I'm excited for Jakarta. Who knows how long they've been needing a metro.

JAKARTA | Public Transport

Welcome To Jakarta!

Selamat Datang di Jakarta!

Transport
There are railways throughout Jakarta; however, they are inadequate in providing transportation for the citizens of Jakarta. In peak hours, the number of passengers simply overloads the capacity provided. The railroad tracks connect Jakarta to its neighboring cities.Buses and transport cars (local language: Angkot, angkutan kota) are also popular. Like trains, they also become overloaded during peak hours.

Bus
In 2003, the government formed a busway system named TransJakarta ; it serves a route running from Jakarta Kota to Blok M. The busway takes less than half an hour to traverse a route which would normally take more than an hour during peak hours.
The second phase of the busway will be constructed in 2005, serving the route from Pulogadung to Kalideres.


Taxi
Taxi is your best bet to travel around in Jakarta after Bus there are many taxi companies in Jakarta, use Bluebirds/Bird group taxis, they can be trusted while other taxi companies may cheat you your money.

Monorail
In 2004, Government started the monorail projects right now Two monorail tracks are being constructed: the green line serving Semanggi-Casablanca-Kuningan-Semanggi and the blue line serving Kampung Melayu-Casablanca-Tanah Abang-Roxy. In addition, there are plans for a two-line subway (MRT) system, with a north-south line between Kota and Fatmawati, with connections to both monorail lines; and an east-west line, which willl connect with the north-south line at the Sawah Besar station.

MRT (Started 2006)
In addition, there are plans for a two-line subway (MRT) system, with a north-south line between Kota and Fatmawati, with connections to both monorail lines; and an east-west line, which willl connect with the north-south line at the Sawah Besar station.

Waterbus Ferries(FUTURE)
The government is also considering waterbus ferries as a cheaper means of transportation along the canals in Jakarta.

Now we talking about Bus transportation in Jakarta

TransJakarta Official Website

TransJakarta Discussion Thread




By year 2006/2007 this is what it looks (TransJakarta Transport System)

created by own Indo Forumer peseq5



Still from http://trans.jakarta.go.id, 4 lines are to be build in 2006 whose budget is already proposed to the parliament. It's said that these 4 lines will be operational by the end of 2006 which looks very much optimistic.

Line 4: Pulo Gadung - Bundaran Hotel Indonesia
See the 2nd map, this line connects B1 and A11. I'm pretty much sure that this line will pass Jl Pemuda, Jl Pramuka, passing in front of Saint Caroles Hospital, RSCM, Megaria, connection with Jabotabek line (Cikini Station), Jl Diponegoro, Jl Imam Bonjol and arriving in Bunderan HI for connection with Line 1.

When this line is realized it'll be easy to travel from the south to the east of Jakarta. Will see a lot of passengers.
However they may face difficulties to find an area to allow the buses to make U-Turn in Bunderan HI, there's no enough space there.

Line 5: Kampung Melayu - Ancol
Starts from BL1 go up north crossing Line 4 and Line 2. So we will see the integration with those 2 lines plus the possibility corresponding with Jabotabek railway somewhere on the north.

This line I predict will pass, Jatinegara Market, Connection with Jabotabek railway in Jatinegara station. Then go to Matraman raya, connection with Line 4 around Saint Caroles area, go up north to Pasar Senen, and Jl Mangga Besar then arriving in Ancol.

Line 6: Kampung Rambutan - Kampung Melayu
As said in their website, this will be the most difficult line to build since the road in Jl. Dewi Sartika is narrow.

Predicted iteneries, start from Kp Rambutan, Jl. Raya Bogor, Cililitan, Jl Dewi Sartika, Cawang, Polonia and Kp Melayu (connected with Monorail Station).

Line 7: Ragunan-Imam Bonjol
Very promising line since this will connect residential area in the south of jakarta with CBD of Kuningan. The roads that it passes are quite wide so the success probability of having this line realized is quite high.

My guess is this line will start from Ragunan Zoo, Pejaten, Warung Buncit, Mampang Prapatan, Jl. Rasuna Said, connection with Monorail Line Blue in Mega Kuningan, and ends in Jl Imam Bonjol (connected with Line 4).

The only difficulty will be to find an area for the buses changing direction back to Ragunan in Jl Imam Bonjol since the road is quite narrow and this is a diplomatic area --it's not supposed to be a busy area.


As seen above, there are a lot of connection between the lines and with Jabotabek and future monorail.

For illustration, the 4 new lines would appear the the right bottom part of peseq5's map.

PS: tata the rest is up 2 u explain to them the corridor 1 and 2

Looks good. What will the transit map look like with the addition of the subway? Will there be any lines after the initial two?

both pictures below belong to www.TheJakartaPost.com





BUSWAY TRANSIT: A TransJakarta bus passes through a narrow section of Jl. Gajah Mada in Harmoni, Central Jakarta. Half the traffic lanes at the section have been closed for quite some time to make way for the construction of a Busway transit station for TransJakarta buses. The project includes a bridge over the Ciliwung River that separates Jl. Gajah Mada and Jl. Hayamwuruk. (JP/Mulkan Salmona)

This sounds identical to what many Latin American countries have implemented, such as in Bogota.
