Tons of minibuses in Jakarta. And the drivers of them are the worst! They cut you off, compete for passengers, stop in the middle of the road to pick and drop off passengers...ough!

Mini Buses in Amsterdam, NL

In Amsterdam, some mini buses operate line 30, which connects Zunderdorp, Ransdorp, Holysloot and Durgerdam, some typical and small villages in the green 'Waterland' area, with the northern part of Amsterdam.

@ Isan: No, all Amsterdam buses are diesel powered (with the exception of three experimental fuel cell-prototypes, part of a worldwide fuel cell programme), and so are these small buses.

Milan

These minibuses are used for a special service, called Radiobus
RADIOBUS is a new service representing an intermediate position between the "traditional" public transport and the taxicab. The "bus on request" service picks you up and takes you where you want within the area served, without letting you wait. It is accessible only on request.
