I've tried it when in Jakarta summer 2004, it's good and the city should build more lines.... faster.

looking at america's history.. it dont think corruption is going ot end as fast. from what ive heard, indonesia's coruption ness seems to resemble america in the 1930s, the gilded age, with bosstweed's political machine, tammaney hall, and al capone and how the police were powerless agains thim and aaaaaalll that jazz. taht would be coruption at it worst, which would be the same level indonesia is at right now.. corruption continued to haunt america up to the water gate scandal in the early eighties with nixon... and thats like fifty years.. so id say that itd take htat long for corruption to end in indo. maybe less..
wow... BUmmer.. i dont see why trees neet to be chopped down to make busway lanes? maybe the stations but... why that manY? its not like the trees grow on the asphalt.. but maybe the branches get in the way of the lane.. but they can prune the trees instead of choping them down..

but at least the buses are gonna be powered by CNG
i like it.. thats really really clever. cept the bustlooks like it about to run into the curb..
oops i pressed enter before i finished what i was gonna say

but u should totally like sell it tothem cuz i think that'd make an awesome advertisement. its short n simple, unlike alot of indonesian advertisments that try to use as much english as possible but never come out right

wow that was a loooooong read. but anyway it has a ton of innovative and novel ideas. . jakarta shouold really adapt some of them, like narrowing the busway lanes etc. thanks alvin i hope thegovernmetn considers taht thing
oh and i saw bogotas busway... it seems like jakarta tried to copy their bus stops, but yeah... they didnt pull it off at all , cuz bogota's looks so nice n modern, but jakarta's bust stop looks like shankles and a whole jamboree of metal crud
