Images collected from internet in year 2003-2004 when Transjakarta line 1 was underconstruction.

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

Does anyone know what the governor is planning to do with the current buses that still run in areas where the TJ buses operate? I don't think it makes any sense to let those buses go there, because the whole point of having busway is to separate buses from private vehicles. Maybe it's been mentioned somewhere before, but I'm just curious. Is Sutiyoso planning to phase out those buses?

As long as all routes not covered by TJ yet ... they will still exist ...
I understand when the routes aren't covered by TJ, regular buses are needed. But what about those that are already covered by TJ? It feels funny to see pics of a TJ bus next to a regular bus, with which private cars have to share lanes. This only increases congestion in regular lanes, because private drivers already sacrifice one lane for busway. They don't have much space left to share anymore.
