Oilers taxi and public transport

In Indonesia, you can take taxis as transport. These are not as expensive. In 2010, they cost 25 cents converted to provide you a few kilometers through the city. Each city has different identifiers on the vans. In one city the letters on the vans, in the other city are the colored lights on the roof. If a van driving along you can just ask him if he's going in the right direction for you to.

A taxi

The taxi vans drive fixed routes. They called a taxi or a biasa. After arriving at a terminal driving them back to the terminal where a lot of buses stand. It is not aaan paddle to step in at the terminal. You can do it but the buses only leave when they are full. It sometimes takes a long time before they leave; it may take as two hours before the bus is full. If you want to leave earlier you have to charter a bus. Then you pay for all the empty seats on the bus. It tends to be a relatively expensive experience On the other hand it remains inexpensive for Westerners.

Inland, the vans are completely packed with people. The vans, which in the Netherlands no more than eight people can be transported, by default considered to have 15 seats. But sometimes 25 people are transported in a tiny van. Sometimes, the luggage is then placed on the roof.


The taxis are sometimes played loud music. There are taxis that play DVDs, sometimes with karaoke DVDs so you can sing along. Other taxis are covered with dozens of interior mirrors which no one in the backward state oriented. Most taxis honking to make it known that you can join them. Sometimes the driver is accompanied by another employee of the taxi indicating the destination. For example, if a taxi towards the city you will hear, "Kotakotakotakotakotakotakotakotakotakota!" Kota therefore means city.

The handle to open the door is broken, or windows do not open, or the vans just make a lot of noise, sometimes all within the plastic protection broke down because the vans were fully loaded. The metal body is often corroded. An MOT they apparently do not know in Indonesia.

Sometimes there while you're on the street just runs a moped ride past with the question: "Ojek Ojek Ojek?!?" The driver then hopes to welcome you as a customer. For many people the ojek is a way to pay for the moped. Much money you earn out of this, but it was enough to buy some gasoline and food.
