Getting Around Jakarta

If you ask anyone about Jakarta, one of the first things than they will mention is the traffic. Commonly cited as one of the most difficult elements to deal with, a combination of poor city planning, rapid development and endless construction has earned the city the unenviable tile of having the worst traffic in the world.

With an estimated four million people commuting in and out of the city each day, traffic is one of the unavoidable realities of the city. Fortunately NIS is located within a quiet, residential area of Jakarta, neighbouring popular expat areas which makes transport to and from school relatively easy.

Motor vehicles

In many expat contracts, companies provide a vehicle and driver to help navigate Jakarta’s chaotic and poorly marked streets. Public transport is limited and until mass transit systems are completed in 2019, travelling in a car remains one of the realities of life in Jakarta. In order to rent your own vehicle you can expect to pay around $1000 per month.

Taxis are plentiful and affordable. The flag fall is 8000Rp for the first kilometre and each subsequent 100 metres is charged at around 300Rp. It can be helpful to have your destination written in Bahasa as many cab drivers have limited English. Other transport companies include Grab and Uber. Each of these companies have dedicated apps where you can request a driver from anywhere in the city at quite reasonable rates.

Motorcycle taxis (or ojeks) can navigate their way around traffic easier than cars.  GoJek is an app similar to Grab and Uber that connects passengers with drivers for motorcycle transport.

Bicycles

Many parents around expatriate communities in Kemang, Sudirman and Kuningan make use of bicycles as a sustainable alternative to cars. It’s a handy way to avoid gridlocked traffic, removes petrol and parking costs and is great for your fitness. Just make sure to wear a mask to avoid issues with pollution.
