Jakarta Transportation: 139 reviews and 152 photos
My preferred means of getting around for long distances in Jakarta is the ojek; I find the motorbike drivers efficient and skilful, and on bikes, you have an open view on all what happens around (and accessorily are also exposed to the heavy pollution of the traffic, but you have to make choices).
There are all sorts of bikers and I just propose you here a portrait gallery of some, which transported me, or who were waiting for a customer, even sleeping. . . .
They should have a helmet, but do not be surprised if they do not have or propose you.
Prices are very variable, and foreigners must always negotiate; but, think about: I paid 25.000 RP (1.7 Euro) for a trip from Senayan to Kota (13 km); is it really serious to have arguments for 2000-5000 Rupiah?
In general, for a one to five km trip you should pay 10.000-15.000 Rp
