All transport modes play a role in Indonesia’s transport system and are generally complementary rather than competitive. Road transport is predominant. As in Bandung – and Jatinangor in particular – various tranportations are used. It ranges from buses, trains and taxis to some unique local public transportations such as angkot (public tranport car), ojek (private transport motorcycle) and becak (also known as cycle rickshaw).Please visit our “Gallery” for more visualizations of these modes of transportations.
Bus services are available in most areas connected to the road network. The bus itself might be uncomfortable in visible and also when it comes to the number of passengers. However, it’s one of the primary form of transportation within cities.
This type of transport is usually used in more remote areas or between smaller towns. It comes in a shape of minibus or minivan.
This transport uses a private-owned motorcycle for public purposes. It is mostly used for a short distance transport. It usually costs more than using a public transportation such as bus and angkot, but due to its promptness, ojek has become a solution of retardment issues.
The cycle rickshaw is a small-scale local means of transport. In Indonesia, it is a traditional transportation and human-powered, a type of tricycle designed to carry passengers in addition to the driver.
