Glodok Station


This surpirsed me. I was there and a Jakarta friend waiting for a bus to get back home. There were so many people cramped in the waiting area of a station at Glodok. When the bus arrived, the door opened and everybody wanted to get in the bus. Then a bus operator controlled the number of passenger getting into the bus. Those can't get in will wait at the platform. And when the bus moved the station door closed. That's what you can see in the photo above. Phew.. come our turn, we managed to get into the bus and no need to wait outside the station on the platform.
My previous post in this blog about people not getting into the bus without buying tickets is proven wrong.

you know what? these days become worse!!! 4 times worse than the previous time you were in Jakarta, it happens since they open the Kalideres and Pulogadung routes. It also effected the traffic pretty badly, the tomang area which is already very with traffic jam also become worse...

Then it is a wrong move to have the new transportation? Most of the time the new transportation improves the road traffic. That is what I see in K.L. Myabe it take some time for the people in Jakarta to get used to it.

Hi, I'm new to this, I'm planning a trip to Jakarta soon, and I wanted to know if you could tell me the best way to reach Glodok from the airport. It'd be really great! Thank you so much!
