Walk the Streets of Jakarta With Jalan Kaki

In a dense city where traffic jams are a part of everyday life, residents must be smart in considering their commuting and transportation options. Unlike metropolises in more developed countries, Jakarta’s street grid lacks organization and isn’t well integrated with its limited public transportation.

Traffic jams, stop-and-go commutes with more “stop” than “go” and air pollution greet those traveling through the city.

The administration’s ideas for improvement haven’t produced results, with failed attempts at a monorail and now a proposed elevated bus system that would cost seven times more than the monorail but only has funding for a fraction of the $500 million price tag.
