This picture is Senen Traditional Market, captured from Atrium Senen Plaza. First, Senen is a name of the traditional market that placed in Center Jakarta. But now Senen is name Plaza that across by street said Atrium Senen. In left side found Senen Terminal.
WE can find public transport to Senen and vice verse for 24 hour every day. The destination are Kota Terminal, Kampung Melayu Terminal and sometimes we can find public transport to Harmoni and Blok between 10.00 pm to about 05.00 am.
In the office hour too easy to get public transport in Senen. In Senen there are three busway shelter and so near. The three shelter is Senen Shelter, Central Senen and Atriun shelter. The Central Senen shelter is cross road by Kampung Melayu - Ancol Route with Harmoni - Pulo Gadung Route.

The Other Old Building

An old building in Old Town Jakarta. I don't know what kind architecture but I just know that over 350 years Dutch colonise in Indonesia. We can find many building that structured by Dutch Government Indonesia Include in Jakarta. This building placed about 100 meters from Kota Station Trans Jakarta, Busway. A part of Old Town complex but until now this building still in renovation. Where the others building in this complex now are museum like Fatahillah Museum, Bank Mandiri Museum and many others. The transport that pass this building are M12 from Senen and M08 from Tanah Abang that turn around old town before back to Senen or Tanah Abang.
May be in the future The Jakarta Government will make this building as travel destination. I also sad saw there a few build in here that have broken. But Government have repair the buildings. I hope all of building can be good again without change the origin architecture. The Old Town is a unique region because in this complex found building with unique architecture too.

Trans Jakarta Interior

Trans Jakarta Transport Interior made with sit that mutually front on. Capacity of this bus maximum 85 passenger. Even though the Trans Jakarta Transport operator got many complaint of passenger, I think until now The Trans Jakarta is a transport that most com portable. I this bus we'll never see beggars, civilians and singing beggars. We can got good service from Trans Jakarta Crew and even can give us guidance how to go to the place we want. May be the language will be obstacle if we travel in Jakarta. In this think we can talk to student that many of them are passenger of Trans Jakarta, Bus way. Trans Jakarta Bu sway existence make me too easy to go to the interest place because government always build bus way station in the famous interesting place like Taman Impian Jaya Ancol, Ragunan Zoo. Even the next corridor Will build the bus way station in Taman Mini Indonesia Indah.

This a kind of transport in Jakarta. Said Bajaj. Bajaj just operating in streets that licenced by government. The the old and classic transport. Majority of Jakarta society abuse this transport not more than 5 kilometer. Even, maybe most abuse this vehicle about 1 to 3 kilometer. A distance that can trace on foot. This mount consist of three wheel and can carry three passenger. This transport can be found in old town area. Because the transport have operated in Jakarta for long time ago. This transport scarce in area like Bekasi, Depok , Bogor and Tangerang.

City Bus many operating in Jakarta like Kopaja, Metromini, Patas, Mayasari and many others. Angkot found in streets that smaller where City Bus can operating there.
