Bought myself this ticket just now. To me, this ticket means more than just the entitlement to ride on Jakarta’s Busways. It is the ticket that breaks my own mental barrier. It is my ticket to keep my sanity on the ground too.
After hiding in my own cave for a month or so, I finally stepped out to meet a bunch of Medanese friends in Plaza Senayan, doing my own little in-town adventure along the way. Whatever I did and experienced this evening, made me feel better and more normal than lately.
On the lighter notes, the ticket in the picture is Single Trip ticket, for singles. If you are travelling with your boyfriend/girlfriend, you should use Couple Trip ticket instead. Families are banned from using the Busway system because there’s no valid ticket type that they can purchase and use. Just kidding.
