Juanda Airport to Surabaya

Are there shuttle buses from Surabaya airport to city center? Searched for info on Juanda Airport but found few pages in English and nothing about transportation to/from airport.

Thanks in advance.

Airport transportation to the city is provided by DAMRI bus or taxis.

No, the bus will go to the bus terminal, from there you have to arrange another transport to railway station (either Gubeng or Pasar Turi).

Wow, Cirque, always on duty! Terima kasih.

So, nothing goes directly to railway station. I land at SUB around 1.30 pm, then proceed to train station for Solo City. Better I take a taxi (with "argo") to train station. How much should I prepare?

Thanks.

If you want to get t railway station directly, just take taxi.

You should go to GUBENG train station, approximate taxi fare is Rp80,000-Rp100,000 one way.

Please note that at Surabaya airport to the city, the taxi is not using argo (btw, do you know what is "argo"???). It is using prepaid system.

However, if you can find metered taxi (such as Blue Bird Group) is better, but taxis at Surabaya airport is being monopolized by prepaid airport taxi.

Cirque, thanks for info. I found "argo" as a metered taxi (or "meter"). Bahasa Indonesia is unkown to me, even if I heard it`s pretty similar to bahasa Malaysia which I`m learning now.

So, there is a prepaid taxi counter inside or outside the airport, get a coupon and find a Blue Bird taxi.

Cheers.

No, all Blue Bird Taxis are metered.

The one operated using prepaid system at Surabaya Juanda airport is not blue bird taxis, but the "airport taxi".

Thanks for the info Cirque. I paid Rp 116 000 for a Blue Bird Taxi to the airport from Midtown Hotel (which was 1.5 km away from Surabaya Gubeng Station). I chose to take the highway and paid 4 tolls in total. (April 2013)

About how long does it take a taxi to get from the airport to the city?
