To Bandung from Jakarta by Taxi

Im planning to go to bandung from jakarta by taxi. I've read that Golden Bird taxi service would be best. Anyone knows how much it would cost? To and fro..And how do i go about making an advance booking if need be?

I do not know the exact amount, but getting from the airport to the city costs no less than Rp 100,000.-, so one may estimate that driving by taxi to Bandung would cost something like Rp 400,000.-;

Why not take the train from Gambir station to Bandung, costs only Rp 40,000.- ?

Gambir Station? Is that far from the airport? How long does it take to bandung by train?

Gambir Station is in the centre of Jakarta, just east of Merdeka Square. Depending on the traffic takes about an hour from the airport.

The train takes 3 hours to get to Bandung. There are at least 10 trains daily. The trains called Argo Gede (Rp 50,000) are the fastest, their AC may be too cold. The trains called Parahyangan (Rp 25,000 - 40,000) are a little bit slower.

Advance booking is only possible at the station counter. But usually - if it is not holiday season - you can get a ticket half an hour before the train leaves.

See the train schedule at: infoka.kereta-api.com/index.php… [Enter your Origin and Destination, Gambir and Bandung respectively].

Hi,

You can also go by bus to Bandung from Jakarta Airport. I did this trip at 7pm in early May 2008.

I spoke with a yuong porter at the airport who was able to help me to buy new credit for my mobile phone and also to buy a bus ticket. Luckily for me the bus left 10 minutes later and took 3 hrs to get to Bandung.

The drop off point is at a huge shopping mall- cannot remember where.

I think the bus company's name started with C.

I am sure someone else will be bale to fill in the details I have missed.

The wisest way would be by shuttle service between Jakarta airport directly to Bandung. These are operated by either Cipaganti or X-trans. The fare is Rp90.000 per person one way to Bandung.

You can go to the website for schedule, fare, and telephone number. They have counters at airport, so just reach the counter and buy the ticket, no advance booking is necessary, however you can do so if you want to.

The fleet are comfy 8-seater or 10-seater van or mini bus (like KIA pregio).

www.cipaganti.co.id or www.xtrans.co.id

Golden Bird is the brand of limousine and car rental service from reputable taxi company; Blue Bird Group. You can book by contacting them by email, phone, or website www.blueburdgroup.com Depending on what vehicle you wish to rent, the cheapest one can go from Rp525.000/3 hours with additional Rp70.000/hour.

P.S. never buy anything from the airport porter or anybody at the airport (everyone in the airport seems to have double job as a retailer as well!). They are nice and target people who look confuse or need help. They will help you but will also trick you to buy something from them, the price is not the recommended retail price you would get at other place...

I know... In case you're having trouble in translating the bahasa, you can always ask in the forum. (Since you're from Singapore, give you the website directly since it's not differ much than Bahasa Malaysia, but if you're ang-moh, then pardon me, I can translate it for you...)
