Palembang to Jambi by road

Planning to go to go to Palembang by Silkair and from Palembang to Jambi by road. Need to know available coaches or private hire vehicles available from Palembang to Jambi, and the time of travel by road.

It is possible to hire a car and driver or go by bus to Jambi. There is also a flight with Riau Airlines but I believe it has stopped until some time in June 07. The road is badly in need of repair and full large holes and crazy drivers so the travel can be risky.

Travel time is around 4 hours and the road is in terrible condition with pot holes all over.

Regular buses ply this route and passenger van is available .Double confirmed that the van come with good working air/con.

Sedan car is not suitable due to low vehicles clearance in view of extremely bad road condition
