Why Aren't People Using Jakarta's New Busway?
Placing a bus rapid transit lane down the middle of a central artery is one thing; getting people to the buses, across the other lanes of traffic, is an altogether different problem. Jakarta's spiffy new busway has created "a traffic-beating system for the tiny minority that live close enough to the Busway to make use of it." As for the rest, "they have to allow additional time to get anywhere, as the traffic is undoubtedly much, much worse than it was before."
