All About Indonesia #5: Modes of transport – The Bemo

This is the fifth in our All About Indonesia series and the third one in the modes of transport series. Man, talk about a series within a series!

Another noisy little neighborhood vehicle in Indonesia is the bemo, which is used for local transportation in limited areas in Jakarta. Originally brought to Indonesia by the Japanese government as part of a disaster relief package in 1962, the vehicles were never manufactured in Indonesia in as great a number as bajaj or becak. Bemo are found in and near Benhil, Tanjung Priok, Kramat Jati and other areas outside Jakarta.

On September 5 – 9, let us all gather for V-Indonesia and enjoy the local culture! Join us there for an exciting and inspiring experience that you will never forget!

For more updates, always check out www.the-v.net. More tomorrow!
