I hope this information can be use for the tourist who want try to use economic train to travel inside city, so they will know what they will see when use economic train. There a lot of reason why don’t use economic train in Jakarta

Old train

Almost 47% of the train condition is needed to be regeneration. Accident could happened because the condition of the train that already old. Beside that the numbers of train compare with the number of passenger away from word enough. That why if we want enter the train we have to fight hard if we want get a sit.

Full and crowded

For the economic ticket usually the officer sale the ticket without any limit. So the train will be full of passenger. Its feel hard to brief if we standing inside the train. A lot of passenger using the top of the train to sit, they don’t care they safety the important is they can back home.

Pick pocket

The full and crowded condition it’s a good condition for pick pocket to take action. Usually we put the wallet inside the bag and we put the back in front of our body so they will think twice if they want to pick our wallet.

Pengamen (street singer)

In economic train there is a lof of pengamen. Sometime they will angry if we didn’t give them money. Better you prepare lot of small money prepare to handle this street singer

Pedagang Asongan (Hawkers)

Train already crowded but we still have to face with these hawkers. It’s make the train more crowded, although sometime this hawkers will be useful when we thirsty or hungry we just wait they come because they have lot of number in the train.
Better you have to think twice if you want using economic train especially in work hours.
