Traffic in Indonesia is highly dangerous, congested, and undisciplined.

Road conditions vary from good to poor. Major cities roads and toll roads are in good conditions.

Although the traffic regulation in Indonesia is moving on the left of the road, many drivers tend to ignore it and pass on both sides.


Urban Transportation

Motorcycles are dominant traffic in urban area of Indonesia, mixing with pedicabs, horse and ox carts, pushcarts, and domestic animals such as cows, sheep, and goats.


Water Transport

Sea transport is pretty important for Indonesia. As an archipelago with thousands of islands, Indonesia has the most port cities. Inland water transport is less developed than sea transport and is limited to certain areas of Eastern Sumatra and Kalimantan.



The railway system in Indonesia is undeveloped. It has four unconnected networks in Java and Sumatra primarily dedicated to transport bulk commodities and long-distance passenger traffic.


Indonesia has an extensive domestic airline network where all major cities can be reached by passenger plane.
