Transportation

Buses, minibuses and taxis are the main methods of transportation available. The public transportation mostly goes to Jakarta since many of the residents of South Tangerang commute into Jakarta. There are feeder buses for Transjakarta. The feeder buses are from Bumi Serpong Damai and Bintaro Jaya to downtown Jakarta in Senayan.

The city is also served by KRL Jabotabek for the commuters who work in Jakarta, and by intercity service from PT Kereta Api Indonesia. KRL Jabotabek is operated by subsidiary of PT Kereta Api Indonesia for the commuter line in Greater Jakarta metropolitan area.

There are two toll roads servicing the city, namely Jakarta-Serpong Toll Road and Jakarta-Tangerang Toll Road. There are also several toll roads currently under planning. The plans are for a Serpong-Balaraja Toll Road which will continue the Jakarta-Serpong toll road, and Jakarta Outer Ring Road 2 which will be connecting the city to Soekarno-Hatta International Airport in the near future.

Pondok Cabe Airport – which is used for military and civilian services – is the only airport located within the city boundaries. It is owned by PT Pertamina, the national oil company. The airport is also used for the maintenance base for Pelita Air Service, also owned by PT Pertamina.

Cycle rickshaws (becak) are still available in some areas in the city. Becak is the only method of transportation currently forbidden to operate in Jakarta as its slow speed has allegedly led to congestion in the traffic of Jakarta. However, since South Tangerang is located on the outskirts of Jakarta (instead of the city proper), it is allowed in the city.

On October 10, 2013, a Memorandum of Understanding has been signed by PT Petras Indonesia and PT Banten Global Development to make a join venture PT Banten Monorel to build Serpong to Soekarno-Hatta International Airport monorail with more than 35 kilometers length, predicted Rp12,000 billion cost and ground breaking is planned to be done on August 17, 2014.[4]
