TMII vs Jakarta

Please explain to me why TMII (Taman Mini Indonesia Indah) has a monorail since the 80s while Jakarta still hasnt catch up with managing its transportation in the 21st century?

Jakarta's government needs to solve the problem of "moving its people" instead of "moving the cars" as they have been trying to do. It's not working in back then, it's not working now.

This obviously is an expert by experience on public transport speaking. And she is ( quite rightly I guess)angry at and fed up with the experts by theory and authority.

So isn't it about time for a lobby organization like ROVER (

@colson, there are several groups of public transport users (busway, train) in jakarta already. I dont think the government really listen. I just found out that yesterday, during a deadlock traffic jam in the North of jakarta, the governor FOKE was stuck in traffic and decided with his "voorrijders' to drive counter traffic (at the wrong side of the road!!!!!!) to beat the traffic jam. What do you expect from someone as egotistical like him to solve Jakarta's problem?
