    OK. As three or four others have said, there is NO problem getting legal taxis at the airport. This has nothing to do with individual choice; they exist in spades as you leave the baggage claim.

    I just want to get safely from the airport to Gajah Mada in a weeks time. I don't want to pay too much but I don't want the trip to take too long either. I'm hoping to hit the ground running near Gajah Mada and either "high tail" to Classic or Maliboro ASAP as possible!

So many travel by this means of transport. I see so many people questioning my choice. Common on, as I said before, to each his own.

    Jakarta, I always take the Blue Bird taxi.
    To Manfield04.

    I always find bluebird even after midnight at the airport last time I take a private taxi to Kota we agree on 120 k w toll, I take Damri bus before never again it take too long bus made many stop along the way to Gambir stop at the security check point police search the bus, if you have a lot of luggage just take the taxi there are no space for baggage.

On three previous visits I took the illegal taxi, they will pester you with so many questions and ask for tips or toll charge etc. Well, to each his own.
    Interesting. I've arrived in Jakarta over 100 times over the years. Never once have I ever taken an "illegal" taxi.

    It's not about paying an additional IDR 100 k. Most of the time I am approached by illegal taxi, I. E. , private cars working as taxis.

    As far as a Damri bus taking only 10 minutes more than a taxi, unless you are taking that bus from terminal 3 (very few flights are arriving in terminal 3 yet since it's new), that is not accurate. Those buses spend about 5 to 10 minutes in each terminal. If you start at terminal 1, it then goes to 2 then to 3 before it even leaves. So if starting from Terminal 1, it takes about 20 minutes to a half hour before it even leaves the airport. Maybe you jumped on the bus in terminal 3 just as it was leaving that terminal. However, the bus then takes the side road with traffic on the way instead of the highway the entire way. It literally took me at least an hour longer than with a taxi the one time I tried it (total trip time including taxi from bus station). I took it to Blok M station then took a taxi from there. And it was a pain in the ass dragging my luggage to where the taxis were at Blok M. The taxi cost me another 30k for a total of 70k. Totally not worth it in my opinion. For me, paying another 100k is no big deal for the convenience and time saving. I guess it depends on your situation.

    Airport to Hotel in North Jakarta

    I have taken the Damri bus from the airport to Gambir bus station twice. One way fare is IDR 40 k. It took around 10 minutes more than the taxi I took on previous trips. The taxi, not metered ones, had charged IDR 150 k. From Gambir station, I took an Ojek to my hotel. The Ojek took around 10 minutes and charges IDR 20 k. So, the total fare was IDR 60 k from the airport to my hotel and I reached the hotel around 20 minutes later than a taxi.

    For sure it is 40 k. I took that bus one time. It took me over an hour longer to get home than it takes me with a taxi. In my opinion, it's not worth saving 10 usd taking that bus.
