Indonesia is an archipelago consisting of thousands of islands, and transportation options vary depending on your location and the distance you need to cover.
FERRY: Indonesia is all islands and consequently boats have long been the most popular means of inter-island travel. ⇒ IndonesiaFerry.co.id
The largest company is the state-owned PELNI, whose giant ferries visit practically every major inhabited island in Indonesia on lengthy journeys that can take a week from end to end. ASDP runs fast ferries (Kapal Ferry Cepat, rather amusingly abbreviated KFC) on a number of popular routes.
TRAINS: Indonesia has a well-developed train network on the island of Java, which connects major cities like Jakarta, Bandung, Yogyakarta, and Surabaya. PT Kereta Api – the government-owned train company, runs trains across most of Java and some parts of Sumatra.
BUSES: Buses are a common mode of transportation for both short and long distances in Indonesia. ⇒ DAMRI • bosbis.com
In some areas, especially in densely populated cities, motorcycle taxis, known as ojek or Gojek drivers, are a popular and affordable option for short trips. You can hail them using mobile apps or find them waiting near busy streets. ⇒ gojek.com
