As it stands, Bangkok certainly beats both Jakarta and Manila. It'd be great if Bangkok massively improved and yet Jakarta and Manila still beat Bangkok on this metric, because that means the whole region has done better.
yeah I think so ...

Yes, Kuala Lumpur's is better given the population size and Singapore's is definitively the best in the region. I don't think anyone would argue otherwise. It'd be amazing if the other major SEA cities had systems that gave Singapore's a run for its money.

I would say Jakarta has better transit than Manila. Indonesia in general has traditionally been a more train-riding society than the Philippines.

Jakarta has 6 commuter (heavy rail) lines, covering 418 km. An airport link train link (54 km), and an airport skytrain (3 km). Plus it's opening an LRT line (6 km) and an MRT line (16 km) in March. So that's 475 km of train currently, extending to 497 km soon. Then there's the BRT (231 km)

Manila has 1 commuter line (56 km), 2 LRT lines (34 km total, extending to 38 km this year), 1 MRT line (17 km), and opening up another MRT line within a year (another 23 km). So currently 107 km of trains in Manila, extending to 134 km in a year's time. Manila also has a river ferry line (28 km)

When it comes to daily ridership:

Jakarta:
KRL Commuter lines- 1 million
Soekarno–Hatta Airport Rail Link- 33,000 at full capacity
MRT- 173,400 (future estimate)
LRT- 76,140 (future estimate)
= 1.2~1.3 million, including the lines that will open up this year

Manila:
LRT1- 500,000
LRT2- 200,000
MRT- 560,000
PNR- 50,000
= 1.3 million currently

and then the MRT7 will add 450,000 (future estimate)

So both cities have around the same amount of train passengers.

Besides trains, the BRT in Jakarta has almost 700,000 daily riders. Manila doesnt have a BRT, but 1.3 million ride buses daily. A BRT would be nice. Many of the buses in Manila are nice, especially the P2P buses. but they dont have a dedicated lane like the BRT.


Manila just started construction on an additional commuter line (expected to be complete by 2022), and 2 subway lines (supposed to be complete by 2025) but we'll see how long it really takes.



TLDR- Jakarta has a more extensive train system and a more organized bus system. But Manila has more passengers using trains and buses.

yeah comparing transportation infrastructure both cities of Jakarta are better than Manila and Jakarta compared to Bangkok maybe Bangkok is better than JKT, but Jakarta has a better transportation system like BRT, and at the end of this month MRT & LRT will soon operate for the public
