Just wait for culture habit change for using train + buses
We prefer using car + bike because cheap fuel and more purchasing power to buy car + bike

These walkways are good for when it's raining. Or when you want to walk from one end of the CBD to another and you dont want to deal with crossing the streets. So in Manila, it's not just about crossing the highway, it's about getting around the entire business district.

Manila's pedestrian bridges are built more for functionality than aesthetics. Those Jakarta bridges look nice though.



This is probably the nicest pedestrian bridge in Manila. It connects Terminal 3 to Newport City- one of the smaller CBDs with a lot of hotels, shopping, and a casino. A lot of people stay here short-term on their way to somewhere else, so it's convenient that it's connected to the airport.

Besides that, there are pedestrian bridges all over Metro Manila (not just in the CBDs), but they're not as nice.

Makati also has a network of elevated walkways that go all over the city. So they dont just go over 1 street, they go over several blocks. These are really convenient when you want to get from one side of Makati to the other and it's raining, or you dont want to wait for traffic to cross the road.

As you can see, most of the walkways are attached to buildings, so there are often shops and restaurants along the elevated walkway. These walkways connect businesses, malls, and MRT stations.

Ortigas CBD has also just built their elevated walkway network. Starting around 4 minutes in the video


Makati also has a system of underground walkways

Why do you think BRT is better? Bangkok also has BRT, and it's not as extensive as Jakarta's, but rail rapid transit that's grade-separated and with the ability to have several train cars is usually a lot more frequent, reliable, and has more carrying capacity and Bangkok has a lot more of that than either Jakarta or Manila does even with the opening of Jakarta's rapid transit system this month. Meanwhile, Bangkok's got an additional 140 kilometers of rapid rail transit under construction to be rolled out in the next few years.

Bangkok does seem like it's the most advanced of the three southeast asian megacities, so I'm curious as to what I'm missing about Jakarta and Manila.

yes,I think BRT is better because it can avoid traffic jams and have special routes like in Jakarta always provides buses that provide convenience for passengers. actually Jakarta BRT when viewed from the construction, the halte busway even the service is very ordinary or simple when compared to the very modern MRT/LRT Jakarta which will operate at the end of March, but are very a big of people's interest to use BRT and are never quiet of passenger

yeah bangkok is most advanced in transportation and did not know ahead whether is MRT / LRT Jakarta which will operate later will be more advanced than BKK or vice versa

Besides BRT, Jakarta currently has quite reliable Commuter line that connects busiest parts of the city and nearby cities like Bekasi, Tangerang, etc, spans around 230+ km. Last year it carried around 315 million pax.

But yeah, Jakarta's urban transportation system is still far from enough to accommodate its huge population.

But I'm optimistic it will continuously improve. After the completion of 16 km MRT and 6 km LRT, and waiting another 40km Jabodebek LRT to be completed in few years, Jakarta started to build 15km MRT phase 2 in December last year. The govt has set target of 110km MRT by 2025 and more than 200 km by 2029.

this is the current situation of Jakarta transportation or bus and mrt , Jakarta heading towards a better transportation than before

Yea, I'm optimistic as well. If they can really fast track the completion of a larger rapid transit rail network, it'll be fantastic.

yeah .. this is the new Jakarta MRT transportation is with various facilities, maybe a little different from other transportation in Jakarta in MRT JKT you don't see people eating or drinking and there aren't many places to sit on the train platform area there are even metal detectors
