It isn't that easy taking kids with public transportation in Jakarta. Especially when you are taking lots of them. But we always try to take kids that joined in Jurasik to use public transportation. Like yesterday we take them with commuter line to Taman Ismail Marzuki. Before that we take them use Transjakarta bus.
Before we start our trip usually we tell them where we are going, where we are going to take the train/bus and where we are got off the train/bus. We also tell them how to use automatic ticket, how to buy it and take some of them to buy the ticket. Beside that we tell them the rules that apply in the train/bus such as cannot eat/drink inside the train/bus, how to behave in public transportation and other things that cross in our mind.
We believed you need to know how to use public transportation to survive in life.
