Taxi Cab in Bandung or Public Transport or Rent a Car? Reviews

If u come to Bandung and u dont have ur own transportation, u can always go here and there by taxi or public transportation or so called ANGKOT (angkutan kota = city transportation).
Be aware that many of the taxi companies in Bandung don't use a meter, so u named the place u wanna go and then start bargaining for the price, but usually the price they offer is much expensive than it should be, so my advice is to choose a taxi company that use meter.
U can call GEMAH RIPAH taxi (+62)22-4217070 or
BLUE BIRD Taxi (+62)22-7561234
only those two taxi companies use meter in Bandung and the drivers are polite and friendly.
Or maybe u wanna try another public transportation? try Angkot! it is a lot cheaper than taxi, but less comfy.
It is a minibus, where they put 15 people in it, and stop every 5 minutes, 'till it reaches the direction.
Pay attention on the colour of the Angkot, coz it's represent a different direction,if it a close distance u can just step out and pay IDR 1.000 or of its from one station to the final stop u can just pay for IDR 3.000, ask the local which angkot u should take to go to ur destination. u may have to switch angkot a couple times.
Or maybe u want some private or u travelled with more people and u can't stuff more than 4 people in taxi, renting a car is maybe a good alternative.
To use a suv car or kijang or avanza car for a whole day long it cost about IDR 300K-400K depends on how good u are with bargaining, and thats exclude gas (usually driver is already included).
If u interested about renting a car, u can try to call
Ibu Bambang on (+62) 22- 7560477 or Mr.Agus (62) 22- 5400703.
Hope this tip would be usefull for u!
