Transportation

Local Transport: Getting to the Congress Venue 

Jakarta has a wide range of transportation options available from Soekarno Hatta International Airport to the city centre. Buses are operated by a good number of private operators and by the state-owned PPD bus company. Mayasari and Patas AC buses are air-conditioned and flat fares are charged and are posted by the entrance door. Three-wheeled, two-seats scooter taxis, locally known as "bajaj", and Bemo minibuses also operate on fixed routes throughout Jakarta, as do Mikrolet or Angkot minibuses.

The 55th ISOCARP World Planning Congress will take place in two locations in the island of Java, Indonesia: Jakarta and Bogor. The main congress venue is Hotel Borobudur in Jakarta (venue 1) where all activities from 10-13 September 2019 will take place. The other location is Bogor (IPB) International Convention Center (venue 2) where the Opening Ceremony and Welcoming Reception for all the delegates on the first day of the Congress, 9 September, will be held. Shuttle buses will be arranged to move delegates between the two venues.

Delegates who will be joining the Technical Tours on 9 September 2019, from 8:30-11:00, in Jakarta will proceed immediately after the tours to Bogor (IPB) International Convention Center (venue 2). For those who will NOT be joining the technical tours, shuttle buses will be available to carry delegates from Hotel Borobudur to Bogor International Convention Center.
