Ambon's Angkot System Map

Transportation is one of the most important things in traveling and Angkutan Kota (Angkot) is the main option of transportation in most Indonesian cities. Yet it seems to me that the government does not pay too much attention to angkots. No strict regulation issued to make it more comfortable for the passengers and many people don't know the routes as government does not provide enough information. It often makes confusion especially for travelers or people who visit the place for the first time.

In Ambon, most angkots are in green color.
Though some people say angkots in Ambon is more comfortable for passengers but basically it's nothing different from other places. Always taking private cars, the local government never use this kind of transportation for sure. That's why they got no idea what to do with it. Here I created by my own (and will be updated periodically), a map of Ambon's Angkot System. It's far from perfect but I hope it can help to inform tourists or even Amboneses how to get to places they want to go. I also hope the local government will see this and feel embarrassed as amateurs like me could make one. I'm sure they have a capability to make much better maps but they just don't want to. For your information, angkots in Ambon apply a flat fare (IDR 3,000 per July 2013) for one trip per passenger. No official information about the operational hours, but I think it's 06.00-22.00. On Sunday, less angkots would operate.
