Indonesia is inhabited by around 250 million citizens whoutilize various transportation to travel.
According to the data compiled by Statistics Indonesia in 2015, more than 14 million people were living in Java island, with 10 million of them living in DKI Jakarta.
It is no wonder then that the government and related institutions are trying to fulfill the needs of public transportation, as shown by Jakarta administration's effort to promote commuter rail (KRL), Transjakarta, and other kinds of supporting vehicles. Even so, the number of public transportation is still below expectation.
“Being able to sit inside the train during office hours is rare. Usually passengers cannot even hold a handgrip,” said a worker who took the KRL from Serpong Station, as cited by "Kompas.com".
Similar situation also happens to the passengers of Transjakarta and other public transportation, like Mikrolet and Metro Mini that are often driven recklessly.
Thisweakcondition of public transportation indirectly influences people to choose using private vehicles, either cars or motorcycles.
However, there are also other alternatives to this issue,for instance rental vehicles.
Rental vehicles provide similar benefits to private vehicles, such as faster and more predictable traveling time, easier access, and more comfort. Rental vehicles also provide additional benefits.
Rental car users do not have to pay for maintenance. Also, nowadays rental cars are providedby reliable and trusted transportation companies like TRAC, a car rental company under Serasi Autoraya (SERA), part of Astra.
TRAC has 34 branch offices in big cities in Indonesia, like Jakarta, Surabaya, Semarang, Bandung, Batam, Lampung, Balikpapan, and Makassar. TRAC guarantees that their drivers have expert driving skills and professional services.
TRAC offers various types of cars which are all well-maintained, so that customers can rent and use the cars without worry.
