Jakarta Bus Runs – Commuters Face Toilet Horrors!

The UK’s first bus powered entirely by human and food waste has gone into service between Bristol and Bath.   http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-bristol-30115137

Well, whooppee poopee do!

Of more immediate interest to my numerous Jakarta readers is the question of what happens if you get an attack of the  runs whilst travelling on the Trans-Jakarta Busway. Most citizens of the Big Durian, like me, enjoy spicy hot foods, like the delicious Padang dish known as rendang.

But such culinary delights can betray you.




I’ve only spotted one toilet, at Pondok Indah2, and without having inspected it up close, it seemed to be a horrid squattie.

Still, any port in a storm, and this is Indonesia, after all.

But how many other Halte Busways have a toilet of any sort? 

I have actually been using it a lot (the Busway, not the toilet!) recently, and haven’t seen any, besides the one already mentioned. Can readers advise me if others exist?
