Keen Look On Angkot

The man sitting on the passenger seat of a shared-ride van called Angkot directed a keen look at my camera

The building of the Jakarta Kota Railway Station was not big. I walked sideways past Starbucks, Kentucky Fried Chicken, and convenience stores, and before I knew it, I was on the other side of the station. Although this Station has a long history, it has only six platforms. It didn't take much time to cross in a row.

When I followed the flow of people out of the station building, there was a little square with a lot of people milling around. The area in front of the station with stalls is a bit like a fair. There were also many taxis parked waiting for customers. On the other side of the station, there were three-wheeled taxis called Bajaj, but waiting for passengers on this side were shared-ride taxis called Ankot. Ankot, like Bajaj, is full of blue vehicles. In Jakarta, are cars that carry passengers such as taxis supposed to be blue?

There were several wagon taxis parked in front of the station with men in the driver's and passenger seats, opening the back door and waiting for the passengers to arrive. The one perched on the passenger seat was probably literally an assistant. The fluffy attitude didn't look like that of a customer.
