Having a home with a short distance from the office is a luxury. I’ve heard the phrase like it.
Everybody have a standard about how many kilometers to define the distance is far or near. For me, 12 kilometers is a near distance. Especially when compared to where I live a few years ago which is about 30 kilometers.
If I use public transport to go to work, I have to use public transportation two times. First, I have to use Mikrolet. Second, I use TransJakarta. It might take about 45 minutes. Even more. Everyday I spend about Rp. 13,000 for using them.
But I rarely use public transportation when going to the office. Jams and length of waiting for TransJakarta are two things that make me more comfortable for use private vehicle. A motorcycle. I used to call it the nickname “Si Eneng”. A nickname that already spread in the internet. It is odd. A manual motorcycle, called as “Si Eneng”. Maybe “The Red” is more suitable. : D
Riding “The Red” can reduce the travel time from home to office and from office to home. It only take less than 30 minutes. The expenditure for fuel also cheaper. For the fuel, I always fill 10 liters for using “The Red” in 15 working days or three weeks.
Perhaps the comparison of time and the cost is less relevant, because there are still other costs should I pay when using “The Red” like for regular service fee and tax. The most expensive is the purchase price.
However, I still feel more comfortable riding “The Red” as a mean of transportation compared to using public transport.
