Most public transportation in the center of the city is done with cycle rickshaws and horse carriages.­ Locals seem to be very attached to those traditional (and environment friendly) modes of transportation.­

Private transportation is mostly by motorcycle, like in the rest of Indonesia.­ There is no legal limit to the number of passengers per motorbike, but you rarely see more than 5 people on a bike.­

Jogja was the starting point of my 2-month motorcycle trip around Indonesia (Java, Bali, Lombok, Sumbawa and Flores Islands).­ This is here that I rented a motorcycle (a Honda Supra 125cc semi-auto for $65 a month).­ But before hitting the road, I spent a week in Jogja, a lively city that has a very unique atmosphere and a lot of traditions.­
