Crossing the Batanghari River
The other option on how to get across is to drive your car or motorcycle to the far east or west ends of the city and cross on the bridges at those locations. It will take you at least 35 minutes to go around using the bridges. To take your motorcycle across using a boat, the cost will be a little over $1.00 USD (Rp10.000). To travel across yourself, without a motorcycle, the cost is $0.20 (Rp2,000).
There’s no insurance if your bike falls in, or the boat sinks. : ^ )
