. . . Cianjur . . .

Cianjur is a city with a population of about 150,000. The city is located in the valley, about halfway between the Puncak mountain pass and the provincial capital city Bandung. Cianjur itself is the capital of the regency of Cianjur, which stretches from the border of the Greater Jakarta metropolitan area in the north to the Indian Ocean coast in the south.

Cianjur railway station, served by only three trains per day.

Cianjur is along Indonesia’s National Road 3, also known as the Southern Java route. The city is about 30 km northeast of Sukabumi, and 45 km west of the Cipularang toll road with quick connections to Bandung and Cikampek. Traditionally, Cianjur was on the main road from Jakarta to Bandung (the Great Post Road via the Puncak pass). However, since toll roads have been built most people don’t drive via Cianjur anymore. In good traffic conditions, to go from Jakarta to Cianjur is still the quickest via the Puncak pass. However, especially on weekends when traffic is seriously congested it may be quicker to take the detour via the toll road (via Cikampek).

Cianjur’s main intercity bus terminal is -6.80311107.17461 Rawabango bus terminal on the eastern side of the city. However, many of the buses do not call at the terminal, but simply drop and pick up passengers in front of the terminal, along the main road (the road from Cianjur in the direction of Bandung).

During daytime, there are regular buses to Cianjur from Jakarta’s Kampung Rambutan bus terminal (East Jakarta). The price of a one-way ticket is Rp25,000 (with airconditioning) and the journey takes about 3 hours if traffic conditions are good. Cianjur is also served frequently by economy class buses on the route from the port of Merak to Bandung, and there are very frequent (during daytime at least 6 per hour) buses of various classes from Bandung via Cianjur to Sukabumi.

The small shuttle buses of Siliwangi Trans also cover the route Bandung-Cianjur-Sukabumi, leaving Bandung every 2 hours from 05:00 to 19:00, with an additional bus at 21:00 on Fridays and Saturdays. In Bandung, shuttle buses depart from the Balubur Town Square shopping centre in North Bandung (☎ +62 22 844 68 648).
