Getting Around

Grab and Go-Jek online taxis and ojeks are by far the cheapest and fastest ways of getting around town.

Otherwise, hundreds of angkot zip around Medan's streets and charge 5000Rp to 15,000Rp per ride. A few helpful routes include the white Mr X from Jl SM Raja to Kesawan Sq, Lapangan Merdeka and the train station, and the yellow 64 from Maimoon Palace to Sun Plaza. Becak journeys across the city centre cost between 20,000Rp and 30,000Rp.
