Indonesian bicycle taxis face uphill battle

From http://english.aljazeera.net

“Ojeks”, or bicycle taxis, were once a common sight in Indonesia’s capital, Jakarta.

But as cars and buses have become cheaper, the ojek transport industry†has†gone into decline, and there are now just a few hundred riders left.

Al Jazeera caught up with one of the riders who is†finding it difficult to make ends meet.

 

“Bicycle is anti-pollution but the rest of the vehicles are not. we are just right behind them!” †Said the bicycle taxi rider.

The last†sentence touches me the most:††”I want to just enjoy my life, just let it flow!”
