When you see a green color bus, it's Trans Jogja!A very cheap transportation to go around Yogyakarta city.It costs only 1,500 rupiah@person (1 USD = 8,900 rupiah/November 2010).There is a bus stop in the location of Adisucipto International Airport. Asked someone there where you can find Trans Jogja, and they will show you the location of the bus stop.From Adisutjipto, you can go to Malioboro (West route) or Prambanan (East Route).
Prambanan Express known as Pramex by locals.Its routes goes from Jogja to Solo (Central Java).The ticket costs 9,000 rupiah (nine thousand rupiah), about USD 1 dollar. (Current price on November 2010).There's nearby station from Yogyakarta Adisutjipto International Airport, known as Maguwo Station.Schedules:Pramex Arrival at Maguwo Station to Tugu Station (Malioboro - Yogyakarta):06.45 AM / 07.55 AM / 08.35 AM (weekends only) / 09.50 AM / 11.40 AM / 12.50 PM / 13.40 PM / 14.45 PM (weekends only) / 16.20 PM / 17.20 PM / 19.15 PM / 19.55 PM ** It only takes a couple of minutes (around 5 minutes) to arrive at the center of Yogyakarta City.Pramex arrival at Maguwo Station to Balapan Station (Solo, Central Java):05.45 AM / 06.45 AM / 08.45 AM / 09.45 AM / 10.45 AM / 11.45 AM / 13.45 PM (weekends only) / 14.45 PM / 16. 25 PM / 17.45 PM / 18.25 PM (weekends only) / 19.15 PM** 1 hour to go to...

Yogyakarta to Bali (Denpasar) by bus
The bus journey from Jogja to Denpasar (Bali)is a long one and can take upto 16-18 hrs. You have a choice of buses available-from cheap to luxury airconditioned bus options. Go for the luxury (A/C bus) option. The bus will go from Jogja to the port city of Nganjuk/Ketapang near Surabaya in eastern Java and then the bus will be loaded onto a ferry which will crossover to Gilimanuk port city of Bali (this happens in the night time). The total one way cost of the luxury bus from Jogja to Denpasar was IDR 120,000 in May 2007.Once your bus sets off in bali, the drive is excellant (early morning hours) and within an hour or so, you will be in Denpasar. Most of the Indonesians will travel by this route to Bali.
