Since 2004, Jakarta, while under the governance of Sutiyoso,
has built a new bus system known as "TransJakarta" or "Busway" and
is planning to increase the number of Busway routes.
The city had hoped to establish its newest transportation system,
the Jakarta Monorail, in 2007, but the project has been delayed and its
completion date is uncertain.
Jakarta also is the location of the Indonesia Stock Exchange and the
National Monument, Tugu Monas.
