The Southeast Asian country has had less time than usual to arrange the Games after standing in as host after Vietnam pulled out in 2014 citing budget issues over the event, which is second only to the Olympics in size and participation figures. Organisers had previously noted concerns aired during rehearsal events over transport in Jakarta’s notorious traffic and some spectators complained about access to venues around the Gelora Bung Karno stadium complex. “Transportation between venues within the stadium itself is lacking, because we can’t bring our own vehicles. So we’re wasting time going to venues,” said basketball fan Taufik Sigar. There have also been complaints over obtaining tickets and a seemingly clunky system that requires online buyers to then queue up to pick up the tickets themselves. Wina, a Jakarta-based employee and a sports fan who bought 22 Asian Games tickets, told Reuters she had struggled to get refunds following changes made to the … [Read more...] about Some grumbles over tickets, transport as Indonesia works on fixes
