Indonesian term or phrase: angkot
theses are like smaller vans and mini buses that go on set routes on smaller and quieter roads. They seat 9-12 people depending on the type. Students in uniform also pay less for any distance. The beginning and end points of the routes are visible on the front and back of each bus, along with a route number.

angkot


Explanation:
angkot

Angkot adalah kendaraan penumpang sejenis minibus atau van kecil yang melalui rute jalan-jalan yang agak kecil dan tidak begitu ramai. Sesuai jenisnya, kendaraan ini bisa menampung 9 sampai 12 penumpang. Penumpang anak sekolah berseragam membayar ongkos lebih murah untuk tujuan jarak jauh atau dekat. Rute pemberangkatan dan pemberhentian akhir serta nomor rutenya bisa dibaca di bagian depan atau belakang angkot.

Additional notes:
angkot or sometimes angkota is stands for angkutan kota, meaning public transportation in towns/cities.

It is one of transportation means in most cities of Indonesia. We have also taksi for taxi, bis for bus, kereta api for train.

As a comparison, we have also angdes that stands for angkutan desa, that is the same public transportation operating especially in village areas.
