Tegal is known as the namesake of the Warung Tegal (usually shortened to Warteg), a type of warung (small restaurant) operated across Indonesia by people from Tegal. Such warung sell rice and Javanese dishes for low prices.
Tegal is along the North Coast Route trunk road (Jalur Pantura). From the west, a tolled motorway connects Jakarta (275 km) and Cirebon (75 km) with Tegal. The toll road ends at Tegal's western outskirts. Towards the east, the trunk road continues to provincial capital Semarang (160 km).
1 Tegal railway station is in the city centre. The station serves about 15 trains per day to Jakarta, and a similar number of trains to Semarang (many of them continuing to East Java). In addition, there are three trains per day to Purwokerto, and one to Bandung (via Cikampek).
