Greater Jakarta LRT​

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Greater Jakarta LRT or Jabodebek LRT is a light rail system currently under construction in Jakarta, the capital city of Indonesia, as well as the adjacent areas of West Java and Banten, both within the Jakarta Metropolitan area. It is being implemented by the central government. To be directly operated by Kereta Api Indonesia (KAI) (rather than by its subsidiary KAI Commuter), the system is planned to connect the Jakarta city center with suburbs in Greater Jakarta such as Bogor, Depok and Bekasi, hence its acronym "Jabodebek".[2]


The project is developed by state owned consortium (PT Adhi Karya/Builder, PT LEN Industri (Electronics), PT INKA (Train maker), and PT KAI (Train operator) ).

Expected to be operated at the same time with Jakarta-Bandung HSR, LRT Development Progress Reaches 87%​

Story from Andhika Prasetyo • 6 hours ago


Greater Jakarta LRT system

Jakarta: President Joko Widodo is optimistic that the Light Rail Transit (LRT) mode of transportation will be able to operate in June 2023. Currently, the progress of infrastructure development has reached 87 percent. Meanwhile, the work that is still being carried out includes the creation of a depot or parking lot and the maintenance of the train.

"We hope that later in June or July 2023, it will be able to operate. This will coincide with the high-speed train," said Jokowi at the Taman Mini LRT Station, Jakarta, Monday, December 26, 2022.

He expressed that confidence after trying the mass transit in person with a limited number of ministers and entourages. From the short experiment, Jokowi felt that the LRT was feasible to run. Some rudimentary technical things, in his opinion, can be fixed in a quick time.

"Earlier I tried the LRT from Harjamukti station (Depok, West Java) to Taman Mini Station (Jakarta). The route is nine kilometers long and is traveled in 12 minutes, with a train speed of 80 kilometers per hour. Very fast and without a machinist," said the former Mayor of Surakarta.

"I was comfortable, fast, and not noisy just now. I think just after the turn, there was a very small sound."

He also admitted that he was proud because the train that will operate later is entirely domestically produced, namely PT INKA. The Company is trusted to build all parts up to the operating system without a machinist.

"We are proud because this train is made by INKA. Everything is made by INKA, including the system without a machinist," concluded Jokowi.

According to him, currently there are only testing questions in cross-services one, two, three, and depots. As for infrastructure, Purnomosidi explained, everything has been completed. "Now we are testing, how to eliminate the role or function of a machinist. We eliminate it, we replace it with a system," he said.

For the cross-service test one, he called it complete. In fact, Purnomosidi said, the train had also been run by President Joko Widodo aka Jokowi at the end of last year. Currently, testing is shifting to cross two services, namely from Cawang Station to Dukuh Atas.

"In parallel, we completed three cross-services, from Cawang to Jatimulya or East Bekasi. We also completed the depot," said Purnomosidi.

He also said that his party is optimistic that in July 2023, according to the target, the Jabodebek LRT can be operated commercially. "In accordance with what President Jokowi said some time ago," Purnomosidi said.

The Jabodebek LRT will be operated using a Communication-Based Train Control (CBTC) system with Grade of Automation (GoA) level 3. The CBTC system is a communication-based train operating system. Thus, the system can operate the train and project the schedule automatically from the operation control center without a machinist.

In addition, Jabodebek LRT stations are spread in strategic locations ranging from residential areas, shopping, to business districts, making it easier for people to use Jabodebek LRT.

"For services, we implement a cashless system using existing transportation electronic money cards. For example, KMT, electronic money cards, or digital wallets or e-wallets," Kuswardojo said.

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The Jakarta Transportation Agency is aiming to serve more passengers across various public transportation in the capital city in 2024. Initially projected to move 3.6 million people (daily) from point A to point B in 2023, the agency aims to serve 3.9 million commuters (daily) next year.

“We continue to increase the quantity and quality of our public transportation,” said the city’s transportation agency head Syafrin Liputo on Thursday.

As a matter of context, there were nearly 3.5 million commuters that used the city’s public transport on a daily basis in 2022.

The city plans to increase integrated hubs between modes of transport from 22 locations to 26 locations in 2024. Electric-powered Transjakarta bus fleet will also be grown to 120 buses next year as the city is also tackling the issue of emissions.

However, only 30 electric buses were operated last year as the agency initially aimed to operate 100 of them. “By the end of this year, we hope 220 electric buses will be operated,” he explained.

MRT Jakarta will also be improved for next year. Currently, the MRT has a total capacity of serving 173,000 passengers on a daily basis and is expected to grow to 260,000 in 2024 as the Phase 2A project is completed.

The LRT Jakarta, which currently is able to accommodate 18,000 daily passengers, will be integrated with Transjakarta buses and is hoped to transport an average of 145,000 people daily.
