How was your experience after riding the LRT train, Sir?

President of the Republic of Indonesia (Joko Widodo)

Yes, I, along with Ministers, rode the LRT train from the Harjamukti station to TMII station. For these 9 kilometers, it takes 12 minutes at the speed of 80 kilometers per hour. It was very fast and without locomotive engineer. It is also our pleasure, our proud that the LRT was manufactured by state-owned train manufacturer PT Industri Kereta Api (INKA) including the unmanned train system.

All was manufactured by PT INKA. The train with a capacity of 420 passengers, train station with a capacity of 520 passengers are expected to be operational in June-July 2023 along with the [Jakarta-Bandung] high-speed railway.
