Bekasi KRL to change route via Pasar Senen to Jakarta Kota next month
The Jakarta Post
Jakarta’s commuter train (KRL) operator KAI Commuter Jabodetabek (KCJ) plans to redirect its Bekasi, West Java, to Jakarta’s Kota Station route through Pasar Senen Station from Manggarai in April to reduce the density of passengers at Manggarai.
KCJ spokesperson Eva Chairunnisa said that some trips would be redirected through Pasar Senen and continue to Kampung Bandan Station and then on to Kota.
“This is the strategy to reduce density in Manggarai Station. The route remains the same [from Bekasi to Jakarta Kota], hence the passengers do not have to worry. We’ll announce the route change before the departures,” Eva said Monday, as quoted by kompas.com.
Manggarai station is the biggest transit station for the KRL in Greater Jakarta.
The operator was scheduled to announce the details of the plan to the public on Thursday, Eva added.
Currently Manggarai Station is being renovated with the intention of laying a double track system to separate intercity trains from the KRL line connecting Greater Jakarta. The station is also being prepared for connection to Soekarno-Hatta International Airport. (wnd/dmr)
