Several improvements in Jakarta commuter train services have led to an increasing number of passengers, an executive has said.

Jakarta commuter line operator PT KAI Commuter Jabodetabek (KCJ) director Muhammad Nurul Fadhila said on Wednesday that the number of commuter line passengers had reach 1 million as of April 8.  

“The 1 million [passengers] is a reflection of people’s trust and appreciation toward PT KCJ, which always tries to improve its services and transport capacity,” he said as quoted by kompas.com on Wednesday.

On average, 950,000 people board commuter trains daily. Over the last month, higher passenger numbers were seen at all stations Fadhila added.

KCJ has been operating more trains with 12 cars since early 2016.  

KCJ also cooperated with state-owned railway operator KAI to improve public facilities at train stations.

The flow of passengers at train stations was also improved with the extension of platforms and halls, as well as the construction of an overpass in Tanah Abang and underpasses at six stations.

“Our aim is to serve 1.2 million passengers in 2019,” said Fadhila. (mrc)
