Marking its ninth anniversary, state-run commuter line operator PT KAI Commuter Jabodetabek (KCJ) has changed its name to PT Kereta Commuter Indonesia (KCI). The name change highlights the expansion of the commuter line's service. Now it reaches into Cikarang, Bekasi regency, West Java.

PT KCI president director Muhammad Nurul Fadhila said Wednesday the name change symbolized the company's readiness to cover broader routes. 

"The previous company's name only covered the Jabodetabek area, which is Jakarta, Bogor, Depok, Tangerang and Bekasi. We don't want to create confusion since our line now reaches Rangkasbitung in Banten and Cikarang in Bekasi regency," Fadhila said. 

PT KCI opened up a new route from Tanang Abang to Rangkasbitung in April. It plans to open up a Jakarta Kota to Cikarang station service in October.

With the route expansion, Fadhila said he was optimistic that his company would reach its target of transporting 1.2 million passengers per day in 2019. 

According to the company's data, passenger volumes currently range between 950,000 to 1 million people per day. (rdi)
