As of Oct. 8, state-run commuter line operator PT Kereta Cepat Indonesia (KCI) will expand its service to Cikarang station in Bekasi, West Java, targeting 1.2 million passengers per day in 2019, up from 1 million passengers this year.

KCI spokesperson Eva Chairunisa said in a statement that there would be 32 trips per day serving passengers from Jakarta Kota Station in West Jakarta to Cikarang Station, and vice versa.

The first train will depart from Cikarang at 4:45 a.m., while the last one will leave at 7:32 p.m. On the other side, the first commuter line train from Jakarta Kota to Cikarang will leave at 5:41 a.m., and will end at 5:46 p.m.

The fare will be Rp 5,000 (37 US cents) for the 44-kilometer journey. The trip will take about 90 minutes.

“To support the commuter line operation to Cikarang, the government has built two new stations namely Bekasi Timur and Cibitung,” Eva said, adding that another station, namely Tambun Station, was currently under construction.
