Courtesy of LRT CITYThe much-awaited light rapid transit (LRT) and MRT development now under way has lured developers to build residential properties using the transit-oriented development (TOD) concept.

The first phase of the LRT project covers 43.5 kilometers connecting Bekasi-Cawang, Cibubur-Cawang and Cawang-Dukuh Atas in Central Jakarta. The first phase of the MRT project covers 16 km, 10 km of which is an elevated rail with a depot in Lebak Bulus, South Jakarta, and the remaining 6 km is an underground rail that terminates at the Hotel Indonesia traffic circle.

When completed, the LRT and MRT public rail services are expected to change the lives of Jakartans, especially in their day-to-day transportation habits. The availability of the LRT and MRT is expected to prompt a shift in transportation use, from private vehicles to public transportation services.

Jaka...
