Phase two of the light rapid transit (LRT) railway project connecting the Jakarta International Velodrome in Rawamangun, East Jakarta, and Dukuh Atas in South Jakarta will have stations integrated with Transjakarta bus shelters.
PT Jakarta Propertindo project director Iwan Takwin said the three LRT stations at the Velodrome, Pulomas and Kelapa Gading depots in East and North Jakarta, respectively, will have a skybridge connecting them to bus shelters.
"The LRT is sticking to its concept of integration with other modes of transportation," Iwan said on Tuesday as quoted by kompas.com.
PT LRT Jakarta president director Allan Tandiono has mentioned a similar plan.
Velodrome Station, for instance, would be connected to Transjakarta's Corridor 4 (Pulogadung-Dukuh Atas), with the nearest shelter being on Jl. Pemuda, Allan said.
"A Transjakarta shelter already exists there, just 100 meters away from the [Velodrome] station. We'll connect them with a skybridge," he said.
The integration is expected to shorten commuters’ travel time. The trip from Kelapa Gading to Dukuh Atas should take 45 minutes, he added. (vla)
