State-owned commuter line operator PT Kereta Commuter Indonesia (KCI) has added nine more trips to a route connecting Rangkasbitung and Serpong in Banten, Parung Panjang in Bogor, West Java, and Tanah Abang in Central Jakarta.

The new travel times are available starting on Sunday.

KCI spokesperson Anne Purba said the additional services would accommodate the increasing number of commuters taking the route, which went up to 54 million people last year.

“The nine additional trips will use an SF 10 train,” Anne said in a statement on Saturday, adding that the trains have a total capacity of around 2,500 passengers per trip.

KCI previously announced plans to add more trips, trains and tracks to its network to serve up to 1.5 million passengers per day this year.

KCI president director Wiwik Widayanti said late last year that the company served up to 1 million passengers on 958 trips per day. (rfa)
