The Greater Jakarta LRT serving Jakarta, Bogor, Depok and Bekasi will open to the public in July 2022, property developer and state-owned construction firm PT Adhi Karya has confirmed.

“Taking into account testing and commissioning processes and GoA 3 [Global Automatic Train Control], operational trials, then the Greater Jakarta LRT will begin commercial operations in July 2022,” the company’s operational director, Pundjung Setya Brata, said as quoted by kompas.com

The Greater Jakarta LRT, not to be confused with LRT Jakarta that currently only consists of the Velodrome-Kelapa Gading line, is being built and maintained by state-owned company PT Adhi Karya, with its trains to be manufactured by state-owned company PT Industri Kereta Api Indonesia (INKA).

The first phase of the Greater Jakarta LRT development that will span 44.43 kilometers is 74.38 complete.

The first line, serving Cawang to Cibubur in East Jakarta, is 88.82 percent complete.
