Commuter line operator PT Kereta Commuter Indonesia (KCI) has launched free Wi-Fi for passengers in stations and on its trains in the Jakarta-Bogor-Depok-Tangerang-Bekasi area.
Launched on Wednesday at Juanda Station, Central Jakarta, the service is available at 46 stations in Jakarta and will be followed by 37 stations in Greater Jakarta on March 10.
Wiwik Widayanti, director of PT KCI, told Antara news agency on Wednesday that hopefully all stations would provide the service in the near future.
To use the service, passengers need to register and then they will be able to access free internet for 30 minutes. After the allowed time, passengers will need to re-login.
“We hope to expand the service to trains and stations outside Greater Jakarta, such as the Argo Parahyangan train with the Gambir – Bandung route. We plan to install them after March 10,” said Dadan Rudiansyah, state-owned railway company PT KAI operational region 1 executive vice president. (wng)
