Train of KRL meets KA Bandara at Duri Station

KRL is a rail system that serves for people in Greater Jakarta or JABODETABEK. KRL stands for Kereta Rel Listrik or Electrified Train. This system offers 6 integrated commuter lines with 80 stations and stretching to more than 400km. I, myself love to travel by using local public transportation. Hence, this is the service that I really looking forward to while traveling in Jakarta.

Route of KRL

The headway of the train is 5-10 minutes and for me, it is very convenient. There are 3 types of ticketing which are Tiket Harian Berjaminan (THB) or Single-Journey Card, Kartu Multiple Trip(KMT) or Multiple Journey Ticket and banks-issued cards such as Mandiri, BNI and BCA. You may get the tickets at the counters and vending machine C-VIM.

There is also coaches for ladies at the first and last coach for every train. This would enable the ladies to travel safely and conveniently.

At every station, there are a lot of shops and food places for you to choose and at the outside area of the stations, you may find a lot of local traders selling their foods, daily items, and clothes. Full of merriment!!!
