The government is considering a request from PT Railink, the company that runs the Jakarta airport train, to have the service extended to Bekasi in West Java.
Currently, the railway trips from Soekarno-Hatta International Airport end at Sudirman Baru Station.
The Transportation Ministry’s railway traffic director, Zulmafendi, said in Bogor, West Java, on Monday that the government needed to study the request, because the route extension would affect many things, including scheduled departures and arrivals.
“The extension is possible. We can arrange it, but we have to view it comprehensively, because there was a problem with signaling. We plan to start discussing the request next week,” said Zulmafendi, as reported by kompas.com.
Based on the existing plan, the airport train will eventually run from Soekarno-Hatta International Airport to Manggarai Station in South Jakarta.
Currently, the journey ends at Sudirman Baru Station, as construction at Manggarai Station is still ongoing.
PT Railink, a subsidiary of state-owned railway operator PT Kereta Api Indonesia (KAI), currently operates only one train with six cars and stops at four stations -- Sudirman Baru, Duri, Batu Ceper and Soekarno-Hatta International Airport.
The fare for a single trip is Rp 70,000 (US$4.9). (bbn)
