Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – Just a few days after it was inaugurated, the Jabodebek LRT experienced problems on Wednesday (30/8/2023), namely that suddenly the electricity on the train stopped. Many passengers complained about this until it went viral on social media.
Spokesperson for the Minister of Transportation, Adita Irawati, admitted that the implementation of the Jabodebek LRT still faced a number of obstacles. Currently, a follow-up process is being carried out by relevant stakeholders, which is still ongoing under the direct supervision of the Ministry of Transportation through the Directorate General of Railways.
“There are four main problems that we have received reports about, namely related to train doors, passenger information screens, electricity, and the operating system which are being handled by INKA, the Jabodebek LRT Division of PT KAI, as well as related stakeholders, and are targeted for completion in early September to the end of October ,” said Adita in Jakarta, Friday (8/9/2023).
Currently there are 12 train sets in operation and ready to serve passengers. The number of trains will gradually be increased until a total of 31 trains are in operation, with a formation of 27 trains being operated to serve passengers, 2 trains undergoing heavy maintenance, and 2 trains being put on standby as reserves.

“With this number of trains, currently the Jabodebek LRT will be operated from 05.00 WIB to 18.58 WIB with a headway of 10-20 minutes,” said Adita.
The Jabodebek LRT is targeted to operate according to the ideal operating pattern with longer operating hours and a headway of up to 4-8 minutes when the entire train series has been run in stages so that the public is expected to continue to monitor the Jabodebek LRT schedule.
The number of passengers served by the Jabodebek LRT reached 331,947 people. This shows very high interest in trying the Jabodebek LRT and hopes that the presence of this mode of transportation will be enjoyed by more people.
