The first phase of Jakarta’s MRT about 16 Km started from Lebak Bulus (South Jakarta) to Hotel Indonesia (Center Jakarta) and operated at 2019.

There are 13 station from Lebak Bulus to Hotel Indonesia, some elevated tracks and some underground tracks.

To enter the station gate, they use e-ticket or they accept e-money from local bank.

If you got problem with the e-card, there are helpers to solving your e-card problem.

Some MRT station is connected with other Jakarta’s Transportation System as Trans Jakarta and Commuter Line, too

To find the MRT station, just look around and find the 2 types of MRT entrance, the elevated station and underground station.

Although Jakarta is hot, it’s cool inside the wagon because all the wagon are fully air condition and it’s clean, makes you more comfortable.

It take 30 minutes from Lebak Bulus to Hotel Indonesia compares hours if your rides by car because of traffic jam.

The MRT is waiting for your ride, so have a nice trip with Jakarta’s MRT to eliminated the Jakarta’s air polution and saving time from Jakarta’s hustle and bustle traffics.
