MRT Jakarta Beautiful Views on Flyover

The following YouTube video records the beautiful scenery of Jakarta during a public trial of Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) or also called Integrated Moda Raya.

In this first phase the MRT route that has been operating is from Lebak Bulus to the Indonesian Hotel Roundabout and vice versa, as shown below.

The underground route (subway) is illustrated in red, of course there are no scenery to see there, only the scenery inside each station. The subway stations are: Bunderan Hotel Indonesia, Dukuh Atas, Setiabudi, Bendungan Hilir, Istora, Senayan.

Flyover route is marked in blue. On this route there are many beautiful sights that are worth recording. The flyover stations are: Sisingamangaraja, Blok M, Blok A, Haji Nawi, Cipete Raya, Fatmawati, Lebak Bulus.

I start riding at Bendungan Hilir station and get off at the Hotel Indonesia roundabout. From the Hotel Indonesia roundabout ride again to Lebak Bulus, this is the farthest distance and it takes about 30 minutes with a distance of about 15 kilometers. From Lebak Bulus, I ride again to Sisingamangaraja.

As quoted from Jakartamrt, carriage or train in rail transport industry is called rolling stock. It has dimensions of 20 meters in length, 2.9 meters in width, and 3.9 meters in height. With a dominant color of blue and metallic gray, the carriages are made of stainless steel with an empty weight per train reaching 31 to 35 tons, made by Nippon Sharyo, Japan

The inside of the train is shown in the photo below. The train has a maximum carrying capacity of 332 people. In this phase 1, PT MRT Jakarta provides 16 trains. One series consists of six trains, the carrying capacity of one series reaches 1,950 people.

It is estimated to be able to carry more than 174 thousand people per day. Headway or time between vehicles is five minutes during rush hour, and about ten minutes outside rush hour.

The following photo shows when the train is above the TB Simatupang highway, the train is heading to Fatmawati station from Blok M. BPJS Cilandak employment office is located right under the Fatmawati station, the address is: Jl. R.A.Kartini No.18. Starting in 2018, the employment claim is processed online only, the employee then goes to the BPJS office according to the online queue schedule to complete the document. With the MRT, it will be easier to come to the BPJS office. Fatmawati station is also close to the bus stop for the Soetta-Cinere Airport Bus route, before the gas station.

The photo below is a scenere or railway depot at Lebak Bulus. Lebak Bulus station is close to Transmart Lebak Bulus (Carrefour), and Grand Mercure Simatupang hotel (Mercure Lebak Bulus).

During public trials (Uji Coba Publik), MRT tickets can be purchased at, and it is free to ride. The following photo shows the mark on passenger during a public trial.

When fully operational, the ticket can be purchased at the Ticket Office and at the Automatic Ticketing Machine (Ticket Vending Machine) as shown below.

Also read Cinere Bellevue bus to Soekarno Hatta airport (Soetta), via: Pangkalan Jati, Pondok Labu, One Bellpark, Fatmawati, Jakarta Outer Ring Road (JORR).
