Bisnis, JAKARTA—The government's achievements in establishing mass rapid transit and light rail transit systems in the capital city, as well as high-speed rail connections between Jakarta and Bandung, have fueled its aspirations to expand the use of rail-based public transportation in various regions.

The Ministry of Transportation emphasizes the importance of developing mass transportation to cultivate a new societal culture. This becomes particularly significant because several Indonesian cities grapple with congestion and air pollution stemming from the extensive use of private vehicles.

Transportation Minister Budi Karya Sumadi aims to promote the adoption of public transportation, such as electric rail trains (KRL), mass rapid transit (MRT), and light rail transit (LRT), in urban areas. These systems will be complemented by bus rapid transit (BRT) networks to ensure comprehensive urban connectivity.

Budi underlines that creating a robust mass transportation network is imperative. Without such development, the cost of traffic congestion could amount to hundreds of trillions of rupiah each year.
