Bisnis, JAKARTA — The inauguration of the Jabodebek Light Rail Transit (LRT) on Monday (8/28/2023) has not completely resolved Jakarta’s traffic problem. There are still twists and turns to go through to garner public interest in using public transportation.

LRT joins the ranks of public transports in the capital which already include TransJakarta, MikroTrans, Electric Trains (KRL), Jakarta Mass Rapid Transit (MRT), and Jakarta LRT, on top of older transports like microlets and app-based two-wheeled and four-wheeled transportation modes.

All these types of public transportation connect the capital city with satellite cities such as Bogor, Depok, Tangerang, and Bekasi. However, the fact remains that traffic congestion persists in Jakarta. Hence, where lies the issue?

Data from the Ministry of Transportation found that in major cities like Jakarta, Bandung, and Medan, the reliance on public transportation for daily activities remains below 20 percent, much lower compared to Singapore and Tokyo, which stand at 50 percent.
