High-Speed Train is on the Way Here

State railway company PT Kereta Api Indonesia plans to operate a high-speed train connecting Jakarta and the capital city of West Java, Bandung.

PT KAI (Indonesia Train Operator) said that the high-speed train would take just 45 minutes to get from Jakarta to Bandung.

Ignasius said tickets for the trip would be available for passengers at Rp 200,000 (US$22), which would make it affordable for many. Director of cooperation at the National Development Planning Agency (Bappenas) Bastari Panji Indra said that the new Jakarta–Bandung line, which would be ready by 2018, would be part of a public transportation network that would connect a new international airport with the Greater Jakarta area.

The new airport would be constructed in Purwakarta, West Java.

Bastari said that the high-speed train would transport passengers between Jakarta and the new airport in Purwakarta in 20 minutes.

The high-speed rail project is expected to cost Rp 56.108 trillion ($6.17 billion).
