Ok, here Jakarta Commuter Trains from David the Mod

JAKARTA | Public Transport

JAKARTA: PUBLIC TRANSPORT
Greater Jakarta is one of the largest urban agglomerations in the world, with 10.2 million people in the city proper and 28.0 million in the metropolitan area. The city has massive transportation problems, congestion and a lack of public transportation.

Main transportation modes are walking, and private vehicle use (cars and motorcycles). Public transportation consists mainly of angkot (minibuses), ojek (motorcycle taxi) and normal buses and some railway lines. A higher quality public transportation form is the Bus Rapid Transit system called TransJakarta. Construction of a first metro line (MRT Jakarta) is projected to start soon, and there are some other plans, such as additional railway lines and a monorail.

TransJakarta
The Bus Rapid Transit system of Jakarta is called TransJakarta. It is operational since 2004 and by now there are 11 lines in operation, 1 more under construction and 3 more planned. It is the longest BRT system in the world with 172 kilometres, using 520 buses. The TransJakarta buses are widely used but are not able to solve traffic congestion. Although the buses run on seperate lanes, there are problems with private cars and motorcycles using these lanes. Also, at junctions the buses are often in the same traffic jam.



MRT
The MRT Jakarta will consist of two lines with both underground and elevated tracks. Construction for the first north-south line (23.3 km) will start in ... (soon, but not very clear) and the first phase will start operation by the end of 2016. The line would connect Lebak Bulus in South Jakarta with the Hotel Indonesia in Central Jakarta and Kampung Bandan in North Jakarta.

An east-west corridor is targeted to start operation around 2025. The second line would be approximately 87 (!) kilometres, but exact tracing is not clear yet. It would run from Tangerang (west of Jakarta) to Bekasi and Cikarang (east of Jakarta).

More information: JakartaMRT.com



KA Commuter Jabodetabek
The KA Commuter Jabodetabek ("Greater Jakarta Commuter Trains"), previously KRL Jabodetabek ("Greater Jakarta Electric Railway") is the commuter rail network serving Jakarta and surrounding cities. It is a system of six heavily used railway lines. Many problems are encountered, such as overcrowded trains, lack of comfort and safety issues. The tracks have many road crossings, and share tracks are shared with long distance trains.



Soekarno-Hatta Airport Monorail
At the west side of Jakarta, in the cities of Tangerang and South Tangerang, a monorail line is planned, connecting several areas of these cities with Jakarta's international airport. Construction has not started yet, but government officials say construction could be completed by 2014.

Comments: I started this thread since there is no information about Jakarta's transportation system in English at all at this forum. Hundreds of pages have been written about the MRT in the Indonesian forum. Since especially the MRT system is a complex and interesting project, I hope during construction some information and pictures could be provided in here as well.

I added it to the post above. That was what I meant when I mentioned "and some railway lines". The KRL changed its name to KA Commuter now. Concerning those railway lines, there is some news by the way.

Here we go:

TransJakarta (bus rapid transit)
Eleven bus lines, in total 172 kilometres (longest BRT network in the world). On this map line 11 is said to be 'future', but it has been operational since last year. Line 12 will open in December 2012. (Click here for large version of the map)


KA Commuter Jabodetabek (commuter rail)
Six railway lines, in total 235 kilometres. Serving the cities of Jakarta (10m inhabitants), Bekasi (2.5m), Tangerang (2m), Depok (2m) and Bogor (1m) among others.


MRT Jakarta (metro)
This map shows the north-south line, and two proposals for the east-west line. The clear part of the map, from 'Lebak Bulus' to 'Bund. HI', is the first phase that should be operational in 2016. If you compare this to the map of the TransJakarta bus lines: The southern terminal of the line (Lebak Bulus) is also the southern terminal for TJ-line 8. Also the MRT line follows the entire TJ-line 1.

Previously the system was pretty incomprehensible, as there were 37 different lines. Probably one of them did the whole loop also. In that time, from all of the suburbs there were trains to the city centre and some trains skipped certain stations.

Since last year (as indicated on the map) the system is simplified, which means that more people have to change trains, and the trains are slower since they stop at every station. However, the system is more robust and the railway company says it can handle more trains to provide a higher capacity.

It is said that this week it will be announced which consortium will construct the first part of the Jakarta MRT. The first phase of the MRT (the part between Lebak Bulus and Bund. HI in the map above) consists of eight work packages:
  • 3 underground rail construction packages
  • 3 elevated rail construction packages
  • 1 train carriage package
  • 1 system delivery package

This week one of the underground rail construction packages, for the part in the inner city centre between Dukuh Atas and Bund. HI, will be assigned. The value of this package is around 1.5 trillion rupiah (155 million US dollar). Both of the consortia running for this package are a combination of Indonesian state-owned firms and Japanese companies:
  • Obayashi, Shimizu and Wijaya Karya
  • Sumitomo and Hutama Karaya

Japan to Help Build $43 Billion of Projects in Jakarta City

Japan will help Indonesia build 410 trillion rupiah ($43 billion) of infrastructure projects, including roads, railways, harbors, airports and power plants, in Jakarta by 2020.

The two governments approved a master plan for the development of 45 projects today in Tokyo, they said in a joint statement. Construction of 18 priority projects from the total is scheduled to start by the end of 2013, according to the statement.

The two countries signed a memorandum of cooperation in December 2010 to study the plan to develop Jakarta’s metropolitan area. Mitsubishi Corp. (8058), Hitachi Ltd. (6501), JGC Corp. (1963), Taisei Corp. (1801), Chiyoda Corp. (6366) and Nippon Yusen K.K. (9101) were among 11 Japanese companies that participated in drawing up the master plan, Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry said in a statement.

Jakarta Monorail

The new governor of Jakarta, Joko Widodo, has requested a presentation about the abandoned monorail project. Between 2004 and 2008 there have been construction works for a monorail, but because of financial problems the project has been halted and cancelled. Unused pillars for the elevated rail are still standing in Central Jakarta though.

The new governor has now asked the company PT Adhi Karya to give a presentation about the project, and the exact reasons for cancelling it. He hopes that, maybe with some alterations, the project can be revived.

The original Monorail project consisted of two lines; a circle line in Central and South Jakarta, around the CBD, and a line from West to East Jakarta. Together these would be 27 kilometres.
