From 19 August to 2 September, the LRT will be open to the public throughout the Asian Games, free of charge. Passenger conditions will be restricted in every trip to around 50-100 persons.

I think it was taken on off-peak hours. Since Palembang isn't yet quite a big city (it has only around 1.5 million inhabitants) and it has too few tourist attractions to speak of, you can expect aside from the peak hours the locals are either at school or work.

driving hours and frequency were horrendously limited. In the earliest months the service discontinued after 16:30/17:00 depending on location, which was early in the evening rush. Now that has improved so the last train will always depart after 19:00, but frequency is still rather limited, with irregular headways between 30-60 minutes.

In these early months you couldn't use it for normal round-trips for work which is a reason to remain empty. The price is 5-10k rupiah (comparable to Jakarta's MRT) which most of the time is reasonable but requires quite some subsidies.

Palembang LRT on www.urbanrail.net

Blog description on urbanrail.net

Palembang is one of the two great historic cities of Indonesia (Yogyakarta being the other) although it is today a modern city and the second largest in Sumatra. Although being only the ninth largest city in Indonesia, it is the first in the country to operate a Metro - the result of the city co-hosting the 2018 Asian Games. Although there was some interest in the Indonesian media, it is fair to say that a rather strange, underwhelming fanfare has greeted the arrival of the country’s first Metro. This is because of a splintered opening, whereby the line ran briefly for the Asian Games in August 18 for athletes and was plagued by technical difficulties, and then subsequently it offered a very limited operation until ‘full’ service (see below) began at the end of November. Moreover, the line is branded as LRT, even though it has all the attributes of a Light Metro. I am sure when the Jakarta MRT opens next March, there will be much more media exposure.

Line: The single line is 22.3km (revenue Km) and runs on elevated viaduct (1067 gauge-third rail power), hosting 13 stations on its weaving route from the airport (Bandara) in a south-easterly direction to DJKA. Bandara station is attached to the airport terminal via a large connector building, although signage in the terminal for arriving passengers is limited and even outside (where access to the connector building is gained) the signage brings confusion. This station is different from all others on the line with stub platforms and a bright interesting canvas roof design.

The line runs very slowly as it leaves the airport in an eastward direction before negotiating a sharp curve to head southwest to Asrama Haji (5.5km), followed by a further slow turn to set the line on its south eastward trajectory. The line is very very slow in this initial section despite having few stations - Punti Kayu (woods/copse) is 8.4km from the airport. Station gaps diminish from here as urban density grows but speeds on the straight section do not increase greatly and slow down again around the Demang-Dishub kink. It is here when the line has a more truly urban feel and offers some interesting views, compared to the semi-rural feel in the north. The viaduct runs close to buildings and is higher in this central section with Cinde and Ampera the most central stations. This section also brings a little speed to the running before the line crosses the Musi next to the famed road bridge with good views of the river activity. Urban density then again diminishes (as does the train speed) as the line runs to the sporting facilities around Jakabaring. There are long dwell times at most stations and the entire journey takes 1h02. With average speeds of 22kph, this is a very slow service, the line is quite juddery and the ‘flange squeal’ on the bends is deafening at times.

Stations: With the exception of the airport station as mentioned above, all others are identical structures with ground-level ticket hall supported by broad pillars, a ticket office (no machines), rudimentary turnstile barriers and basic directional signage. Escalators or stairs lead to the side platforms. These are quite narrow and basic with limited seating (but more than enough for current passenger numbers), a basic line map and RTI board - there are no station name plates on the platform. The RTI board does not show next train but every train departure, such is the limited service. Platforms are built for five-car trains and so the current three-car service stops at the front end of the platform (to note that trains crawl into stations very slowly). Stations have smart bowed roofs, supported by beams painted in different bright colours. These colours add something to what is generally a quite bright, but basic and unadorned environment. The stations are supported by an army of staff and security - and at most stations these are more numerous than passengers.

Trains: The Palembang LRT uses Indonesian built PT INKA stock, operated as articulated three-car units, the middle car being slightly longer than the end carriages with luggage racks. The trains have a white exterior with black streamlined frontage and blue and orange stripes below the side windows. The interior has bright blue cushioned seating, with rudimentary strip map above the door (this has coloured dots below the station name representing the colours of the station support beams. There is also a basic LCD screen at carriage ends which plays loud stirring music and there is also a little first aid cupboard! Electronic and audio information is in Bahasa only. The trains are bright and clean, no doubt helped by the fact that there are few passengers and that each train has a cleaning crew who wipe doors, walls and floors as the train moves along the route.

Operations: The LRT is operated by the national rail company, PT Kereta Api and is maintained by an army of staff at stations and on trains - as these are Indonesians, they are naturally humble, warm and friendly. Services run from 0615 to 1800 (early finish) and have irregular headways – these normally being around 35mins, although there are some shorter headways (20mins) in the afternoon, but overall there are only 22 services in each direction, each day. Tickets cost 10000 rupiah to/from Bandara and 5000 between other stations. In addition, passengers have to purchase a 25000 Rupiah travel card. This means for the occasional user, a one-way ticket from the airport costs 35000 RPH (€2.12) which is very expensive by Indonesian standards (a Jakarta suburban rail ticket is approx €0.20). On most of the route there were few passengers and a combination of several factors (speed/infrequency/cost) contribute to these very low patronage rates.

Summary: A new metro and a new metro country - it is a compliment to Indonesia that it is finally developing its urban rail environment and I hope that the Palembang system eventually becomes a robust, well used system. But at the moment this is sadly quite a woeful Metro. It is incredibly slow, infrequent, expensive, underused and lacks any atmosphere or elegance as a system.

It is not the ticket that is too expensive relative to the people's income. Many people outside of Indonesia underestimate the extreme affordability of motorcycle there. There is nothing like anywhere it in the world, perhaps only Vietnam comes close. That's why Jakarta still has massive traffic jam despite having sizable train lines and bus routes (FYI the latter now reaches almost every corner of the agglomeration at relatively affordable fare). Even in Palembang, the most deprived person or household can easily acquire one and abuse it even at walking distance because it cost next to nothing to operate one. Moreover the city itself, as seen in the photos in previous posts, is extremely sprawling. It makes even the likes of Phoenix and Accra pale in comparison in this regard.

I think even if they need to keep the price that way, at least they need to introduce special fare for students. Another important incentive is that since it consists of only one line, the existing feeder bus services (TransMusi) have to be fully integrated into the system. I think by boosting the bus ridership, the metro ridership would follow suit and it would be sensible enough to increase the frequency and car speed to that of normal metro. Currently, there is an integrated fare between the metro and bus services but it's far from enough because the user ends up paying hefty fare (which is 10-15 times more expensive than using motorcycle covering similar distance). The local government also has no idea to run a transportation network that makes common sense though. They don't even bother to find revenue outside from tickets and subsidy, such as renting tenants at stations and even using spaces at the stations and trains (including its livery) as advertisement spaces. The payment of the fare also doesn't help. The operator should've take note from Jakarta's and Semarang's bus and train networks, of which its fares can be paid by every available electronic money. Perhaps the most viable option is leaving the management to KCI (the company that runs Jakarta's pretty efficient commuter rail network) and incorporating TransMusi as subsidiary. Therefore, the feeder bus could be used free of charge and there is a strong incentive for the locals to use the metro and leave their mopeds and cars behind.
