Jakarta: The long-anticipated sky bridge that connects LRT Jakarta Velodrome Station to the Transjakarta Pemuda bus stop in Rawamangun, East Jakarta, was opened to the public on Friday, marking the official integration of the two city-owned transportation services aimed to facilitate passengers.

The sky bridge provides connectivity for passengers travelling with LRT Jakarta, which spans 5.8km from Kelapa Gading in North Jakarta to the Velodrome in East Jakarta, to get on Transjakarta service to reach Dukuh Atas in Central Jakarta.

“The connectivity also boosts route integration between LRT Jakarta and Transjakarta, for example, to Corridor 4 of Transjakarta, which serves Pulo Gadung to Dukuh Atas,”‌ said PT LRT Jakarta president director Allan Tandiono on Friday as reported by kompas.com.

The integration could also cut travel time to less than one hour for Kelapa Gading residents to reach Dukuh Atas. In the largest transportation hub in Jakarta, passengers may then continue their trip to any destination with other means of public transportation in Dukuh Atas.

The sky bridge operates in accordance with LRT Jakarta operational hours, from 5.30am to 11pm everyday.

A free public trial for LRT Jakarta began on June 11. The trial aims to ensure the operational readiness of the light rail public transportation.

Despite the completion of the facilities, the Jakarta administration has yet to announce when it will be officially open to the public. — The Jakarta Post/Asia News Network
