JAKARTA, - The ridership of Jakarta Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) stood at 19.7 million in 2022, Jakarta-owned enterprise PT MRT Jakarta said on Tuesday, Jan. 10.

To increase ridership, PT MRT Jakarta collaborated with several parties, especially from the tourism industry, such as culinary, attraction, health, and education sectors, shopping centers, and offered ticket promotions at tourism destinations.

Collaboration with feeder public transportation providers, such as online motorcycle taxis and the bus rapid transit system TransJakarta, encouraged an increase in Jakarta MRT’s ridership.

"The presence of feeder transportation had impacted not only on increasing the number of ridership, but also supported the culture of ride-sharing," he said.

The feeder transportation providers contributed 13 percent to the total ridership figure of MRT Jakarta.

Moreover, transit-oriented development (TOD) at several MRT Phase-1 stations on the north-south corridor also contributed to optimizing access to public transportation.

MRT Jakarta passengers can use the MRT Jakarta application on smartphones to buy tickets, use the points to claim promotions, watch movies, and play mobile games.
