After visiting TVM at one of these stops or stations, follow these steps.

  • Click ‘Beli Kartu’ (Buy Card) on TVM;
  • Read the terms carefully. Then, click Lanjut (Continue);
  • Select the desired JakLingko card merchant. Available merchants are Mandiri, BNI, and Bank DKI Jakarta;
  • Select a payment method. You can choose to pay by cash, debit, or scan a QR code. The TVM screen will show the total amount you have to pay. If you choose to pay with cash, make sure your money is in a denomination between IDR 10,000, IDR 20,000 or IDR 50,000 and is not damaged.
  • Complete payment. If the transaction is successful, take the JakLingko card that comes out of the TVM. You can access your transaction e-receipt via the barcode that appears on the TVM screen.

As of January 2023, you will be charged IDR 40,000 to buy one JakLingko card. However, you also have a top up balance of IDR 15,000, which means the card is only worth IDR 25,000.

JakLingko Innovation: The App, IDR 10,000 Integration Fee, and many more

Apart from digital payments via JakLingko cards, PT JakLingko Indonesia is also developing several innovations that can make it easier for users to use public transportation. For example, the JakLingko application. The JakLingko application offers various services, such as payment transactions using QR codes, checking routes and destinations for transportation modes in real time, even for activities outside of JakLingko transportation, such as providing entrance tickets to various events, paying electricity bills and cellphone credit.

Another innovation from JakLingko is integration rates. Integration tariffs are costs incurred when you take more than one JakLingko transportation (MRT Jakarta, LRT Jakarta, TransJakarta, MikroTrans, etc.) with a maximum fare of only IDR 10,000. You can only be charged this integration rate if you change modes with an initial fixed fee of IDR 2,500 and a per kilometer rate of IDR 250. By using this integration rate, you will save more on mobility with JakLingko!

So, how can you enjoy JakLingko integration rates? If you buy a destination ticket using more than one type of public transportation via the JakLingko application, the fare you will automatically get is the integrated tariff. However, please remember, travel tickets purchased via the JakLingko application will expire at 03.00 a.m.

Not only via the application, you can also enjoy integration rates by using Electronic Money Cards issued by banks, such as e-money, Brizzi, Tap Cash, Flazz, JakCard, and others. Integration rates using an Electronic Money Card are only valid for 180 minutes.

That’s how to get a JakLingko card along with other related information. Let’s buy the card and travel with JakLingko!
