For those of you who are still unfamiliar and curious, here are some facts about the LRT Jabodebek that will fascinate you. Let's read below!

Operated Without a Train Operator

Trains are usually operated by train operators. However, LRT Jabodebek actually uses the Communications-Based Train Control(CBTC) system with Grade of Automation (GoA) level 3 operational automation.

The CBTC system can accurately determine the train's position through two-way communication, ensuring a safe distance between trains. The train detects its position using Wayside Radio Set (WRS) on the tracks and its components, connected to the Operation Control Center (OCC). The OCC controls the train without a train operator. Then, the GoA level 3 system operates automatically to reduce the potential for accidents due to human error. This operation improves the punctuality of train schedules.

The train still has a Train Attendant who will control the train if needed. The use of the GoA system was established by the Ministry of Transportation through the Minister of Transportation Decree Number KP 765 of 2017.

Safety in the LRT Jabodebek is protected by Automatic Train Protection (ATP) and Interlocking & Zone Controller. Both protections are useful to prevent routing errors and to distribute authorisation for train operation control.


Made in Indonesia

The Jabodebek LRT is a product of PT INKA (Industri Kereta Api) from Madiun, Indonesia. This is also one of the government's efforts to empower the domestic industry.
