Kereta Khusus Wanita
Train company KAI Commuter Jabodetabek (KCJ) is set to launch Indonesia’s first women-only trains on Monday, following the “success” of women-only carriages that commenced operations in 2010.
KCJ spokeswoman Eva Chairunisa said in a press statement on Saturday that eight commuter-line journeys serving Jakarta and its satellite city of Bogor would exclusively serve women from Monday to Saturday, increasing the number of daily trips that KCJ operated to 539.
KCJ is a subsidiary of state-owned train firm Kereta Api Indonesia (KAI). It currently operates 531 train journeys daily connecting Jakarta with its satellite cities of Bogor, Depok, Tangerang and Bekasi.
“PT KAI Commuter Jabodetabek will launch the women-only commuter line trains on October 1, 2012,” Eva said. “These additional women-only train journeys won’t be available on Sunday and holidays”.
