TEMPO.CO, Jakarta – Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan on Wednesday monitored the trial of a policy which permits non-foldable bicycles to be brought inside MRT Jakarta train. Stations equipped with facilities for non-folding bikes are Lebak Bulus Grab, Blok M BCA, and Bundaran HI.
MRT Jakarta president director William Sabandar said the Jakarta governor provided him with a number of inputs during this test phase.
“The inputs he gave include adding signposts, queueing lines, and public disseminations,” William wrote in his latest written statement on March 24.
Fortunately, he said the governor was overall impressed about the facilities that were prepared using the inputs from many communities such as the ‘Bike to Work’ bicycle community and the ITDP.
The three MRT stations also offer temporary parking spread in a number of locations within the station for non-foldable bicycles.
However, it is important to note that non-foldable bicycles are not permitted to ride on MRT train during rush hours from 07:00—09:00 and 17:00—19:00. Maximum only four bikes are allowed to get on the MRT car No. 6 for each departure.
