MRT Jakarta to Abide by Govt's Policy on Account-Based Ticketing
TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Jakarta mass-rapid transit operator PT MRT Jakarta President Director Tuhiyat said his side would follow the provincial government's decision on the implementation of account-based ticketing (ABT). MRT, he added, only has the authority to regulate the systems needed for its implementation.
“If the provincial government has decided it, we only need to set the system,” Tuhiyat said at the Jakarta City Hall, on Monday, September 25, 2023.
He said that account-based ticketing was created to separate the normal fares for integrated transport modes from the amount of fees paid by customers of certain categories. “ABT separates normal fares and other fares, such as for seniors, students, and so on,” he explained.
According to Tuhiyat, PT JakLingko Indonesia would disseminate the ABT. MRT had also started introducing ABT by distributing pamphlets at Ratangga train stations.
As previously reported, city-owned bus operator Transjakarta Director Welfizon Yuza confirmed the plan to implement ABT, which is a product of JakLingko, a joint venture of Transjakarta, MRT, LRT Jakpro, MITJ (Moda Integrasi Transportasi Jabodetabek),” he said in Cikini on Tuesday, September 19, 2023.
Welfizon said the account-based ticketing will allow Transjakarta to know the identity of passengers as it will be integrated with data belonging to the Jakarta Population and Civil Registration Agency (Dukcapil).
