The complete guide to using the Jakarta Kota – Bogor KRL Commuter Line in Jakarta.
Jakarta’s Red Commuter Line is also called the Jakarta Kota-Bogor Line.
It is operated by KA Commuter Jabodetabek. As its name suggests, this line connects Jakarta Kota Station with Bogor (a satellite city south of Jakarta). Although there are multiple lines making up Jakarta’s busy commuter train network, the Red Line is the busiest. It plays an important role in Jakarta’s economy because employees who live south of Jakarta can bypass heavy traffic by taking the Red Line to and from work on a daily basis.
For the average working Indonesian, it is a very affordable way to get to and from Jakarta, but it can get overly crowded during peak travel times in the morning and evening.
Although it is the busiest line, it wasn’t the first line built in the system. The Tanjung Priok – Jatinegara Line was built first.
The stations on the Jakarta Kota-Bogor (Red Line) are actually shared with other lines in the system. The stations in the northern section of the line from Jakarta Kota Station to Manggarai Station are shared with the KA Commuter Blue Line. The stations south of Manggarai all the way to Bogor are shared with the Yellow Commuter Line.
You will find that the Red Line is sometimes called different names by different people. The Red Line is the easiest way to identify this line, but you might also hear people calling it the Jakarta Kota – Bogor Line or even the Bogor – Jakarta Kota Line. Of course this may stem from the origin of the individual who is taking the train.
