Transfer Information for Palmerah Station

Unfortunately, it isn’t possible to transfer between train lines when you arrive at Palmerah Station.

To get to the next closest transfer station, you will have to travel one station northeast on the Green Line to Tanah Abang Station.

Tanah Abang Station is one of the busiest stations in the commuter network with two lines connecting there – the Yellow Line and the Green Line.

Once you arrive at Tanah Abang you can transfer to the Yellow Line.

The Yellow Line services trains all the way south to destinations such as Bogor, Nambo and Depok.

Heading south on the Yellow Line is popular with passengers because it can be used to bypass Jakarta’s heavy traffic during peak periods.

Alternatively, you can travel north on the Yellow Line to Kampung Bandan Station and transfer one station over on the Pink Line to reach Ancol.

Looping around on the eastern side of central Jakarta on the Yellow Line will enable you to access popular market areas such as Jatinegara and Pasar Senen. Both of these markets are conveniently located within walking distance from their respective stations.
