Commuter Line Information for Poris Station

Poris is the seventh station on the Brown Commuter Line if you are starting at Duri Station and travelling in the western direction towards towards the terminal stop on the Brown Line, Tangerang Station.

Due to its located being quite far from central Jakarta, it isn’t possible to directly transfer to another commuter line once at Poris Station.

Instead, you will have to head east all the way to Duri Station. Once at Duri, is it possible to transfer to the Yellow Line which services trains that run south to destinations such as Depok, Bogor and Nambo.

The Yellow Line helps many commuters in Jakarta bypass heavy traffic to these destinations in the south.

Alternatively, you can also travel north on the Yellow Line before it loops around to eastern Jakarta. If you travel north from Duri Station you will travel close to Ancol (one of Jakarta’s most popular theme parks) and reach popular market areas such as Pasar Senen and Jatinegara.

Both of these markets are within close walking distance of their respective commuter stations.

What is located around Stasiun Poris?

Due to its proximity in Banten, do not expect very many tourist attractions or tourists around Stasiun Poris.

There are a few local traditional Indonesian markets not too far from the station though.

Traditional Market Poris Indah is probably the most interesting market to check out. It is about 1.5 km southeast of the station.

There are also a few patches of green space near Poris Station which is rare to see around Jakarta. Since this is quite far west it starts to feel more like a village area opposed to a city.

Staying in this area can be a bit of challenge for domestic and international tourists.

There are very few quality accommodation options in this part of Banten, and very few tourist friendly services available.
