BANDUNG-To further improve service to customers, PT Kereta Api Indonesia (KAI) in Operation Area 2 Bandung extended the time to purchase Local Train Tickets through the KAI Access application.
Previously the purchase could only be made 3 hours before the train departure schedule, now it has been since 00.00 on the day of departure until just before the scheduled departure and for the time being the Local Train ticket cannot be canceled or the schedule has been changed
Previously, since October 2018, PT KAI has launched a Local Rail purchase feature via KAI Access for Bandung Raya Local Railways (Padalarang-Cicalengka pp) and Cibatuan Train (Purwakarta-Cibatu pp).
According to Joni Martinus, KAI Daop 2 Bandung Public Relations Manager, public interest in these services is very good, until January 2019 45,334 passengers have purchased local train tickets through KAI Access.
"The use of KAI Access continues to increase, where the average growth reaches 217% per month," Joni said at the Bandung Daops 2 Office on Thursday (07/02).
According to Joni, his party will continue to make efforts to socialize to the public so that KAI Access is the main choice in ordering local train tickets in Daop 2 Bandung, because there are not a few advantages to be gained when booking train tickets including local trains.
"In addition to the ease of access and time, to carry out the boarding process, prospective passengers simply show the KAI Access application e-ticket (transaction proof) on their smartphone by opening the My Trips menu and then selecting the Local Trains page," he explained. (Parno)
