The Jakarta Light Rail Transit (Jakarta LRT) is a light metro system currently under construction in Jakarta, the capital city of Indonesia. It is being implemented by the Jakarta provincial government.[3]Eight two-cars trainsets were procured. The first phase of the LRT, from Velodrome to Kelapa Gading with six stations, is planned to begin operations in 2019, though no date has been set. [4]

The Jakarta light rail transit project aims to tackle Jakarta's high road traffic congestion.[5] The rolling stock comes from Hyundai Rotem from South Korea. Each trainset consists of two cars and will be able to carry 270 to 278 passengers. There will be a total of 16 cars.[1] Platform screen doors by ST Engineering Electronics will be installed at all stations.

Construction of Route 1 started on 22 June 2016. The first six kilometers of the route connecting the Kelapa Gading Depot to Velodrome Station was 29.61% complete by June 26, 2017. It was expected to be operational before the 2018 Asian Games.[8] However, this did not happen as construction is not yet finished and the Indonesia Asian Games Organizing Committee (INASGOC) considered that buses would be more effective in transporting the athletes.[9][10] The test run for the LRT which was scheduled on 10 August was delayed to 15 August 2018.[11]

On 12 February 2019, Project Director of LRT PT Jakarta, Iwan Takwin announced that Phase 1 is planned to begin operation on 25 February 2019 or 28 February 2019.

On 24 February 2019, Indonesia's transport minister, Budi Karya Sumadi announced that due to unfinished works for the depot and signalling system, Phase 1 will only be operational by late March 2019. However, it was delayed again.
