VP Corporate Secretary of PT KAI (Persero) Commuter Anne Purba said there were 116,705 KRL users at all stations as of Monday (7/2) at 08.00 WIB. The figure is down 8 percent when compared to last week, which was 126,725 people.
“This figure is reduced by 8 percent compared to the same time last week, which was 126,725 people,” he said as quoted from an official statement, Monday (7/2).
Anne said the decline was in line with the government’s call for people to return to their activities from home in order to prevent an increase in cases of the Omicron variant of the COVID-19 variant.
However, a number of stations are still full of users, but the number has decreased, including Bogor Station with 8,988 users, or a decrease of 8 percent.
Then Bojonggede Station with 9,381 users, down 8 percent, and Sudimara Station with 3,287 users, down 5 percent.
Anne emphasized that the KAI Commuter remains consistent in implementing health protocols (prokes) for its users, such as being required to show a vaccine certificate before boarding the KRL, using double masks or masks according to regulations, and urging users to keep their distance both at stations and inside the KRL.
Officers prohibit users from entering the station if they are found not to apply health protocols.
As for a number of other prohibitions, such as children under five being prohibited from riding the KRL except for medical purposes, the time limit for the elderly to ride the KRL is only allowed at 10:00 to 14:00 WIB.
“Therefore, KAI Commuter requests the cooperation of all users to follow the rules together,” said Anne.
He added, KAI Commuter also invites users to manage their travel time by accessing the KRL Access application to avoid potential congestion at stations and inside KRL.
Customers are advised to use a Multi-Trip Card (KMT) or bank electronic money card to reduce the use of cash and support the government in implementing a cashless society.
