Joni said that PT KAI has appealed to the public to plan their homecoming journey well. KAI set the Lebaran transportation period on H-10 to H+10 Lebaran or April 12 to May 3, 2022.

Because KAI sells tickets on Lebaran transportation starting from H-45, as of February 27, 2023, the tickets that can be purchased are at the departure of April 12 and April 13, 2023.

 Joni said, in order to improve services to customers and anticipate the soaring number of passengers in the Eid transportation period, KAI also planned to increase the ticket quota and the number of train trips.

The plan was determined after analysis and evaluation related to the dynamics of the ticket request.

As for the requirements for riding a train, so far KAI still applies a train ride according to Circular Letter (SE) of the Ministry of Transportation Number 84 of 2022 and SE Ministry of Health Number HK.02.02/II/3984/2022 since December 19, 2022.
