The Indonesian government previously banned traveling, especially during Eid, due to the pandemic, and now public enthusiasm is soaring through the rough and is reflected in train ticket sales after being denied for two years.
Eva detailed that on average, about 90 percent of train tickets departing from Jakarta to West Java, Central Java, and East Java for the period of April 28, 2022, to May 1, 2022, have been sold.
"The majority of destinations are Yogyakarta, Kutoarjo, Purwokerto, Semarang, Surabaya, Cirebon, Kebumen, and Bandung," he said.
During that period, KAI Daop 1 Jakarta will operate long-distance trains with 58 trips per day and an average seating capacity of 33,652 per day for departures from Gambir and Pasar Senen Station.
She said that KAI had prepared 329 units of facilities consisting of 45 locomotives and 284 passenger trains with luggage.
"All the locomotive and train facilities have gone through various stages of maintenance and special inspections ahead of the Eid al-Fitr travel period," said Eva, as quoted by Antara on Tuesday, April 19, 2022.
