Project Description

SHIA Express Railway project serves as an alternative transportation to SHIA with a 30-minute estimated maximum travel time from the city center to the airport. The SHIA Express Railway, with a 37 km track from Soekarno-Hatta Airport to Halim Perdanakusuma Airport, will have stations within the city that can be easily accessed via road and other transportation modes, and that are located close to centers of commercial activities as well as densely populated residential areas that are connected to the MRT Jakarta transportation system and other railway lines.

The stations located at the Airport will be located near passenger terminals and at a walking distance from the departure terminal, or from the baggage collection place and the arrival terminal.

Moreover, the SHIA Express Railway will prioritize user experience by providing passenger baggage storage, shortening travel time and providing reliability compared to other transportation modes. This railway will also have faster speed compared to the Commuter Line Train and will have fewer stops.

Project Significance

The purpose of this project is to accommodate the need for access from and to SHIA, considering the growing capacity and passenger traffic at SHIA. The economic benefit of this project will help the improvement of commercial and industrial activities in the surrounding area as well as create job opportunities for local people.
