MRT to alleviate Jakarta’s notorious traffic soon
It’s taken almost 40 years since its conception, but the Jakarta Mass Rail Transport (MRT) is finally on its way to completion.
With estimates that over four million residents commute to work each day, the Jakarta peak hour traffic worsens to near-gridlock conditions on a daily basis.
The MRT aims to reduce this significantly, without taking business away from the already existing modes of transport.
