“I think yesterday’s accident was the best lesson, maybe if there wasn’t an accident it would be considered a success even though it wasn’t,” said Djoko.
Therefore, the matter of passenger safety needs to be improved even more.
Safety information can be provided in the form of video or written displays both in the station room and inside the LRT train itself.
On the other hand, Djoko also highlighted public access to the Jabodebek LRT. According to him, public transportation is not properly considered.
“For now, the important thing is not only accidents and safety but also regarding how people access to the LRT station that needs attention, this is to see the success of the LRT. So, LRT is not only from the train, but how can people from home have access to go to the station, because if you bring a car at the station, the parking is narrow,” said Djoko.
