He explained, in this FGD, they also discuss about LRT integration system with other road and rail-based mass transportation. Thus LRT can be a unit that gives all transportation services that citizens demand.
"LRT should be able to serve all kinds of communities. Thus LRT will not only become a new transportation, but also able to bring integration and continuation," he explained.
He conveyed, socialization to public regarding LRT Corridor 1 Kelapa Gading-Rawamangun route operational also becomes an important part. Because advanced transportation mode integration is very absolute and becomes a challenge in the future.
