By integrating the transportation network, TOD won't only improve connectivity and accessibility, but also improve the welfare of Jakarta residents and Jakarta's economic growth," he explained.

PT MRT Jakarta President Director, Tuhiyat explained the TOD Investment Forum is an effort made by his party to encourage cooperation and collaboration with various parties in developing areas in Jakarta into areas that provide comfort and a better quality of life for the community. Besides that, it aimed to provide more efficient and effective choices for residents in moving from one point to their destination.
