LRT Jakarta had opened a free-of-charge trial run to the public from July to late November 2019, with a route covering six stations - Velodrome, Equestrian, Pulomas, Boulevard Selatan, Boulevard Utara, and Pegangsaan Dua.

Around 30 percent of the tariff is subsidized by the Jakarta provincial government as the actual tariff for the operational service could reach tens of thousand rupiah.

The General Manager of LRT Jakarta's Operation and Service Aditya Kesuma confirmed that the subsidized tariff would not have any impact on its service since it is a public service oriented.

“LRT also has a partnership agreement with the government concerning on minimum service standards that we have to implement,” Kesuma noted.
