President director of PT JakLingko Indonesia Muhamad Kamaluddin said that currently, his team is still widening the trial of smart cards and super apps initiated by JakLingko for four modes of transportation: MRT Jakarta, LRT Jakarta, TransJakarta, and KAI Commuter.
"We are still expanding the targeted trials to be completed later this year. So, early next year, in January 2022, the app can be downloaded by residents and users of public transportation," he informed here on Monday.

JakLingko is still conducting trials for ticket payments through the card-tapping system and QR codes on the JakLingko application at several gates in stations and stops in all transportation modes, he added.
The trial expansion is targeted to be completed by the end of 2021, so 1,300 gates at the stations and stops can be connected using the JakLingko Indonesia cards and applications, Kamaluddin said.
The trial expansion is part of phase 1 of the integrated intermodal system that was launched on September 29, 2021, he added.

Currently, the application can only be downloaded on a limited basis by stakeholders and communities participating in the trial, he disclosed.
After limited trials are conducted, public users will be able to download the application in January 2022, he said.
In addition to providing a one-stop payment system for various modes of transportation, the application will help users in choosing transportation, he added.
"The app will connect the point of departure and destination, and users will be given recommendations on the cheapest and fastest intermodal combination," Kamaluddin informed.
