Joni appealed to customers to pay attention to the train departure schedule listed on the ticket or e-ticket. This is in line with the implementation of the 2023 GAPEKA (Train Travel Chart).

In addition, KAI reminds all customers to get off at the station as stated on the ticket. If the customer is found deliberately getting off beyond the station listed on the ticket, then the person concerned will be dropped off at the nearest station.

To prevent this from happening, Joni explained that conductors are equipped with the Check Seat Passenger application. So that they can find out the identity of the passenger, the seat, and the relation of the ticket purchased.

“KAI continues to adapt to the wants and needs of customers. It is hoped that the extension of the ticket booking period will increase public interest in using trains as a safe, comfortable, and healthy mode of transportation,” he said.
