Manggarai Station is a railway station in Jakarta that serves the Greater Jakarta Commuterline and Soekarno–Hatta Airport Rail Link. The station is being expanded to become the new terminus station for most intercity trains, replacing Gambir Station. The station doesn’t include the Jakarta-Bandung High-Speed Railway (that will be at Halim Station).
The ground floor level will serve the Bekasi commuter line and the airport train. Long-distance trains will be served on the second floor, along with the Bogor commuter line. It will be the second-largest railway station in Southeast Asia (after Bang Sue Grand Station in Bangkok).

Understanding the Concept of Transit Oriented Development Through Proposed Project of Manggarai, Jakarta Selatan, Indonesia – [September 2017]
“TOD’s concept which stands for Transit Oriented Development is one of an alternative solution to tackle traffic issues within metropolitan cities generally and Jakarta particularly. By adopting the concept of TOD, many buildings with a different function could be integrated to provide an easy, safe and comfort life for users. TOD’s concept usually has integrated transportation facilities such as rail station, bus terminal, commuter line terminal with other facilities such as residential and commercial’s function. All those facilities will be designed integrated to create better access for the community to get an easy way from one facility to another one. This concept will linkage residential area with office area and commercial area, thus people who live within the residential area could reach their working place easily by walking using the facility of pedestrian way. This paper will discuss about how the concept of TOD will become one of an alternative solution to create a better accessible environment within Jakarta.”
