Reporting from kai.id, Edi Sukmoro, KAI’s Managing Director revealed the current Gapeka designation to replace Gapeka 2017. The goal is to meet the aspirations and needs of customers for a reliable railroad service for all those who choose railroad as their favorite transportation.
Keep in mind, Gapeka is a guideline for implementing train travel arrangements that are depicted in the form of lines that show stations, time, distance, speed, and position of train travel from starting, stopping, coming, crossing, and following, drawn graphically for control train trip.
Re-check Train Schedule Thoroughly
Have a vacation plan at the end of the year using the train is the right time when ordering tickets from now on so as not to run out. But given the new train and other changes, you should check the departure schedule carefully. Do not get the wrong schedule, trains and others that make vacation plans become messy.
