The Palembang LRT is Sumatra’s first and only light rail system, connecting Sultan Mahmud Badaruddin II International Airport with downtown Palembang, Jakabaring Sport Complex and Ogan Permata Indah. The route runs mostly parallel to the heavily-utilised Jl. Kolonel H. Burlian and Jl. Jenderal Sudirman, with a deviation to Jl. Angkatan 45 to serve the Bumi Sriwijaya Stadium. The Palembang LRT opened on 1 August 2018, just in time for the 2018 Asian Games.

The Palembang LRT operates with eight sets of 3-car trains manufactured domestically by PT INKA in Madiun. Despite being a brand new line with its own right-of-way, the Palembang LRT runs on the usual Cape Gauge (1,067 mm or 3 ft 6 in) as per existing PT KAI lines (except Aceh) despite not being physically connected to the rest of the network.
