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.
Developed and designed by Adriansyah Yasin and Fagra Hanif.

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.
I took the 525pm from bandara on jan. 28. The ticket seller overcharged me 30k saying that was for the card. Is this fair?
Yes, that’s the price of a new card. You paid Rp. 50,000 for Rp. 20,000 new value right?
Can I not pay cash instead of purchasing a e-money card?
Utterly ridiculous to expect foreign visitors to have a bank card or unnecessarily purchase e-money card especially if they are travelling in a small group. No wonder it’s under-subscribed.
Oops, just updated the page. You can now pay with cash again.
