Skytrain to connect terminals at Soekarno-Hatta airport (

SkyTrain is the metropolitan rail system of Greater VancouverBritish Columbia, Canada.[7] SkyTrain has 79.6 km (49.5 mi) of track[4] and uses fully automated trains on grade-separated tracks running on underground and elevated guideways, allowing SkyTrain to hold consistently high on-time reliability.[8] The name, SkyTrain, was coined for the system during Expo 86 because the first line (Expo) principally runs on elevated guideway outside of Downtown Vancouver, providing panoramic views of the metropolitan area. SkyTrain has the world's longest cable-supported transit-only bridge, known as SkyBridge, to cross the Fraser River.[9] With the opening of theEvergreen Extension on December 2, 2016, SkyTrain is now the longest rapid transit system in Canada, and the longest fully automated driverless system in the world.[10][11]
SkyTrain currently has 53 stations serving three lines: ExpoMillennium, and Canada Line. The Expo Line and Millennium Line are operated by British Columbia Rapid Transit Company under contract from TransLink (originally BC Transit), a regional government transportation agency. The Canada Line is operated on the same principles by the private concessionaire ProTrans BC under contract to TransLink, and is an integrated part of the regional transport system. SkyTrain uses a fare system shared with other local transit services, and is policed by the South Coast British Columbia Transportation Authority Police Service. SkyTrain Attendants (STAs) provide first aid, directions and customer service, inspect fares, monitor train faults, and operate the trains manually if necessary. - Wikipedia

Soekarno-Hatta International Airport in Tangerang, Banten, will be equipped with a driverless train connecting its three terminals. Operation of the so-called skytrain is expected to commence in June.
Initially, two train cars with a capacity of 176 people will connect Terminal 2 and Terminal 3, according to state-owned airport operator PT Angkasa Putra II (AP II).
“Meanwhile, in August, the skytrain will be fully operational, with three trains with a capacity of 528 people connecting Terminal 1, Terminal 2 and Terminal 3,” AP II president director Muhammad Awaluddin said in its press statement on Wednesday.

He added that the headway of the skytrain would be 5 minutes, with 7 minutes needed to get from Terminal 1 to Terminal 3.
Passengers could access the schedule for skytrain arrivals on their smartphones through the Indonesia Airport application, he added.
“As Soekarno-Hatta will be turned into a transit airport, the skytrain [is important to] help passengers move easily between Terminal 1, Terminal 2 and Terminal 3,” he said, adding that the train would move at 60 kilometers per hour and would be equipped with automated guideway transit (AGT) technology.

Investment for the project is estimated at Rp 950 billion (US$71.25 million), which includes the construction of infrastructure and the procurement of moving stock.
The skytrain itself is built by state-owned company PT LEN in cooperation with Woojin from South Korea, while the infrastructure will be handled by state-owned construction company PT Wijaya Karya Tbk and PT Indulexco. (bbn) (source:
