The 15.7 km line consists of 13 stations (7 elevated, and 6 underground) and connects Lebak Bulus to Bundaran HI.

The journey from terminal to terminal takes less than 30 minutes and the ticket fares go from 3.000 Rp up to 14.000 Rp.

The line will be expanded further north all the way to Kota with its Phase 2, aimed to open in 2024.

MRT has planned a second line, the East–West Line, that will connect Cikarang (in Bekasi) and Balaraja (in Tangerang) with the city center.
However this line is several years away as it is still in a planning phase.
