Gambir Station

Gambir Station

Gambir Station ( _id. Stasiun Gambir) is a mainline railway station in Gambir, Central Jakarta, Indonesia. It was built by the colonial Dutch before World War II but renovated in the 1990s. Its lime-green ceramic facade dominates the Gambir subdistrict.

Many trains from Jakarta to other major cities south and east of the capital, depart from or stop at Gambir. Kota and Pasar Senen stations have less services leaving from those locations.

These include - Bandung (Parahyangan and Argo Gede), Cirebon (Cirebon Express), Cilacap (Purwojaya), Yogyakarta (Argo Lawu, Taksaka and Bima), Solo (Surakarta) (Argo Lawu and Bima), Malang (Gajayana), Semarang (Argo Muria, Argo Bromo Anggrek and Sembrani) and Surabaya (Argo Bromo Anggrek, Bima and Sembrani), Also Express Commuter Train (KRL Express) from and to Bogor (Bogor Express and Pakuan Express), Depok (Depok Express) and Bekasi (Bekasi Express) depart from this station.

It is not a stop for local commuter trains serving metropolitan Jakarta; the closest commuter station is Gondangdia, near the backpacker alley known as Jalan Jaksa. The station is often crowded, especially at the end of Ramadan when many Indonesians return to Jakarta from their home villages.
