The plan to build a high-speed railway has existed for years. The project was pursued by Japan and China, both having the technological capacity to build a railway that would connect Jakarta and Bandung. China won the project due to its readiness to provide guarantee-free loans, while Japan requested Indonesian government funding. The line will cut travel time between the two cities from about three hours by car to just 45 minutes. The project will include integration of the high-speed railway stations with developments along its corridor through transit oriented developments. The line would attract around 10 million passengers per year in first year of operation. This high figure reflects the high population density of Jakarta, and the large number of origin destination pairs that the line would serve.
