As I type this, the Jakarta MRT is scheduled to open next week. BNI City (fka Sudirman Baru) station on the Airport Rail Link appears to be quite close (~500m) to the upcoming MRT Dukuh Atas station, and this sounds pretty darn convenient for a planned business trip.

However, as previous visitors to Jakarta will know, walking 500m along the street can be quite the obstacle course, particularly if you have luggage. Are there any interchange facilities (tunnel, bridge, etc) for going from the Airport Rail Link to the MRT on foot?


So I checked this out today, and the connection is feasible but not great: doable with a backpack, less so with a suitcase.

There's no infrastructure as such (bridge, tunnel, etc), but both stations have signage pointing the way and Google Maps's suggested route along Jl. Plaju appears walkable. Just don't try walking up the extremely narrow car ramp if coming in from the MRT!

July 2019 update: An Indonesian source tells me a connecting tunnel between BNI City, Sudirman and MRT Dukuh Atas is now open! Looking forward to checking this out on my next visit.

    There are sidewalks, and they're less full of random stuff than most in Jakarta. – lambshaanxy Mar 28 '19 at 15:28
