All but a few intercity trains originating from cities east of Jakarta stop at Jatinegara[a]; however, all trains heading to those cities pass the station. The government is planning to make the station into a terminus for some of these trains.

HistoryEdit

Before the construction of the station, the area where the current building stood was known as swamp named "Rawa Bangke". Jatinegara station was opened on 15 October 1909 during the Dutch colonial period.[2] It was known then as Meester Cornelis station. The station was designed by S. Snuyff, the head of the department of public work of the Indies at that time. Jatinegara station was the main station for the independent municipality of Meester Cornelis (now Jatinegara, a subdistrict of Jakarta). The station was meant to be the main connection to the east (Bandung).[3][4]
