HistoryEdit

Initially called Cepat Sidareja at its inauguration in 1985, the morning train was later renamed to Cipuja, while its night train counterpart was named Citrajaya and the route was extended to Cilacap and Jakarta. The train Galuh called at stations on this route which were skipped by both Cipuja and Citrajaya. In the early 2000s, Cipuja and Citrajaya were rebranded to Serayu. In 2013, the route was extended to Purwokerto.
