A number of Jakarta residents have expressed their pride on the presence of the country′s first Mass Rapid Transit (MRT).

"I am proud of it. Jakarta finally now has its own MRT," a local resident Jefri said at the National Monument (Monas), Jakarta, on Sunday.

Jefri said that he had read reviews on the MRT which was looked so clean, and expressed hope for users to practise self-discipline.

"Hopefully the government would not stop to innovate," he said.

Another resident Yudi expected that the MRT could facilitate Jakartans to go to their workplaces and do their daily activities.

Yudi called on the government to continue improving MRT services for its users.

A Jakartan Trisno said that he had been waiting for the operation of the MRT since early 2019.

"I come to Monas today with my family as I heard that President Joko Widodo would inaugurate the MRT from Hotel Indonesia to Lebak Bulus," Trisno said.

President Joko Widodo earlier officially inaugurated the country’s first MRT line in Jakarta on Sunday.

President Widodo, accompanied by his Cabinet ministers and dozens of VVIP guests, led the inauguration in a signing ceremony.
