On Board Parahiyangan Train



This is the view on board the Executive Class of Parahyangan train that serves Bandung - Jakarta - Bandung route.

There are three classes of trains that serve Bandung - Jakarta - Bandung route. They are The Argo Gede (First Class), Parahyangan Executive Class, and Parahyangan Business Class. The Argo Gede runs 6 trips per day (8 trips at the weekend). Parahyangan - both the Executive and Business Classes, which are on the same trains, - runs 6 trips per day with an additional trip scheduled when necessary. Bandung - Jakarta vv train trips normally take about 3 hours and 10 minutes.

For a complete Bandung-Jakarta-Bandung train schedule and fares, you may refer to the website of PT Kereta Api Indonesia (PT KAI). PT KAI, by the way, is a state-owned company and the only train operator in Indonesia.
