MRT Jakarta corporate secretary Muhammad Kamaludin said that the pin also permitted priority passengers to pass through the wider turnstiles and to sit in the prioritized seats on the trains.
Hafiz, 32, who traveled with his 64-year-old father Mad Soleh from Tangerang to Lebak Bulus on Thursday, welcomed the policy, saying that his father would benefit from the new pin, even though he rarely took public transport.
