This collaboration took place at the inauguration of the renamed Senayan Mastercard Station, formerly known as Senayan Station. The collaboration will enable payment acceptance at MRT Jakarta, providing more payment options to commuters and spearheading a new era of seamless urban mobility.

As MRT Jakarta’s partner, Mastercard will introduce convenient cashless top-ups and purchases of MRT cards for commuters travelling on the MRT.

He highlighted, “The collaboration with Mastercard is a testament to MRT Jakarta’s inclusive approach, which aims to cultivate Jakarta as the hub of national economic and business activities. Looking ahead, we look forward to further collaboration and innovation with Mastercard to improve the travel experience of MRT Jakarta passengers.”

Aileen Goh, President and Director, of PT Mastercard Indonesia, said, “At Mastercard, we are harnessing our global network and technology to help solve public sector challenges, such as through the digitalization of vital public services. This includes transit, where Mastercard collaborates with key partners worldwide to enable frictionless, accessible transit experiences that drive increased ridership, efficiencies, and innovation. Under this partnership, a first for Indonesia, PT MRT Jakarta and Mastercard will be working closely to ensure that anyone in Jakarta, resident or tourist, can enjoy an improved and simplified transit experience, starting with convenient and secure cashless payments.”

This partnership is a key part of Mastercard and MRT Jakarta’s broader strategy to bolster urban mobility in Indonesia, marking a substantial step towards a more interconnected and digitally empowered urban landscape.
