The name of station Gambir is so popular in Jakarta city, especially for those prefer to travel by train. Train transport in Java and other parts of Indonesia is less developing despite the fact of long history of rail and train existence in the country. Meanwhile it is actually the cheapest way of traveling. Some trains are classified as good standard such as Argo Bromo and Executive, only the management less intensive in developing and maintain various aspects of this transportation which is state owned company.
