The Palembang Light Rail Transit (Palembang LRT) is a light rail transit system that currently is under construction in Palembang, Indonesia and connect Sultan Mahmud Badaruddin II International Airport and Jakabaring stadium complex. The project is built to facilitate the 2018 Asian Games[1][2] The project is estimated to cost Rp9.4 trillion (US$707.51 million).[3].

Construction was scheduled to be completed in February 2018, with commercial service beginning in May 2018.

The fare will be Rp 10,000, but an initial subsidised fare of Rp 5,000 will be charged until December 2018.[5]
