The government has decided to use moving block signaling -- a signaling system in which the blocks, or sections of track, are defined in real time by computers as protected zones around each train – for the Greater Jakarta light rail transit (LRT).

With a moving block system, trains can transport more passengers than when a fixed block system is used, said Transportation Minister Budi Karya Sumadi.

Budi said that by using moving block signaling, the LRT could transport up to 750,000 passengers per day while with fixed block it would only be able to transport 500,000.
