UNS — PT Kereta Api Indonesia (KAI) provides a 10% discount for Universitas Sebelas Maret (UNS) Surakarta faculty members, academic staff, and alumni as a result of the memorandum of understanding signing between PT KAI, UNS, and UNS Alumni Association (IKA) on Friday (11/3/2022).
In the ceremony, the President Director of PT KAI, Didiek Hartyanto, stated that this discount is an early collaboration between PT KAI and UNS and hoped that it would lead to a more extensive collaboration in the future.
“As mentioned by the Rector, UNS has proud achievements. As its alumnus, I am proud. Thus, how could we collaborate? This is the first time for UNS academic members to get a discount for railway services. The next development will be continuity between UNS and KAI. So, there will be an enrichment for students so that when they graduate, they are ready with the current systems,” Didiek stated after signing the memorandum of understanding in Ruang Sidang IV UNS Central Office.
The discount will be effective for long-distance and medium-distance trips in the economy, business, and executive classes. The discount is not applicable for the commuter train, special service train, promotional services, or the luxury, imperial, priority, and other tourism railway services.
To activate the benefit, UNS faculty members, academic staff, and alumni must register themselves in the railway station customer service using their ID Card and other identifying proofs. After registration, they need to download the KAI Access application and register the same ID number that they register in the customer service. The discount will automatically apply to the KAI Access account after registration.
The discount is only applicable for all tickets purchased through the KAI Access application and only effective for personal use that does not cover family members. This service will be effective from 11 March 2022 for the next two years. Humas UNS
