JAKARTA -- Indonesia's leading ride-hailing app operator Go-Jek and MRT Jakarta, the company behind the country's first high-capacity commuter rail network, Jakarta Mass Rapid Transit, on Tuesday signed a memorandum of understanding aimed at improving Jakarta's public transport as well as developing stations and nearby facilities.

Under the memorandum, both companies will study ways of integrating the ride-hailing company's online payment system, Go-Pay, in selling train tickets as well as goods in station kiosks and the like. Both companies will look at ways of utilizing the vast amount of data Go-Jek has amassed, to decide what kind of food stores to install in the stations and surroundings.
