Jakarta One Card—trial launched in June 2016—is a multi-application smart card that utilizes RFID technology to facilitate a wide range of applications, including contactless payments for transportation fares across multi-modal public transportation in Jakarta (e.g., city-owned buses, upcoming MRT, and light rail transit systems), retail stores, and electronic road pricing (ERP) tolls. It can also function as an electronic ID card (e-KTP) and Social Security Management Agency (BPJS) health insurance card. The government aims to have all citizens in Jakarta obtain the Jakarta One Card by 2019.
