But Nurcahyo, spokesman for KRL Mania, as reported by Vivanews, criticized the program he stated that there is a benefit despite the urgency of interest. He considered that it would be nice if the addition of a series of women-only train were made to the existing train. That way, the density of passengers at peak hours can be slightly reduced.
