Jakarta Kota Station is a terminal train station, located in the old city core of Kota, Jakarta, Java, Indonesia.The station was named Batavia Zuid (or South Batavia) until the beginning of the 20th century. The station was also popularly known as the Beos Station as an abbreviation of Bataviasche Ooster Spoorweg Maatschapij (the Batavian Eastern Railway Company).Jakarta Kota Station serves as a main station, along with Gambir Station, Jatinegara Station, and Pasar Senen Station, for several intercity train (Argo Train) lines across Java Island. This station also serves three of the six KRL Jabotabek train lines, which operate in the Jakarta metropolitan area.HistoryThe first station was built in 1887 by the Bataviasche Oosterspoorweg Maatschapij, a private railway company. The station was named Batavia Zuid to distinguish it from the older Batavia Noord station, which was situated a small distance to the north, directly behind the former city hall. The public railway company Staatsspoorwegen acquired both the southern and northern station in 1898 and 1913 respectively.
