Finally! Indonesians trains have e-tickets.
In a long overdue but still unexpected move, railway operator Kereta Api Indonesia has introduced online booking and e-ticketing on its website.
This is another sign of KAI management’s greater focus in recent times on customer service, comfort and convenience. As well as increasing the maximum advance booking period from 40 days to 90 earlier this year, KAI has stopped selling standing room tickets and banned smoking on all trains and station platforms.
As recently as a few years ago, customers could only buy tickets a maximum of 7 days in advance, and only from the station where the train departed from. Customers had to fill in a form to buy tickets, payment was cash-only, tickets were paper tickets, and this inefficient system resulted in long queues. Now, passengers can book tickets for any train on the website, pay by ATM/credit card and receive the tickets by email as a pdf/Acrobat Reader file.
However, foreign visitors to Indonesia wanting to book train tickets will still have a problem: the KAI website does not accept foreign credit cards.
Fortunately, Mau Ke Mana can assist people in this situation.

Dear P. Bonhommet,

I would need to know a specific date in August, because prices vary according to the day of the week, proximity to public holidays, etc.
Hi Iam wondering if it is possible to go from bogor, to kroya to purwokerto by train? I cannot find any info it this exists.and again from Purwokerto to Yogyakarta<thanks for your help, Viktor
Bogor is part of the Jakarta Rail network. No inter-city trains depart from Bogor. You would need to travel to Jakarta first, then continue to Purwokerto from there.
There are several trains from Purwokerto to Yogyakarta. Please note that the train operator charges the same price for trains regardless of where you get on/off, so for shorter distances a bus trip is definitely cheaper and may be more suitable.
Hi Chris, thanks for the info, veryhelpful, will take your advice and travel back to JKT, cheers
