Railway Transport in Lampung:
Railway station at Untung Suropati
To travel to other cities or other provinces, the residents of Bandar Lampung have choices regarding which to go by. Most people prefer going by buses as bus routes cover many destination places, while railway transport covers only several places and   travelling frequencies are very low. To go to South Sumatera, there are only two departures—in the morning at 9 and in the evening 10 at the latest. Tickets can be reserved  or purchased just before you leave. Allow 45 minutes earlier to get your ticket at the ticket office of the railway.

Workers or employees working in North Lampung can also go by train. This is a good service provided by the local government. They can catch the train from Tanjungkarang Train Station or the one in Labuan Ratu.

Compartment Classes Available
Tanjungkarang Train Station
There are three classes of train compartments: economy, business, and executive classes. Whether you leave in the morning or evening will depend on your choice. If you like to enjoy the view of the country side, you can choose morning train. The train takes approximately 11 hours to reach Kertapati Railway station in South Sumatera.

Foods and drinks are also available aboard the train but they cost you too much. You are advised to bring your own foods and drink bought before you leave. You can visit nearby food stalls at the railway station.
During your travel, beware of pickpockets. They maybe aboard the train or at the train station of your destination.  There are guys at the railway station offering
