Jadal waktu tidak ada. Maaf.
(there is no timetable anymore, sorry)
There is only-but it will only work for the better trains, online booking. In general all kereta api jalan hari-hari,an. Steam/firecarts run every day.
For the lokal and komuter you can only buy just before it goes-and I think now in the wider JKT area (JaBoTaBek) you must have a kind of chipcard.
In principle on pulau Jawa there are 2 main lines all the way from Kota Kotor (dirty city, JKT) to Surabaya, via the north-along coast/Semarang or the really old style main line via inland: Yogya-Solo. On many of the better trains you can only do long trips-there will be MIN. distance. have to use other lower graded trains for shorter. Ticket system has also changed a lot-a bit like airlines with check-in and getting boarding pass. Seems however you can also pre-order even at the kantor pos or other outlets.
If you are that stubborn ┬┤tidak bas┬┤ type you will face an extremely hard time, more so if knowing no bahasa.
