Scientific evidence which links environmental noise to health problems is starting to emerge. KRL Commuterline is an electric commuter rail system serving Greater Jakarta, Indonesia, and operated by a state-owned enterprise. This paper aimed to analyze the noise caused by KRL that occur to people's house located around the KRL tracks between Depok stations and Tanjung Barat stations and analyze the effect of noise on residents' perceptions KRL rails regarding non-auditory noise disturbances. A correlation test and regression test were conducted to measure the relationship and effect between variables. Statistical data showed that most respondents did not experience non-auditory disorders. Besides, the correlation test results showed that none of the variables (Gender, Age, and Length of Stay) significantly affected respondents' perceptions of non-auditory disorders, but, through a follow-up question, it was found that there were complaints that they experienced as the residents who lived around the tracks. The noise caused by this KRL, which occurred to people's houses located around the KRL tracks between Depok station and Tanjung Barat station, resulted in a noise value that exceeds the noise quality standard with the average measurement results of (showing for each measurement time) ± 80.05 dBA.
