Ketua tim panel penilai lomba Identitas Jenama Kereta Cepat Indonesia, Triawan Munaf mengungkapkan kepanjangan dari ‘Whoosh’ yang menjadi nama resmi kereta cepat Indonesia itu. Nama ‘Whoosh’ singkatan dari Waktu Hemat, Operasi Optimal, Sistem Handal.

“Whoosh ini memiliki kepanjangan, Waktu Hemat, Operasi Optimal, Sistem Handal. Jadi sangat sesuai sekali,” ungkap Triawan.

Triawan turut menjelaskan arti ‘Whoosh’ sebagai nama Kereta Cepat Jakarta-Bandung. Menurut dia, nama ‘Whoosh’ artinya ‘cepat’, yang mana nama ini sesuai dengan kesan pertama saat mengetahui kecepatan kereta api cepat.

Siapa Pencetus Nama ‘Whoosh’?
Pada kesempatan yang sama, Menteri Perhubungan (Menhub) Budi Karya Sumadi bercerita bahwa nama KCJB ‘Whoosh’ itu berasal dari pembicaraan antarpejabat hingga ungkapan kegembiraan masyarakat saat ikut uji coba.

Ketika menjajal moda transportasi itu, ada ungkapan kegembiraan usai merasakan kereta cepat, yakni kata ‘Whoosh’. Kemudian kata itu juga didiskusikan dengan Menteri BUMN Erick Thohir, Menteri Sekretariat Negara Pratikno, hingga Presiden Joko Widodo (Jokowi).

“Pencetus, jadi, dalam tiga minggu terakhir kami itu berdialog antara Pak Presiden, Pak Pratik, Pak Erick, saya, Pak Triawan dan kawan-kawan, japri-japrian, diskusi gitu ya, dan bersamaan dengan itu kami juga uji coba dengan Pak Luhut, Pak Edo, jadi memang dikatakan itu ‘siapa kita? Jaya. Nah kalau di sana itu ungkapan kegembiraan begini ngomong ‘whoosh whoosh’,” terangnya.

Kemudian, Budi mengatakan bahwa kata ‘Whoosh’ juga sempat disebut-sebut ketika bersama Jokowi dan Pratikno lagi di lain kesempatan. Kala itu, Budi mengatakan bahwa Jokowi menyebut jika kereta dengan kecepatan sangat cepat namanya ‘whoosh, whoosh’.

“Di lain waktu Pak Pratik, Pak Presiden, saya bergabung, beliau juga mengatakan kalau namanya cepat namanya kan whoosh whoosh gitu kan. Kita cobalah itu,” ujar Budi Karya Sumadi.

Selain itu, diketahui pemerintah saat ini juga tengah berproses membuat sayembara untuk logo ‘Whoosh’, yang menjadi nama resmi Kereta Cepat Jakarta-Bandung. Saat ini sudah terpilih tiga kandidat dengan logo yang berbeda.

Nantinya, masyarakat dapat melihat dan memilih logo mana yang akan digunakan untuk nama Kereta Cepat Jakarta-Bandung. Logo beserta masing-masing penjelasannya dapat dilihat dalam laman KCIC (Kereta Cepat Indonesia China) di
