Jakarta Asserts 32 CFD Areas for Cyclists Only, Not Pedestrians

25 June 2020 20:12 WIB

TEMPO.CO, JakartaJakarta Transportation Agency asserted that the alternative Car Free Day or CFD events designed in 32 areas are only opened for bicycle riders.

“Based on the evaluation of CFD in Sudirman-Thamrin and in order to prevent crowds, we facilitate 32 areas for cyclists,” said the Transportation Agency Head Syafrin Liputo in a phone call with Tempo on Thursday, June 25.

Syafrin said the reason for only allowing cyclists to use the service was because bicycles keep moving, so it will not cause people to crowd an area. Hence, pedestrians are prohibited to join the event.

According to Syafrin, the crowds in last week’s Sudirman-Thamrin car-free day were caused by pedestrians. “Pedestrians generate crowds so they are not permitted to present in the areas.”

Syafrin said officers will order people exercising without bicycles to turn back and leave the area. The agency will deploy a total of 1,526 officers to guard the event that will be opened from 6 a.m. until 9 a.m.
