Electronic Road Pricing Scheme to Be Applied on 18 Jakarta Streets

16 December 2021 15:25 WIB

TEMPO.CO, JakartaJakarta provincial government has drafted an electronic road pricing (ERP) policy for the capital city roads. The policy is targeted to be implemented on 18 streets until 2039.

The city’s Transportation Agency Head of the ERP System Management Unit, Zulkifli, confirmed the information. He explained that the ERP implementation was already listed in the draft of Regional Regulation or Raperda on the Jakarta Transportation Master Plan (RITJ).

“We have included it in the Jakarta Transportation Master Plan and will discuss it in 2022. A total of 18 streets, nearly 174.04 kilometer-long roads will be ERP-ed,” said Zulkifli as quoted from Antara.

Zulkifli explained the policy was aimed at reducing the use of private vehicles in order to overcome congestion in the capital city and increase the public interest in using mass transport, as well as tackling air pollution. 

Cited from Antara, the number of public transport users had decreased drastically since 2002, which was only 50 percent. The number fell to 24 percent in 2010 and continued to decline to 16 percent in 2018.

“The use of private vehicles is increasing rapidly, while the use of public transportation continues to drop. On the other hand, the number of roads is not increasing, the growth is 0.01 percent per year,” Zulkifli concluded.
