In response to the positive reaction from the public, the Jakarta administration has designated more car-free days each month at more streets across the capital.
In the new plan, the city will close off adjoining main thoroughfares Jl. Sudirman and Jl. Thamrin in Central Jakarta from 6 a.m. to 11 a.m. every Sunday and will close a number of streets in each municipality once a month.
