The city administration will be teaming up with the Jakarta Police Traffic Directorate to implement the electronic road pricing (ERP) scheme.

Deputy Governor Basuki '€œAhok'€ Tjahaja Purnama said on Friday that a working group would be set up, consisting of the traffic directorate, the Transportation Agency, the tax office and city-owned PT Jakarta Propertindo.

'€œWe are establishing the group because we want to review government policies and traffic regulations. We also want to deactivate vehicle ownership documents of cars found using Transjakarta bus lanes,'€ he said as quoted by kompas.com.

 Ahok said the ERP would come into effect in the three-in-one zone and along Jl. Rasuna Said in Kuningan by the first quarter next year. All vehicles passing through ERP areas will be charged Rp 21,072 (US$1.9) each. Before the ERP system is fully implemented, the city administration plans to use hologram stickers to mark vehicles allowed to drive through ERP areas.

The group will also be tasked with preparing the availability of the hologram stickers, which car owners will have to buy.

The ERP system aims to encourage residents not to purchase and use private cars but to take public transportation, to ease traffic congestion
