The city administration will be teaming up with the
Jakarta Police Traffic Directorate to implement the electronic road pricing
Deputy Governor Basuki “Ahok” 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
“We 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
