The Jakarta administration booked a little over Rp 115 million (US$8,627.48) in revenue from parking lots in the vicinity of the National Monument (Monas) in Central Jakarta from Friday to Wednesday last week. 

“On average, we earn Rp 19 million per day,” the head of the city's technical managing unit (UPT) on parking areas, Tiodor Sianturi, said as quoted by beritajakarta.id.

She said the number of visitors to the site during the Idul Fitri holiday greatly contributed to the increase in revenue, adding that on a regular day, fees collected amounted to less than Rp 13 million.

“We also provided an additional parking lot, which is located to the north of Monas,” she said.
