South Jakarta Mayor Marullah Matali said he had instructed all state offices in the municipality to provide designated pickup points for app-based ojek (motorcycle taxis).
“I’ve talked with district and subdistrict heads to do that. Cipete Selatan and Ragunan subdistricts have done it,” Marullah said as quoted by kompas.com on Monday.
In the South Jakarta municipal office, the designated pickup point will be located at its parking lot, Marullah said. The area would not be too large because it is only for picking up and dropping off passengers, not for parking.
Marullah said he would ensure all state offices have pickup points within a week. He said he would spread the word to schools too.
Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan on July 27 summoned several high-ranking officials and instructed them to provide pickup points at government offices. The measure was taken to reduce the number of ojek dropping off and picking up passengers on congested roads. (vla)
