Government of Jakarta Plans to Ban Older Motorised Vehicles to Control Traffic

The provincial government of Jakarta region will soon impose age restrictions on motorised vehicles, with Regional Regulations (Peraturan Daerah or PERDA) currently in preparation.

Speaking to the press on Monday, the 8th of July, the Head of the DKI Jakarta Transportation Agency’s Electronic Paid Road System (SPBE) Management Unit, Zulkifli, stated that the regulation on motorised vehicle age restrictions in Jakarta is expected to be completed before the end of this year.

“Now we are processing the regulations through PERDA. The target is to finish the PERDA this year, then propose it next year and have it discussed with the Special Region of Jakarta Regional House of Representatives [DPRD DKI Jakarta],” said Zulkifli.

The regulation on limiting the age of motorised vehicles in Jakarta was first proposed by the former Governor of DKI Jakarta, Anies Baswedan. According to the Governor’s Instruction No. 66/2019, motorised vehicles that will be subjected to a ban are cars and motorbikes older than 10 years. This means that, from the year 2024, vehicles that can no longer run in Jakarta are those that were first manufactured in the year 2014 or earlier.

Although the government has yet to officially specify which motorized vehicles will be banned, some of the types of motorized vehicles that could potentially be banned soon, according to news outlet Pikiran Rakyat, are:

  • Toyota Avanza Gen 2
  • Daihatsu Xenia Gen 2
  • Toyota Innova Gen 1
  • Toyota Fortuner Gen 2
  • Mitsubishi Pajero Sport Gen 2
  • Honda Mobilio Gen 1 and Gen 2
  • Suzuki Ertiga Gen 1
  • Honda Jazz Gen 1 and Gen 2
  • Honda Brio Gen 1
  • Daihatsu Ayla Gen 1
  • Toyota Agya Gen 1
  • Toyota Vios Gen 2
  • Nissan X-Trail Gen 1
  • Nissan X-Trail Gen 2
  • Honda City Gen 4
  • Honda City Gen 5
  • Honda Civic Gen 8
  • Honda Civic Gen 9
  • Honda Freed Gen 1
  • Nissan Livina Gen 1
  • Isuzu Panther Gen 2 Facelift 2
  • Suzuki Grand Escudo
  • Suzuki Grand Vitara Gen 3
  • Mitsubishi Colt T120SS

Zulkifli further explained that this restriction is an effort by the DKI Jakarta Provincial Government to encourage the people of Jakarta to utilise public transportation, manage congestion caused by private vehicles in the province, and reduce emissions resulting from commercial motorised vehicles.

“Once our public transportation is good and easy to access, we must impose restrictions on private vehicles, and people will switch to using public transportation with well-managed traffic conditions,” concluded Zulkifli.
