The odd-even traffic policy will be extended along the Cikampek toll road, which connects Jakarta to Bekasi, West Java, from next week after a government announcement.
Bambang Prihartono, Head of the Greater Jakarta Transportation Body (BPTJ), said the new policy could help encourage the people to use public transportation instead of private vehicles. It applies during rush hours both in the morning and in the afternoon.
The odd-event traffic regulation was first implemented on Jakarta’s main roads, rotating the days private vehicles are allowed to operate based on the final digit of the license plate.
