REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, JAKARTA – Soegijapranata Catholic University Transportation Observer questioned the markers of online taxis when entering odd-even streets. So far, there are no markers for private cars and online taxis.
“What is the sign, there is no sign, there is no sticker. How can it be for the Police to check it, “Djoko said, Wednesday (8/21).
Even though it is distinguished from the Motor Vehicle Number (TNKB), according to Djoko, it is still considered difficult to check directly. The check must involve the Ministry of Transportation for its arrangements.
“If it has to be use a sticker, it means that the PM for Special Rent Transport must be revised and the sticker that will be use is cannot be duplicated and for anyone who commits the violation will be fined , “he said.
In the Ministerial Regulation Number 118 Year 2018 regarding the Implementation of Special Lease Transportation, it does not regulate the markers that distinguish online taxis from private cars. That rule was in the previous regulation in Ministerial Regulation 26 of 2017 concerning Arranging Transportation of People with Public Motor Vehicles Not in Route.
However, due to the demands of online taxi partners and the Kemenhub agreement, the sticker was finally removed. Djoko added that the government and the community must monitor the even-odd impacts on the use of public transportation.
” The even odd number successful or not, the indicators are public transportation. Try to check the using of Transjakarta, MRT, and KRL, “he said.
Previously, DKI Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan claimed he would consider online taxis going into odd-even areas. Likewise, the Minister of Transportation, Budi Karya Sumadi, will coordinate with the Governor of DKI Jakarta regarding the proposed online taxi drivers.
The Governor of DKI Jakarta has issued Governor Instruction Number 66 of 2019 Air Quality Control regulating some of them including age restrictions on private vehicles, and even-odd extensions.
The even-number expansion is planned to be implemented on September 9, 2019.
Following are the odd-even new routes in Jakarta, Jalan Pintu Besar Selatan, Gajah Mada Street, Hayam Wuruk Street, Majapahit Street, Sisingamangaraja Street, Panglima Polim Street, Fatmawati Street (starting at Jalan Ketimun 1 intersection to TB Simatupang intersection) Next, Jalan Suryopranoto, Jalan Balikpapan, Jalan Kyai Caringin, Jalan Tomang Raya, Jalan Pramuka, Jalan Salemba Raya, Jalan Kramat Raya, Jalan Senen Raya, and Mt. Sahari.
Odd-even applies Monday-Friday, excluding national holidays, from 06.00-10.00 WIB and 16.00-21.00 WIB. Vehicles with odd number plates operate on odd date, whereas vehicles with even number plates operate on an even date.
