Dicky Kurniawan, Mutia Yuantisya, Jakarta – The Transportation Office of Jakarta applies a disincentive tariff for vehicles failing and/or have not done the emissions test in the form of the highest parking charges.
Jakarta Task Force for Air Pollution spokesperson Ani Ruspitawati said that the policy is based on Governor Regulation No. 66 of 2020 on emissions tests.
According to Ani, the disincentive tariff is intended to force residents of Jakarta to use public transportation and reduce dependency on private vehicles.
"Every vehicle that has, or has not, or does not pass the emissions test will be detected by 10 parking areas owned by the government through its plate number which is integrated with the Environmental Office," he said in a written statement quoted by Tempo today, Friday, September 8, 2023.
The disincentive fee calculation is provided in the Governor Regulation No. 31 of 2017 on Parking Services Fee. Four-wheel vehicles or cars will be charged Rp7,500 per hour progressively at every parking location managed under the city government.
However, at Park and Ride locations, four-wheel vehicles are charged Rp7,500 flat or paid once. The highest parking charges policy has not been implemented for two-wheel vehicles or motorcycles.
