, Jakarta - The flow of private vehicles during the Large-Scale Social Limitation or transition PSBB in DKI Jakarta has a percentage almost equal to the normal period or before the Corona pandemic.

"At present the number of private vehicle users in the capital is nearing the period before the pandemic, which is 96 percent," said DKI Jakarta Transportation Agency Head of Road Transportation Susilo Dewanto in an online discussion organized by the Institute of Transportation Studies (INSTRAN), Tuesday, June 30, 2020 .

The use of two-wheeled motor vehicles has a portion of 72.8 percent, followed by four-wheeled vehicles with a total of 26.5 percent. Heavy vehicles, namely buses or trucks with 0.7 percent.

The number of private vehicle usage, according to Susilo, was also affected by the policy of limiting the operation of public transportation in Jakarta such as the Jakarta MRT, Transjakarta, and Jakarta LRT. "People still have concerns about using public transportation," Susilo said.

Entering a new normal, the DKI Jakarta Transportation Agency invites the public to return to using public transportation. He said that currently the health protocol had been strictly implemented by the managers of public transportation services in Jakarta.

"We also hope to increase the use of bicycles as an alternative to encourage people to mobilize. It can also ease the burden of public transportation while capacity constraints are still being carried out," Susilo said.

The Indonesian Transport Associate Institute for Transportation and Development Policy (ITDP), Gandrie Ramadhan, suggested that public transport managers again promote the campaign so that people return to using public transportation. "Because now the service manager has also taken preventive measures to spread Covid-19, with a health protocol so that public transport is no longer feared as a cluster of Covid-19 deployment," Gandrie said.
