He explained DTKJ had submitted five main recommendations in support of the Langit Biru Jakarta program.
Those five recommendations were accelerating the making of regulations that regulate incentives for electric cars in Jakarta, accelerating the electrification of Transjakarta buses, implementing a paid road system, supporting regulations regarding restrictions on used car operations in Jakarta, and accelerating the electrification of transportation infrastructure.
"When many electric buses are operating, there needs to be a vehicle restriction program and Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) that can increase support for the Langit Biru Jakarta program," he stated.
