Did The Abolishment of 3-in-1 Really Make Jakarta Traffic Better?

Friday, April 22, 2016

Just a few days ago, the Jakarta local government finally retired the 3-in-1 traffic law - a rule that required all non-commercial vehicles to carry a minimum of 3 people during certain rush hour times on a few of Jakarta's main roads. Indonesia being Indonesia, a new form of "service" quickly surfaced - people offering themselves as ride-along buddies to make up for the 2nd (or 3rd) person to pass through such zones for a small fee between 10.000 - 20.000 Rupiahs.  

Given this, the local government deemed the rule as a waste of time and recently abolished it, most probably until an E-Tag solution is put in place. 

So, did traffic actually improve or get worse post 3-in-1? Here's a quick infographic based on conversations on Twitter on the situation - which areas got worse and which did actually show signs of improvement. 

Happy commuting!
