GoCar’s New Algorithm helps you match with Ganjen, Jakarta’s Odd-Even Traffic Policy
Everyone must feel that the streets of Jakarta are getting ever so crowded, so Ganjen is everywhere. Yes, the Ganjen or odd-even (ganjil-genap) traffic policy region is indeed getting wider, but there is no need to worry because you can still order GoCar from anywhere in Jakarta!
We really understand that you were worried about how to book a GoCar every Monday to Friday, from 6:00 to 10:00 WIB or 16:00 to 21:00 WIB. The ‘what ifs’ are getting inside your head because all the regions below are in the Ganjen area.
List of odd-even traffic policy areas in Jakarta:
- Jalan Medan Merdeka Barat
- Jalan MH Thamrin
- Jalan Jenderal Sudirman
- Part of Jalan Jenderal S Parman, starting from the intersection of Jalan Tomang Raya to the intersection of Jalan KS Tubun.
- Gatot Subroto street
- Jalan MT Haryono
- Jalan HR Rasuna Said
- Road in Panjaitan
- Jalan Jenderal Ahmad Yani (starting from the Perintis Kemerdekaan Street intersection to the Bekasi Timur Raya Jalan intersection)
- South Big Door Road
- Jalan Gajah Mada
- Hayam Wuruk Street
- Majapahit Street
- Sisingamangaraja Street
- Jalan Panglima Polim
- Jalan Fatmawati Hospital (from the intersection of Jalan Ketimun 1 to the Jalan TB Simatupang intersection)
- Suryopranoto Street
- Jalan Balikpapan
- Jalan Kyai Caringin
- Jalan Tomang Raya
- Jalan Pramuka
- Jalan Salemba Raya to the west and Jalan Salemba Raya to the east to Jalan Diponegoro intersection
- Jalan Kramat Raya
- Jalan Senen Station
- Jalan Gunung Sahari
But calm down! This time you can go through these Ganjen areas. You don't need to go around looking for alternative routes, because Gojek now has a solution with the new GoCar algorithm that will automatically find the closest route based on your pick-up and drop-off points. If the closest route to your destination must pass through one of the Ganjen areas listed above on odd-even traffic policy come into effect, then you will get a vehicle with a license plate that matches your order date.
Try to imagine that before you ordered GoCar in Blok M with the destination point of Plaza Indonesia and it turned out that you got a number plate that did not match the odd-even traffic policy, you could have spent hours just looking for a diversion route.
This algorithm also applies to you who order to and from areas not located in the Ganjen area but must pass through one of the Ganjen areas because it is the fastest route. For example, you order GoCar in the Kemang area to Senen Station. No need to go all the way back and forth through Jalan Soepomo, just through Jalan Rasuna Said using GoCar, it is safe to passes through Ganjen areas! With the new algorithm from GoCar, now you and Ganjen are a match! #ThereIsAlwaysAWay with Gojek!
