Today, Jogja is testing a car free day area in Malioboro, the main street in Jogja. Car free day is a day where cars are prohibited to enter some roads in certain area. It has been used in Jakarta in many main roads, but in Jogja, the testing was done only in Malioboro.
It lasted only up to 11 AM, so after that, it become so crowded as people started to entered
I think it's a good idea to have a car free day in Malioboro. I hope it soon be a weekly events and not only in Malioboro, but also in many other main roads in Jogja.
