Ride-hailing company Grab has launched a specially designed algorithm to support Jakarta’s odd-even policy.

Grab will implement a specially designed algorithm for its GrabCar service to support the filtering functions and match odd-even license plates to the date, time and pick-up destination.

The Jakarta city administration is currently applying an odd-even license plate policy on all major thoroughfares in Jakarta from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. The policy aims to reduce Jakarta’s traffic congestion during the 2018 Asian Games, slated to run from Aug. 18 to Sept. 2, and the Asian Para Games from Oct. 6 to 13.

The algorithm is designed to automatically and efficiently add a series of filters to ensure GrabCar users quickly receive a booking on-demand. Starting August 8, it will be more convenient for GrabCar users to find a ride to commute to and from the areas where odd-even number policy is implemented.

“Grab is committed to solving real and local transportation challenges to make transport freedom a reality for people across Southeast Asia. This filtering and matching algorithm will be rolled out in support of the Indonesian government’s efforts to control the volume of private vehicles during peak hours in the capital, enabling our passengers to have a convenient, safe, and reliable means of transportation,” said Bernard Hosanna, Country Product Lead for Grab Indonesia.

Bernard further explained that through this improvement to our booking system, Grab demonstrates our ability to find innovative ways to provide a seamless & convenient experience for our passengers. “Our passengers can rest assured that they will be allocated the right car plated number according to the date and time when traveling to and from the affected areas. It will also be easier for our driver partners in doing their job. They will no longer need to worry getting a job to the affected area when the date doesn’t match with their license plate,” Bernard concluded.
