During the 2024 Eid holiday from April 6th to 15th, the Polda Metro Jaya Police will temporarily suspend the odd-even policy. For 10 days, 26 roads will be accessible without the odd-even restrictions, similar to normal days.

This decision follows Governor Regulation Number 88 of 2019, Article 3, Paragraph 3, which states that traffic restrictions using an odd-even system are not applicable on Saturdays, Sundays, and national holidays designated by the Presidential Decree. Additionally, Polda Metro Jaya also announced that car-free days will not be observed on April 7th and April 14th.
