Indonesia Non Motorized Transport Case Study

18 April 2020

In 2019, 57 percent of Indonesia’s population of 157 million lived in urban areas. Indonesia’s growing cities are experiencing rapid motorisation: the number of cars increased six times while the number of motorcycles grew tenfold from 1995 to 2014. Rising motor vehicle use has led to pedestrian safety challenges and harmful levels of pollution. To tackle these challenges and encourage the use of sustainable modes, the country has adopted new standards for the design of walking and cycling facilities.
