Bali Needs Off-Street Parking

Transportation Group Wants Bali Government to Require Businesses to Provide Off-Street Parking

(9/21/2012) A group calling itself the People’s Group for Indonesian Transportation (Masyarakat Transportasi Indonesia – MTI) has called on the provincial government of Bali and the municipal administration of Denpasar to bring greater order to cars parking on the island’s roads.

Beritabali.com reports that MTI has also called on the provincial administration to require local businesses to provide off-street parking to eliminate the need for street side parking.

The chairman of MTI, Danang Parikesit, attending a tourism meeting on Tuesday, September 18, 2012 convened to discuss traffic congestion in Bali, blamed street side parking as a major cause of traffic jams in Bali.

Pariskesit said cars park on the roadsides reduces the carrying capacity of roads by between 10-15%

The MTI leader also called on the provincial government of Bali to increase the number of busses and the coverage network of the Sarbagita Bus System as a further means of reducing traffic congestion.
