Therefore, the number of private cars will be reducing because we can take the LRT when we needs going to somewhere. Government should set up some talks to all people. These talks are about the advantages of taking the public transport. Besides that, government also can encourage citizens reduce using the private cars because it should be more expensive and inconvenient to take a car out on the road. For example, road tax of the private cars will be expiring after one year. Government can upgrade the quality of the public transport and make its comfortable, affordable and safe to take. Therefore, many people will choose taking the public transport more than using private cars especially students and workers. If the people will more likely to taking the public transport then the road capacity will increase and the problem of traffic congestion will be handling. For worker, use car pools are a good ways to reduce the traffic congestion at the office hours. Government can make some poster or advertisement talk about the advantages of car pools.

Besides that, government can use the advanced signals, traveler information and updates in real time and emergency evacuation management. Rather than waiting until there is an incident, government should improve technology to more proactive when it comes to traffic congestion.

2.2 The second view

The second view of other people say that it is the responsibility of individuals to use cars less and public transport more to reduce the problem of traffic congestion. As a citizens, we must support and cooperation with the government. Commuters must be willing to change our behavior related to reduce using the private cars. Therefore, we should support the government policies and follow the new policies to use more public transport. If can reduce the number of private cars so can increase the road capacity. We can use the public transport such as bus and LRT to substitute for the private cars. For example, students can use car pool and going to shopping or tuition together. We should follow the policies and decision is making by government.
