Cycle rickshaws (becak) are still available in some areas in the city. Becak is the only method of transportation currently forbidden to operate in Jakarta as its slow speed has allegedly led to congestion in the traffic of Jakarta. However, since South Tangerang is located on the outskirts of Jakarta (instead of the city proper), it is allowed in the city.

It was free until end of 2015, but only operated between 06:00–09:00, 11:00-14:00 and 16:00–18:00 with notation time of serve will be added as needed.
