The purpose of this study is to review the general perception of Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) 'Trans Jakarta' users in Jakarta on the aspects related to amenities and facilities for the last mile journey. The objectives of the study will have two folds: First, to determine the acceptable distance of walking and preferable condition for pedestrian pathway based on the opinion questionnaire survey, and; secondly, to understand factors determining comfort facilities in the area of BRT's shelter based on the approach of Theory Planned Behavior (TPB).

Related to BRT shelters majority of users considered the facilities of BRT shelter are less comfortable and did not have a good aesthetic. Moreover, continuing from the platform to pedestrian sideway is affecting the users' from choosing BRT.
