Abstract

In addition to reliability and performance, convenience and aesthetics of the shelters/stations and pedestrian pathway for the last mile journey are the other factors that affected the interest of using public transportation. 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). Results showed that BRT users are willing to walk between 225 meters and 775 meters and prefer the pathway that is covered by shady trees or canopy structure. 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.
