Abstract

This research paper aims to identify aspects that affect walking comfort. This research was triggered by the different conditions of pedestrian paths in Jakarta. Some areas in Jakarta lack the proper infrastructures that provide an optimal space for a human to walk comfortably. But how do we know that a pedestrian path is deemed comfortable by its users? Which aspects play a role to affect comfort? This research will try to look for these aspects so future urban designers will take them into consideration when designing a comfortable pedestrian path. There are a lot of theories about pedestrian and comfort, but we have selected 6 important aspects of pedestrian paths that provide comforting feeling to pedestrians. The more aspects the pedestrian has, the higher the sense of comforting feeling the users can feel.
