Jakarta is one of the most polluted cities in the world. Motor vehicles contribute 60-70 % of air pollution from the spread of pollutants emitted from motor vehicle. Although Jakarta has a total open space of 33%, including unbuilt area, which should restore the polluted air derived from motor vehicle emission, it appears that the green areas can not fully improve the air quality of Jakarta. This study was aimed to find a model of the relationship between emissions and quality of urban green areas. Based on the ANOVA analysis, model of relationship is built between primary pollutant emissions and the quality of urban green areas namely the distribution of green space, plants types, density, area of observations, rainfall and volume of traffic. Based on the sixth models that were built, there are some relationship between the contaminant emissions with green urban areas based on the relationship between the quality of of primary pollutants distribution and quality of green areas. The concentration of primary pollutants are CarbonMonoxide (CO), Hidro Carbon (HC), NitrogenDioxides (NO2), Sulfur Dioxides (SO2 ), Particled Material (PM10 ) and Total Suspended Material (TSP) emitted in ten areas of Jakarta influenced by the quality of green areas.
