Traffic congestion is a problem for every city in Java Island, Indonesia, including Bogor City. Factors causing congestion in Bogor City are thought to come from land use, the geometry and performance of road, and public transport routes (urban transport). The change of urban transportation (angkot) route carried out by Bogor City Government aims to reduce traffic density and congestion, but it is not a guarantee that the main problem will be solved. This study aims to determine the spatial patterns of traffic density and congestion with current angkot routes and to construct a model to predict traffic density and congestion when new angkot routes are used. Variables in this research are land use (number of schools and markets/malls), geometry and performance of road (vehicle volume, road capacity, average velocity, road type, number of lanes, number of signalled and non-signal intersection), and an angkot route passing a road. The method used in modelling is multiple regression using one dummy variable and a stepwise regression method. The result of modelling shows that the variables affecting traffic density are velocity, some signalled and nonsignal intersection, and angkot route with R2 value 66.9%. At the same time, the influential variables in the traffic congestion model are vehicle volume, road capacity, number of the signalled intersection, and angkot route with R2 value 81.4%. To see accuracy in predicting model of traffic density and congestion, Mean Absolute Percentage Error (MAPE) validation is used. The results show a value of 12.46% for traffic density, which means that the model has good prediction accuracy and 5.62% for traffic congestion, which means the model has high prediction accuracy. Thus, in this study, the land use of school and market is not a factor causing traffic density and congestion, while the geometry and performance of roads and public transportation routes as a factor causing congestion.
