Abstract

Many studies have concluded that commuting activities have an impact on the quality of life of commuters on physical, mental/psychological, health, and social/environmental aspects. The objective of this study is to determine the quality of life of commuting workers who use busway Transjakarta and train commuter line modes of transportation from Bogor to Jakarta and the influencing factors. This study was conducted using cross sectional design with WHO Quality of Life BREF questionnaire. The result was analyzed using univariate and bivariate by Chi square. The result shows the respondents have used train commuter line for ≥ 4 years (50.6%) while workers using the Transjakarta for <4 years are 52.5% with the frequency of ten times a week for train commuter line (72.4%). The quality of life of the users of commuter line and busway Transjakara is categorized as good by percentage of 57.1% and 70%. The psychological and environmental domains have the highest scores on both transportation modes, while the physical domain has the lowest score. The bivariate analysis reveals that the quality of life of workers using train commuter line is affected by income and psychological conditions, while that of the workers using busway Transjakarta is affected by the types of work.
