Abstract

The high level of road density in Jabodetabek that caused by urban sprawl phenomenon prompted the government to increase the number of commuter who use Jabodetabek Commuter Line Rail (KRL). According to that, women commuters have higher participation in using mass public transportation than men. However, it must be supported by a service system that accommodates their needs. Therefore, the research about the characteristics of women commuters using KRL is important to analyse the KRL service system quality which accommodate their needs. It refers to four variables: Age, income level, destination distance, and marital status, collected by questionnaire. The questionnaire was distributed to 120 respondents who were daily commuters and users between 2013-2020. The reasons for participation were collected by an in-depth interview with 15 informants who were also part of the respondents. The result is the service system in KRL (facility design, cost, access, and time travel) caused women commuter KRL users are dominated by productive age with varying income levels, married, and do activities in areas 1-3 km from a station. The conclusion is not all women commuters in Jabodetabek participate to use KRL because the service system has not accommodated all their needs.
