Abstract

The diversion of people towards public transportation has become the main focus of the Central Government and this involves rearranging the areas traversed by mass transportation corridors through the concept of transit-based integration known as the Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) in order to overcome congestion problems in Greater Jakarta, especially the Jakarta area. However, these plans have raised concerns on the ability of the transit-oriented area to fully accommodate the TOD concepts and principles or just to serve as only a part of the property business owned by several parties. The implementation of the concept is also not optimal due to the lack of an appropriate tool to identify the readiness of an area to be developed into a transit-oriented area by the government and the actions required to unlock the potentials of the development. This research, therefore, used 22 indicators to determine whether an area fulfills the transit-oriented elements and the factors required for its preparation. This involved using literature studies to produce research variables after which a survey was conducted and tested for validity and reliability by the drafter, academics, experts, and practitioners. The indicators were developed into an assessment instrument consisting of 5 parts to represent the research variables and other 23 questions.
