Mass rapid transit in Jakarta has created rampant sprawl in the surrounding areas of development. In certain areas, intense planning ensures the well-being of the inhabitants by referring to development principles laid out to accommodate communities with high levels of transit. The act of transit is required to fulfill one's physical or mental needs when remaining in a specific area prevents that from being accomplished. The principles referred to are walkability and intelligibility which give way to an ideal area development, whereas, areas that develop spontaneously without proper planning frequently become kampungs (urban slums). Kampungs are common around unplanned transit areas because of the need to commute daily by the working class. Unplanned communities encourage certain lifestyles, such as living near transit stations (walkability) and developing a perception of their surroundings (intelligibility). This paper will observe Kampung Muka in North Jakarta and determine if the principles of Transit-Oriented Development (hereinafter, TOD) are applicable to this area. The case study was chosen because of its proximity to major sites in Jakarta, such as Kota Tua, Jakarta Kota Station and Kampung Bandan Station. In this paper, our observations will analyze whether Kampung Muka applies TOD principles daily. To observe the applications of these principles, methods used include literature and morphological studies of the development, circulation and access, and intelligibility of locals towards the kampung. From these observations, we conclude the incorporation of TOD principles in the daily lives of Kampung Muka's residents would create an assimilation process aligning their core values with these respective principles.
