The Effect of Public Transportation Management to the City Planning in Medan

- Alfonsius, Marlon Sihombing, - Rujiman, Agus Purwoko


The movement of human flows, vehicles, and goods leads to various interactions. Almost all interactions require us to travel. Therefore, the result is the movement of traffic flows. In general, transportation planning makes interaction as easy and efficient as possible. Transportation management is an integral part of city planning. The city plan will cause many traffic problems without considering the transportation patterns. Good urban transportation systems should make public transportation the primary means of mobility; however, people are still reluctant to use public transport in developing countries such as Indonesia. There are still many people who prefer to use private transportation. This study aims to analyze the effect of public transportation management on city planning in Medan. The samples of this research are all the users of public transportations at Medan who are 400 people. The collection methods are coming interviews, distribution of questionnaires, and documentary studies. The data analysis method used in this study is the multiple regression linear analysis. The research results showed that simultaneous transportation encompasses means of transportation, transport infrastructure, service quality, accessibility, public transport routes, and the integration of modes. These significantly affect city planning in Medan, with mode integration being a partially dominant factor of influence. The services of different ways of transport should be integrated with an easy and convenient mode transfer scope.
