Smart Mobility For Rural Areas: Effect Of Transport Policy And Practice

[Full Text]

Smart Mobility, Rural Areas, Transport Policy, Practice.



The strategy in managing cities to remain in a condition of sustainability is to implement Smart City (SC) policies, which are policies that can integrate information and communication systems into various technical systems and infrastructure of a city. However, the change in infrastructure, land use makes the tab development, regional development will increase mobility transportation access. One of the policies that support the success of the SC policy in Indonesia is the policy in the field of transportation in order to anticipate changes in the characteristics of mobility in peripheral areas. This study will measure the success of transportation policies in anticipating an increase in the frequency of trips, expansion of the distribution of trips and changes in the choice of transportation modes to achieve sustainable transportation in rural areas. The research methodologies with survey used was a mobility analysis survey in the Mijen District, Semarang City, Indonesia. The steps taken in data collection are, first, the frequency of the trip is measured based on the trip generation model by considering the variables of vehicle ownership, public income, public transport rates, public transport comfort, public transport driver behavior and public transportation comfort. Second, the distribution of travel and the choice of transportation mode is a reflection of the desire of the community to achieve the destination of the trip and the chosen mode of transportation. The results of the study show that the latest transportation policy in the form of the operation of the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) and online transportation implemented by the government greatly influences mobility in the periphery, namely first narrowing the gap in the demand and supply transportation balance.
