Civil Engineering Department, Udayana University
Motorization is becoming an issue of concerns for urban governments and citizens in Indonesian cities, including in Bali Province. The cities in Bali Province have not been served well by public transport services. Bali consists of 9 regions and this study focused on a typical low income region in Bali i.e. Tabanan Region as a case study. One way to measure public transport service quality is by measuring accessibility to public transport routes. The objective of this study is to investigate the accessibility of residents to public transport services in Tabanan Region. Accessibility to public transport services in Tabanan Region was analyzed based on travel distance and travel time to reach the closest public transport routes. Based on Z-score diagram, it was found that six zones were in quadrant A which means that these zones were in high accessibility category (Bongan, Gubug, DauhPeken, DelodPeken, DajanPeken and Denbatas. On the other hand, five zones were identified in quadrant D. These zones (Sudimara, Subamia, Buahan, Tunjuk and Wanasari) have a low accessibility values to reach public transport routes. Therefore, improvement of infrastructures and public transport services need to prioritize these five zones with low accessibility values.
Key words: accessibility / public transport / travel time / distance / Z-score
