Proportion of motorcycles in large cities in Indonesia as a developing country is around 60%-71% of all vehicles and increases 19%-37%every year. Data from Indonesia Statistics Centre Bureau indicated that number of motorcycle increase from 13,563,017 in 2000 to 92,976,240 in 2014. This condition leads worse traffic congestion in large cities and more specific at signalized intersections. Motorcycles usually stop everywhere including among cars and in front of stop-line at signalized intersection during red time period. One of solutions to reduce the poor traffic congestion is implementation of exclusive stopping space (ESS) for motorcycle. Manual of ESS for motorcycle in Indonesia is used as a guidance of implementation. The aim of this study is to determine signalized intersections that need ESS for motorcycle, determine the type, and then evaluate the implementation. This study is specific, important, and crucial to do because usually exclusive stopping space in developed countries is for bicycle. Case study is carried out at all signalized intersections in large city Bandung in Indonesia. Results of study indicated that ESS for motorcycle is needed with 52.2%-100% effectiveness. Furthermore, recommendation that could be provided is more specific ESS guidance for existing variation of lane widths.
