Shopping activities are an integral part of daily activities for people, and the growing existence of application-based transport mode, well known as ride-sourcing, gives an additional options. Ride-sourcing is believed to change travel behaviors of travelers especially for non-mandatory trips. As a relatively new mode, it is necessary to learn more about the ride-sourcing usage characteristics for shopping trips from experience in developing countries. This study aims to analyze the characteristics of ride-sourcing for shopping activities including the users. Data was collected using questionnaire distributed to households in Bandung City, West Java, Indonesia, and analyzed by employing binary logistic regression. Data shows that even ride-sourcing is famous, ride-sourcing is used as additional mode only and not as the primary mode for travel. Estimated model shows that the number of applications owned by users provide an ability for users to select shorter waiting time. Model also shows that travel charges become the most important reason in deciding the usage of ride-sourcing. This study reveals the fact that this application based service do not change fully the travelers’ behavior.
