Civil Engineering Departement, Universitas Indonesia, Indonesia
The government of South Sumatera Province, decided to build Light Rail Transit (LRT) in Palembang City with the route from Sultan Mahmud Badaruddin II Airport to Jakabaring area to address the health, social and economic impacts from traffic congestion. However, will the development of LRT in Palembang city be enough to prevent total traffic congestion in 2019 and utilized by the people of Palembang City who have been accustomed to using private vehicles? With this rationale, the Transit Oriented Development (TOD) theory was adopted in this study as the answer to those questions. This study focused on analyzing the potential application of the TOD concept on the Simpang Polda Station Area by using several ‘TOD-ness’ measurement indicators from some previous research and TOD Standard by ITDP . Using 8 new potential indicators, the assessment of the potential application of the TOD concept on the Palembang City LRT Simpang Polda showed that this transit area has enough potential for the implementation of the TOD concept by applying several supporting development plans.
