Jakarta has been planning the MRT project since the 1980s, but it has been canceled several times for a number of reasons, including the economic crisis in 1990s. The implementation of sustainable Jakarta MRT entails coordination among different sectors and levels of government. An increase in public transport would be more realistic if accompanied by disincentive mechanisms for users of private vehicles on the one side and incentives for public transport users on the other. Like it or not, the city’s next job is to change people’s behaviours through both educative and repressive measures. Within the framework of an integrated MRT development, the government should start thinking about reliable feeders connecting MRT routes to settlement centres. In addition, pedestrian paths linking shelters to central business districts and offices need also be improved. In the long term, the growth of settlements and new activity centres in the city’s master plan needs to be integrated into the MRT. Building affordable apartments downtown to shorten residents’ commuting journeys is unavoidable. As experienced by such cities, the built environment has significant impacts on the activity-travel behavior of private housing residents, partly because they could self-select into the types of residential environment matching their travel preference.
