The Jogjakarta economy is largely dependent on education and tourism industry. The emerging dominance of private transport has reached to a degrading traffic conditions. Severe traffic congestions and high level of air pollution have been affecting the attractiveness of Jogjakarta, a popular tourism city in Indonesia. Unless a new approach of urban transport system development, it is feared that the amount of visitors will keep declining and hence affecting the city economy. From the awareness of the increasingly complex issues, the Ministry of Transportation of Indonesia enacted a decree No 51 of 2007 promoting pilot cities for land transport improvement. This paper originally examines the existing transport policy framework before and after new transit, TransJogja, implementation. The impact of service quality policies on visitor’s willingness to take trip by transit is then investigated by using SEM model. From organizational structure point of view, there are only two institutions in terms of urban public transport management at city level, i.e. the city government as the regulator and operators as the service provider. There is no direct relation between the two institutions that can be used to develop the system and to encourage the number of passengers. More than two years after TransJogja was launched, the Cities Development Initiative for Asia (CDIA) was appointed to undertake a review of the urban transport plans for Jogjakarta and the surrounding urban area, however, over three years later the provincial, city and regency governments are in complete support of the strategy of the conducted research and in particular the improvements proposed. According to SEM results, rather than TranJogja service quality, , the information and English guidance factor is the main consideration for the foreign users to travel by the transit.
