Abstract

Sustainable transport has grow into an imperative goal for urban development and exploration in recent decades. Bicycle transportation as a non-motorised transport is indicate an imperative role in emerging sustainable transport. As the economy moved from unindustrialized base to industrial and amenities, the people tend to migrating at rising towns and cities. Thus, there has been an increasing of air pollution, high levels of utilization of biodiversity, isolation of city spaces, growth in the number of road traffic accidents and more urban change. The use of bicycle transportation is not only to decrease carbon but also to create the fit routine by physical movement. This research presents the bicycle route-choice model developed from Quantum Geographic Information System (QGIS) data for Ipoh town. An evaluation was through by transportation experts to collect data about the weights of the criteria and sub-criteria in this study. The consideration was prioritize the clusters by using the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP). The result of the study reveals that the priority factors concerned by experts in choosing bicycle route are the road characteristics (w = 0.588) and the traffic characteristics (w = 0.281). The facilities (w = 0.079) and land use characteristics (w = 0.052) are secondary considerations. These findings would encourage all interested municipalities to implement cycling as a part of transportation planning by determining key designing and planning factors to encourage cycling activities.
