Abstract

In order to encourage the usage of public transportation in university campus, the service itself should be improved in the first place. This paper discusses the pattern of mode trip and the perception of current in campus transportation services from the point of view of campus community. From 288 out of 300 questionnaires, 13.6 % of responses came from UKM campus staff (faculty and university department) and 86.4% from students (undergraduate and postgraduate). Results show that there are about 18% of the campus community walking, 31% ride campus bus, and the rest 50% use private transportation to travel to the campus. Most of the campus community preferred walking within the distance of 100 meters and below for on-campus trip, but the travel modes varies when the trip distance exceeds 100 meters. Schedule inefficiency and comfortably level are being addressed as the main problems faced by the public transportation users in the campus.
