Route Divert Behavior in Jakarta Electronic Road Pricing Policy Implementation

Muhamad Rizki, Rudy Hermawan Karsaman, Idwan Santoso, Russ Bona Frazila



The effectiveness of transportation demand
management policy depends on how commuters respond to it. This study attempts
to comprehend commuter behavior in choosing routes based on electronic road
pricing (ERP) policy implementation on the Sudirman and Kuningan corridors. The
experiments were conducted using the data collections from a stated preference
experiment in which each commuter makes a route choice with an alternative
representing a hypothetical situation with a combination of tariffs and travel
time in ERP policy implementation. Logit models found that the individual and
household variables influence route divert behavior. A commuter with a higher
income or more family members living together is more likely to have less
flexibility in diverting route. In addition, the distance of the trips affected
their route divert behavior and influenced an individual trip chain constrained
in time-space prism.
