Transport Demand Management Strategy Priority Assessment Based on Expert Judgment




analytical hierarchy process, judgment, medium city, priority, transportation demand management


The main problem of transportation is the very high growth of vehicles causing congestion, resulting in various derivative impacts such as pollution, fuel waste, time value, and other environmental problems. This problem can be solved by Transportation Demand Management (TDM). TDM is a combination of various strategies, which strategy should be chosen whose priority depends on the conditions of each region. This research was conducted in a medium-scale city by determining the priority of TDM using the Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) tool. The final result of the judgment is the priority weight of the TDM strategy that will be applied with a CR value of < 10%, namely the pull strategy. This strategy is represented by improving public transport services and infrastructure (especially the integration of public transport services). This study shows that the strategy group with a high AHP Consensus Index (ACI) score means a high consensus among experts.
