Analysis of Demand and Supply Gap on Mass Rapid Transit System: A Case Study of Bangkok and Jakarta Metropolitan Cities

An efficient mass rapid transit system in metropolitan cities is believed to be able to solve many transport-related issues such as congestion and emissions. However, some of the developing cities in Southeast Asia have to develop mass rapid transit systems effectively under a limited budget constraint to meet the ever-increasing travel demand. In this study, the demand and supply gaps in Jakarta, Indonesia, and Bangkok, Thailand were calculated by utilizing OD data and network data of respective cities using a normalized index approach. The results show that the proposed calculation method is appropriate, a comparison between each city with the proposed new network plan was done. In conclusion, this study has clarified the importance of estimating the demand and supply gaps in transportation planning. Nevertheless, further study is to be expected for this analysis to be able to evaluate a more detailed policy.
