Household preferences for sustainable urban forms in Jabotabek metropolitan area, Indonesia: survey, model and evaluation

To explore sustainable urban forms for developing countries, this study conducts a stated preference survey in Jabotabek metropolitan area, Indonesia, to examine households' preferences for different types of urban forms focusing on the integration of land use and transportation. The alternatives in the survey include nine types of urban forms defined by the combinations of three residential areas (compact city, transit-oriented city, and modern suburbs) and three commuting modes (car, bus, and train). A stated preference survey shows that living in a compact city and commuting by train is the most preferred urban form, followed by the compact city and transit-oriented city supported by bus system. With respect to any residential area, respondents show the lowest preference for car-commuting. To incorporate heterogeneity in a household's stated choice behavior, a random-coefficient logit (RCL) model is established to represent the household's choices about the nine alternatives. The RCL models and simulation analyses suggest that sustainable urban forms mostly support transit services.
