Malang city as the second biggest city in East Java Province tends to be less convenient recently. The traffic jam almost happen every day. The situations lead to the jay walking pedestrians. This case study analyzed the convenience component of walkability (CCW) at the street corridors around Alun-Alun Merdeka (AAM) and Alun-Alun Bunder (AAB). The CCW variables consist of the pedestrian infrastructure (PI). The PI indicators were the obstructions, cleanliness-maintenance, amenities and diffable supports. The PI data collecting method was adopted from the global walkability survey guide book and modified to suit the condition. The PI data were scored from 1-5 for semantic scale. The data were analyzed by descriptive-quantitative-interpretive methods. The score results was 2,31 (at range: bad to fair) thus the PI need to be improved. It concluded that ‘roofing’ indicator played the important role due to the convenience and needed to conduct next research to study other factors.
