Abstract

Transit-Oriented Developments (TOD) which promotes high density and mixed-use development around transit centres may affect the success of mass rapid transit. This paper analyses the correlation between land use, economic activities around the stations, and the number of riders using the LRT Kelana Jaya Line in Subang Jaya, Malaysia as the case study. It compares the ridership data with Land Use Public Transport Accessibility Index (LUPTAI) for selected stations. This study finds that there is a positive correlation between the LUPTAI and the ridership numbers, suggesting that land use developments around the stations do affect the ridership.   

Keywords: Transit-oriented development; land use; ridership.
