Abstract

Enhancing a bus transit system is a possible solution to the growth of congestion in urban areas. Issues related to the safety of bus passengers, either on board or during their travel to a bus stop, should be considered. This article presents a GIS method to identify risky bus stops on a single bus route in the Serdang and Seri Kempangan area according to three attributes: location, characteristics, and surface. The aim is to improve the safety of bus stops in the area. Results show that GIS is a good tool to achieve the purpose of this study.
