Measuring performance of Sustainable Urban Transport is an important effort to face the challenges of future trends. This study used Geographic Information System (GIS) application for modelling the performance of Sustainable Urban Transport (SUT) in the Jakarta city Region (JCR). The GIS applications include identifying the existing performance of SUT in Jakarta city, exploring the relationships between indicators of SUT, and producing a prediction model of SUT. Research methods used in this study were GIS techniques with geo-reference, classifications, polygon to raster, re-classifications, sum-weighted, ordinary least square (OLS), exploratory regression, and geographic weighted regression (GWR). The results revealed that the SUT model have more capability in measuring the performance of SUTs spatially and simply. This model is to visualize the effect of the indicator on the SUT performance and its influence, respectively. The results of this study also discovered that the JCR’s Sustainable Urban Transport Performance was in medium level. The outputs of this modelling were useful for evaluating the level of SUT performances in the city based on districts area. Overall, this study provides valuable information on the SUT performance of the JCR, also highlights some important challenges faced in the future of SUT program development. View Full-Text
