Abstract

Greater Kuala Lumpur is striving to pursue efficiency and liveability by maximising urban productivity while simultaneously continuing its intensive urbanisation. Thus, the expansion and enhancement of its public transport provide opportunities for transit-oriented developments (TODs) near designated stations. The public’s understanding and expectation of this model of urban planning are examined and factor analysis is used to reveal the underlying TOD factors, which relate to a conducive and seamless pedestrian environment, affordability, quality of the public transport system, pedestrian amenities and a compact and mixed-development concept. This paper identifies how development projects can become transit-oriented to enhance sustainable mobility behaviours.
