Surabaya Report: Improving Conditions for Non Motorized Transport

By international standards, Surabaya has an extremely high mode share of private motorized trips (predominantly motorcycle) relative to per capita incomes, despite the fact that average trip distances “as the crow flies” are extremely short. Nonmotorized trips are nonetheless a critical part of the transportation system, while collective forms of transport are much less important than in other regional cities of similar income and density.

This brief evaluates the existing characteristics of traffic in Surabaya and contains recommendations for expansions of the non-motorized transport network.
