Abstract

Surabaya, as a metropolitan city, has a population of around 3 million. The city, which is part of the northern route of the island of Java, has become the current urbanization of Indonesian society. The high population density and high economic activity cause severe congestion problems in Surabaya. Besides, the number of private vehicle users has also increased, alleged to have triggered congestion in Surabaya city. Apart from causing congestion, it can also reduce the quality of life, such as human health and social impacts on the environment. The results from this study show that there are several models and strategies in the development of an ecologically-based sustainable transportation system in Surabaya, one of which is the Suroboyo bus. The suroboyo bus payment policy that uses plastic bottle waste has become an attraction for the community to make the Suroboya bus alternative transportation to replace private vehicles.
