Abstract
Malioboro Area is the city centre of Yogyakarta. It is a very busy area. There are many shops, public utilities and attractions in this area. Many visitors come to this area, especially during long weekends and holidays. There is a plan to close and pedestrianize Malioboro main street. Traffic surveys were carried out in Malioboro and the surrounding areas. JICA Strada transport modeling software has been used to analyze the effects of pedestrianization in this area. There are some alternatives, i.e.: pedestrianization for the whole area of Malioboro or pedestrianization for only a part of Malioboro. The research result shows that if scenario 1 is applied, the increase of traffic volume on the road network does not give significant impact towards its performance and it still resembles the existing condition. Furthermore, if the scenario 2 is implemented, there would be severe traffic jam on Jl. Mataram with DS value > 3,5 on the weekdays and DS>2 on the weekends. Therefore, if the local government policy related to Malioboro area arrangement is still implemented, the transportation management and transportation engineering must be improved, especially on Jl. Mataram. The OD matrix used is in the form of traffic volume data of the road network node selected for the study. As a result, it enables the achievement of high correlation value between real volume and existing volume of the result modeling.
