Abstract

After the opening of Cipularang (Cikampek-Purwakarta-Padalarang) toll road in 2005 trips between Jakarta Bandung vv using road based transport increase significantly. Previously rail based transport was more popular to connect Jakarta and Bandung. However shorter travel time through the toll road encourages mode shift to road based transport, not only to private transport but also to scheduled minibuses and buses services. Nowadays the competition between scheduled minibus companies is quite tight. This is beneficial for the users in terms of wide choice of origin and destination in Jakarta and in Bandung. Competition between providers also maintains the price of the services to be reasonable. Some of the providers even diversified their services into door to door services both for passengers and parcels. One of the largest company providing Jakarta-Bandung vv service is X-Trans. This paper will discuss characteristics of X-Trans Jakarta-Bandung minibus service. The characteristics of X-Trans users will also be discussed.
