Abstract


Sustainable transportation becomes very important in a certain town since it can influence the
development of the town itself. One of the sustainable transportations is angkot (urban public
transportation). Urban public transportation is one of the means of land transportation which
is mostly used in big towns in Indonesia, including Medan. The aim of the study was to
analyze the influence of public participation on sustainable transportation and regional
development in Medan. There were 400 respondents who used urban public transportation in
Medan. They were divided proportionally into 21 sub-districts in Medan. The data were
analyzed by using Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) with an AMOS version 18 program.
The hypothetical test was obtained by seeing the probability value or by seeing the
significance of the correlation of each variable such as public participation, sustainable
transportation, and regional development. The result of the study showed that there was the
influence of public participation on sustainable transportation and regional development in
Medan. Public participation could also directly influence regional development in Medan.
