Abstract


The development of Kupang City can be observed from the increase of activity or movement of society, so that city needs the existence of a system of transportation service and satisfied traffic. One of the facilities of urban transportation is a station that serves as a node point, can be considered as a tool to process loading and discharge passengers. Station has the complexity of the problem and affects the movement of public transport. The lack of public transportation operating at Oebobo Station is one of the phenomena in Kupang City. This research was conducted to examine the performance of the station to the movement pattern by reviewed at the location effectiveness, operational service, and transportation movement towards the pattern of public transportation movement in Kupang City. The purpose of research to see the effect of station performance on the pattern of movement and the influence of spatial structure on movement patterns by using quantitative approach. The data obtained through observation, survey and documentation are analyzed by using path analysis, and then tested simultaneously and partially. The results show that the performance of the station in supporting the movement of Kupang City is a sufficient. Location effectiveness, service operation, and transportation movement have significant effect simultaneously to movement pattern in Kupang City. Partially shows that the movement of transportation (destination, transportation route, and passenger safety) and the insufficiency of public transportation operating at Oebobo Station have an impact on the reduction of station performance grade.
