Abstract:Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) is an urban development strategy focusing on concentrating many activities into a transit node. This study sees the opportunity to synergise and develop creative industries (CI) with TOD. This study explores the TOD potential of Kampung Binong, Kampung Cigadung, and Kampung dago of Bandung, Indonesia, to propose recommendations that support CI growth through TOD dimensions. This study focuses on researching the relationship between the concepts of TOD and CI development and assessing the potential based on the context of each study case. Policy recommendations for integrating TOD and CI were formulated based on the results of the contextualisation through the local government’s policies and the survey of the communities. This study produced a model of the TOD potentials of the three kampungs and found that the three studied kampungs, on average, have a ‘Moderate Potential’ to be developed as a TOD node, which, hypothetically, would support CI development in the kampungs. Based on those results, this study detects which indicators need improvements in each kampung. For example, all three studied cases are lacking ‘pedestrian infrastructure availability’, ‘bike lanes availability’, and ‘distance to transit node’. For Binong which has a rather dense area with small roads, vehicle restriction or time restriction from motoric vehicle and an addition of one transit node to shuttle the kampung to the nearest train station and bus stop was recommended. In Cigadung, three additional transit nodes to shuttle the kampung to a bus terminal and bus stop were recommended to improve its TOD potential. Lastly, due to its street characteristics, building sidewalks for pedestrian and adding two transit nodes to connect the kampung Dago to the bus terminal were recommended. This study managed to investigate the general picture of the TOD potential of the studied creative kampungs by integrating the government’s local policy on TOD and the needs of the CIs community, as well as proposed strategy recommendations that were tailored specifically for each kampungs for future policymaking.
