Abstract

Generally, driving a personal car to access the public transport network should not be actively encouraged due to impact on traffic movement slowly. However many parts of the state lie within rural areas where public transport, no matter how much improved, is unlikely to be attractive enough to persuade the majority such car users to adopt use of public transport services.Park and Ride (P&R) were seen as a cheaper alternative to encourage people out of their cars and onto buses and a generally more environmentally acceptable policy. Penang State Government has committed significant money to implement the P&R program on the shuttle bus services start from March, 2011 which know as BEST service.While such program is popular with commuters, questions remain over the role of park and ride in increasing public transport patronage. The study identify the peak hour of the return routes of P&R users.The methodology of the study was used qualitative comparative analysis.The finding is that comparative between highest and lowest numbers of P&R users for each month in order to reduce the commuting time.The results show that commuting time is depending on peak hour of return routes of P&R program.
