This article provides an overview of the influences of motorization trends on urban residents’ travel patterns in the JakartaMetropolitan Area (JMA) in the last decade. The performance of the first year of the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system implementation,as a way to suppress motorization in JMA, is also described. It is found that the trend of motorization has already become a criticalissue and suppressing the rapid increase of private cars is imperative. However, the existing public transport facilities are not adequatein fulfilling the demand, both in quality and quantity. The lesson learned from Jakarta Metropolitan Area’s context illustrates the needto focus on a series of substantial actions as the future innovations. These suggested future innovations are believed to be beneficialfor application in the JMA area, and also other developing cities.
