Abstract

Just like the chicken and egg situation, the relationship between land use and transportation and its influences on each other is challenging to justify, especially in developing countries. One of the main reasons was because developing countries strive hard in economy improvement, thus land use and the future of transportation planning becomes unclear. The enthusiasm to increase economy growth and to move forward to become a highly developed country affecting developing countries to be biased over the importance of ensuring proper land use and transportation planning. However, achievement in economy is not a golden ticket to ensure the success of land use and transportation planning in developing countries. Although this theory seems generic, the difficulty to solving land use and transportation problems is not clear as there are diverse characteristics of a developing country within itself. In this research, we found that the economy factor is not the only factor in determining the success of land use and transportation planning but there are more factors involved. This can be caused by diverse reasons such as the independence period. The independence period of a developing country contribute to the diverse historical background of a developing country and it also has determined factors of achievement in land use and transportation planning. Based on the analysis result, we found that the independence period provides differences in the relations between factors in developing country land use and transportation planning. Keywords: land use transport integration, urban planning, developing countries.
