Abstract: Traffic congestion in Jakarta often occurs because of the imbalance between the mobilisation of citizens and the extent of using public transportation. To overcome this problem, the Indonesian Government issued a strategic plan for bus rapid transit (BRT) transportation to improve the transportation services quality. An essential component of BRT transportation is its stations; an initiative to improve BRT service quality involves improving the station services. To fulfil passenger needs and improve the BRT station services, this research recommended a service blueprint design based on the service quality, theory of inventive problem-solving (TRIZ), and quality function deployment (QFD) methods which obtained 13 recommendation solutions from 18 priority attributes along with 29 inventive principles to be mapped into the service blueprint.
Keywords: service design; integrated service systems; public transportation services; bus rapid transit station; service innovation; service blueprint; service quality; TRIZ; inventive principles; QFD; quality function deployment.
