Abstract: This study aimed to explore walking as a transportation mode compared with other modes of election for residents around Kiaracondong railway station, Bandung with comparative and descriptive analysis. Initially, the use of modes that will be compared to walking is walking plus train, walking plus angkot, walking plus ojek/others and car/motorcycle. But the train was not a daily trip for people around the station so it is not analyzed further. Walking as transport mode explored by trip purposes (school, shopping, work), gender (male, female) and the availability of car/motorcycle. Walking into that has been chosen, except for the purpose of working. We then discuss aspects of parental perception of walkability are grouped into five, namely accessibility, comfort, safety, pleasure ability and security. From the perception of walkability, only feasibility for walking to distance associated with walking which is one factor accessibility. While the gender and availability of car/motorcycle has nothing to do with the election of walking as mode of transport.
