Abstract

There are several routes of Ipoh-UTP trip for UTP staffs commuting to work. This research considers two major groups of staffs which are the academician, administration and support staffs. However, they tend to choose the routes that suit their personal concern very well. Alternatives of the routes and elements such as distance, travelling time, fuel consumption, ease of driving and facilities located along the road are the factors affect the decision making. During decision making process, a set of alternatives representing the possible choices is evaluated. The objectives to be achieved drive the screening of possible alternatives and determine their overall evaluation. The criteria are the yardstick for the objectives and specify the degree to which each alternative matches the objectives. By using Multiple Criteria Decision Making Method (MCDM) specifically under Multi Criteria Analysis (MCA), the attributes performance and preference of decision makers are combined to establish the overall merits of each option and highlight the best solution. The most popular routes identified were through the Ipoh-Jalan Lahat-UTP, Ipoh-Falim-UTP, Ipoh-Simpang Pulai-UTP and Ipoh-Bandar Botani-UTP. The road safety element of the most preferred route will be investigated by analyzing the accident trend along the route. The outcome of the project would be a rank of routes from the most preferred to least preferred one for UTP staff commuting to work and accident mitigation actions proposal to the local authority to improve the safety of the most preferred route.
