AT SRIWIJAYA UNIVERSITY - INDERALAYA

PREFACE

1. Background of Study

Indonesia is one of developing countries that very concerned on education. Previous years ago, exactly in 1990’s Indonesia is the most popular place for taking education. Many students from Southeast Asia come to Indonesia for studying. Especially student from, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, they choose Indonesia because at that decade, Indonesia had good facilities, including qualified lecture, convenience campus, and accessible transportation.

Make student wet when arrived to campus. Very different with lecture and employee bus, which most of the bus is brand new and very comfortable because has Air Conditioner on it.

We conclude the factors that influence student to use their own vehicle are:

 Convenience

 Parents Interfere

 Campus Schedule
