Transportologi is a community established to develop discourses on transport knowledge in Indonesia and the world. It is not only from the engineering side, but also its relation with other sectors, such as the economy, social, and politics. As we work and advocate transport, we come to an understanding that transport cannot be separated from the other sectors. They are relating to each other and influencing each other. Transport cannot stand alone as a technical solution to solve mobility problems.
Transportologi established in March 2017 by two transport planners who struggling to encourage the city to implement sustainable transport. Transportologi has main activity in Solo, Indonesia, a city that also becomes the base of Transportologi.
Transportologi has the main mission to develop and nourish transport knowledge, especially in sustainable transport theoretically and practically in Indonesia by research, discussion, and advocating it in transport policy. Transportologi believes that the efforts to bring sustainable transport into reality is one of the ways to warrant the sustainability of our earth and its people in the future. To do this, our steps include encouraging a fair, inclusive, transparent, and accountable transport system.
Our community names, Transportologi, derive from two words “transport” and “logos” that has meaning knowledge about transport. Transport entomologically from Old French with meaning convey from one place to another. And logos that is knowledge. By bearing this name with intention, Transportologi believes that transport knowledge and practice can thrive rapidly if there are deep and intense discourses and easy access for everyone.
