I’m Coming Home: By Private Transportation – Indonesian “Mudik 2016″ Eid Homecoming Survey Report Part 2

The Ramadhan is nearly coming to an end, which means that the Eid Al-Fitr is about to come. In Indonesia, there is a tradition that cannot be disregarded, which is called “mudik”, where people depart for their homecoming travel. Therefore, recently Jakpat has conducted a survey in order to see the preferences of Indonesian Moslems regarding to the transportation mode for homecoming travel this Eid holiday. This survey involved in total 2011 respondents from across Indonesia, with a relatively balanced male-female composition and various economic backgrounds. For the further notes, Jakpat’s respondents in this survey are Indonesian Moslems smart-phone users, with a range of age from 16 to 50 year-old. The survey report is divided into two parts. In the previous first part, we’ve served the data of respondents who choose public transportation for Eid homecoming travel this year. For this second part, we would explain about respondents who choose to go home for Eid holiday by private transportation, which are 1245 out of 2011 respondents (62%).


First of all, out of those respondents who choose private transportation for their Eid homecoming travel, we would like to see which kind of private transportation that they choose. Apparently, the respondents’ choice is divided into two between car (53%) and motorcycle (47%). In general, men are more likely than women to choose private transportation (57% VS 43%). In particular, men are also more likely than women to choose motorcycle over other kinds of private transportation (69% VS 31%). On the other hand, women are more likely than men to choose car (53% VS 47%).


Next, regarding to the reason why they choose private transportation for the Eid homecoming travel, there are seven reasons that are chosen by our respondents. More than half of them (51%) choose it because they think it’s more practical than using public transportation, while half of them (50%) choose it because they say it’s more relaxed during the travel if they go by private transportation. 33% of those respondents choose private transportation because it means cheaper by the expense than buying ticket for public transportation, while 24% of them choose it because they have to bring a lot of luggage during the travel. There are also 16% of them who choose private transportation because that’s the only transportation mode that could reach their hometown. 14% of them think that it’s less tiring during the travel if they go by private transportation, while the other 14% choose private transportation over public transportation for safety reason.

When asked about the pocket money they prepare for the road, many of them (42%) prepare about IDR 100,000 to IDR 1,000,000, while there are some of them (35%) who prepare about IDR 1,000,000 to IDR 5,000,000 in cash. Moreover, there are 8% of them who prepare about IDR 5,000,000 to IDR 10,000,000 for their Eid homecoming travel, while there are also 2% of them who prepare more than IDR 10,000,000. However, there are also 13% of them who prepare less than IDR 100,000 for their journey.


Furthermore, we found that most of our respondents (83%) will depart for their Eid homecoming travel within a week before Eid. Moreover, there are 10% of them who depart within two weeks before Eid, and also 7% of them who depart within three weeks. When asked about whom they are going home with, most of them (66%) answered that they will go home with family, while there are 16% of them who admit that they will go home with their partner. In addition to that, there are 13% of them who will go home alone, while the other 4% with their friends.

Regarding to things they prepare for the Eid homecoming travel, most of our respondents (67%) say that they prepare the stamina for the long journey. Meanwhile, most of them (65%) also prepare the vehicle they use for the travel, as they plan to travel with private transportation. Henceforth, most of them (61%) also prepare for things and equipments to bring for the journey, such as clothes, medicine, money, etc. Subsequently, less than half of them (48%) prepare some souvenirs or gifts to give for people at their home.


Lastly, since this is the private transportation they will use and it will be a long journey on the road, apparently most of our respondents (70%) plan to stop at the rest area during their Eid homecoming travel. In addition to that, less than half of them (48%) plan to use certain service apps on their smartphone or gadget in order to help them during the travel. At the very last, we give a trivia regarding to whether they will go back from the homecoming to their current domicile by the same transportation mode. Apparently, almost all of them (96%) plan to go back with the same private transportation.
