The highest fatality involved motorcycle accident in Malaysia which encompasses to 60% from the overall numbers. Various initiatives were taken to decrease the numbers to 50% by the year 2020. The initiatives include the road engineering programme — the provision of Exclusive Motorcycle Lane (EMCL) and Non-Exclusive Motorcycle Lane (NEMCL). These programmes have started in the early seventies and were claimed as the first type of facilities introduced in the world. The utilisation issues can be part of the challenges in providing these facilities besides motorists’ satisfaction and the availability of data that can support further research involving motorcyclists, especially at motorcycle lane facilities. Therefore the aim of this study is to develop a systematic database for motorcycle facility by providing information such as public utilisation, satisfaction and Level of Safety (LOS) on the existing motorcycle facilities provided in Malaysia. To achieve the aim, the following objectives are designed a) To identify the rate of MCL facilities utilisation and misuse b) To determine the motorcycle speed apply at motorcycle lanes and main carriageway c) To assess the current road engineering and environmental safety concern using MeTRA d) To determine motorcyclist satisfaction index for EMCL & NEMCL and e) To identify the determinants of influencing motorcyclist choice in using EMCL & NEMCL. Engineering studies were conducted, and a questionnaire related to satisfaction was distributed via face-to-face interview and an online survey. Motorist Satisfaction Index (MSI) was rated using a Likert scale for seven (7) attributes including the provision of signage, lighting, guardrail, paved lane, accessibility, security and cleanliness. The same attributes were also assessed during Road Safety Assessment. The findings were provided at the end of this report that will be very useful to road authorities in Malaysia and lesson learned to other countries.
