Abstract

This paper examines the factors that make people used the street in Kuala Lumpur city centre. The study employed a mix-methodology method. The results suggest that the needs of users on the street depend on various factors, such as attractions; activities and reasons for using the streets; proximity, lack of congestion; and familiarity and length of engagement with the place public space, greenery, public amenities, maintenance and freedom of action. The findings show that, in general, the factors that make people use the street are mostly similar with previous theories. However, the attributes that contribute to the factors vary for each context.
