It is critical to study the travel behaviour of residents as it provides an understanding on what people do over space and how people use transportation within that space. The objective of this study is to identify the factors that determine residential location preferences towards future neighborhood selection. Current literature focuses on preferences in relation to physical and demographic aspects, such as ownership, income, land use, facilities as well as transportation services. However, this study suggests safety and cultural aspects which are likely to be significant in many contexts. In order to further investigate these suggestions, a case study has been carried out based on Iskandar Malaysia’s development region. A Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) is applied to 384 household heads on their housing selection preferences. The result shows that there are significant relationships between residential location preferences and travel behaviour.
