Kajang Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) station is the last station for Sungai Buloh-Kajang line (SBK line). Assessing the current catchment area for its feeder bus route is important in ensuring the sustainability of feeder bus operation thus fulfilling its function to connect passenger with the MRT rail service. The objective of this study is to assess the composition of land use activities along the four routes of MRT feeder bus. In this study, the catchment area for all four routes of MRT feeder bus was assessed through on-site evaluation and applied Geographical Information System (GIS). The land use activities composition was calculated by using GIS tools. The catchment area used in this study was 400m buffer, considering the acceptable walking distance of passengers’ willingness to travel to the bus stops, and the transit-oriented concept consideration. The key findings of this study were the percentage of land use composition and land use activities distribution that can contribute to the volume of passenger ingress at each bus stops location, and determines the issues generated from the overlapping feeder bus route. This study recommends a triangulation method in future research to identify the factors involved during route selection for a better feeder bus route optimisation.
