Open access


This paper is trying to examine the effect of social media in the use of personal transport for leisure purposes. Youngster are frequently identified as being adventurous and highly mobile, even few researcher modes of transportation choices play in important role in enhancing and fulfilling their desired experiences. In this paper, we would like to know the role of social media in enhancing the personal transport desire in south-east Kalimantan. Social media role is measured by borrowing the theory of technology acceptance model by using two variables namely perceived ease of use and perceived usefulness. A quantitative method was used to measure the variable by using questionnaire given to 230 respondents given to university student near south-east Kalimantan. The gathered data is analyzed by using generalized structured component analysis. The finding in this research indicates that both perceived ease of use and perceived usefulness of social media could affect individual intention to use personal transport. However, the larger effect has reflected by perceived usefulness. This means that social media has been recognized as a good reference to stimulate leisure by using personal transport.
