Abstract: Traffic congestion has been one of the major issues faced by most urbanization around the world. Traffic congestion can be define as the vehicles that travels at a certain place with slower speed. This is because there are many vehicles using that road at the same time.

Furthermore, in this research study the researcher has gave the recommendation to reducing traffic congestion at Jalan Bertingkat Skudai, Johor Bahru. Those are implement Vehicle Quota System (VQS), reduced parking spaces strategy, implement Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) system, Tidal-Flow operation and provide bike-sharing system at this area.
