Many urban public transportation facilities have not yet considered the needs of disabilities. There are at least 10% of disabilities in developing countries. The lack of fulfillment in public facilities for disabilities will certainly prevent them from making full social life participation. As one of the most extensive urban public transportation facilities in Jakarta, Gambir Station should be able to provide facilities that can be used by everyone without exception. Nevertheless, based on published research, it is known that there are still some facilities at Gambir Station that have not been following the needs of disabilities; one of them is toilet facilities. There needs to be a re-layout and improvement of facilities in the toilets at Gambir Station to become accessible for people with disabilities. The research method used is qualitative phenomenology. Primary data collection was carried out by participated-observation, interviews with Gambir Station management, wheelchair users, conditioned respondents, and facility trials. The data is analyzed using the directed content analysis approach; later, the data will be used to reference toilet layout recommendations that follow the needs of people with disabilities. This recommendation’s results are supposed to be applied at Gambir Station and become a reference for other stations in Indonesia.
