Abstract
This study aims to describe the behaviour of children with intellectual disability when using public transportation by busway. This type of study is descriptive research. The subjects of this study were children with intellectual disability in SMALB XI in Yogyakarta. The techniques used in this study include observation, interviews, and documentation. Data analysis used in this study was descriptive statistics. The collected data was reduced, then the data was displayed, and finally the conclusions were drawn up. The results of this study show that the behaviours of children with intellectual disability when using public transportation by busway still need improvement. This is indicated by the behaviour of children with intellectual disability who have not been able to queue when buying tickets, waiting for a bus, entering the bus in order, and asking questions to the officers. Based on the results of the study, the expectation is that school can provide educational services related to the use of public transportation that is appropriate to the condition of children with intellectual disability and improve learning strategies so that they can understand better in using public transportation. In addition, the government also needs to improve accessibility so that children with intellectual disability can easily use public transportation.
