Road lighting is an important road-furniture to improve road user's visibility during dark condition. The aim of this study is to evaluate and then recommend the application of road lighting standard towards sustainable transportation. Case study is carried out on a road with 2.3 km length and 51 light poles in a large city Bandung in Indonesia. Indonesia National Standard (SNI-7391:2008) and international standard CIE (Commission International de I’Echairage) are used to evaluate the road lighting. Lux meter, laser distance meter, and GPS application used to measure the field data. Result study indicated there are good average-luminance (cd/m2), good overall light-uniformity (U0), poor longitudinal light-uniformity (U1), and fair threshold-increment value (TI) of the road lighting. Recommended solution toward sustainable transportation are implementation of uniform distance and height of light poles, uniform kind of LED, periodic maintenance of light function and using solar cell panel as an electric energy source.
