Human mobility has the potential to act as a vector for the spread of infectious agents. Efforts to prevent COVID-19 in the transportation sector must be carried out correctly. This research aims to find out the description of COVID-19 prevention behavior on public transportation. This is descriptive research with a qualitative approach. The study was conducted in Jabodetabek. The variable in this study was the prevention of COVID-19 on public transportation. This study’s informants are public transportation users selected by purposive sampling. Data were collected by conducting in-depth interviews, analyzed using the Content Analysis method, and presented in a narrative for interpretation. Atlas. ti was used to transcribe the results of in-depth interviews with informants. The findings indicate that not all modes of public transportation have the optimal level of COVID-19 prevention. Prevention of COVID-19 that is common on some public conveyance includes wearing a mask, vaccination status check, checking body temperature, hand washing facilities or hand sanitizers, and physical distancing rules. There are rules for the commuter line: do not talk while on the commuter line. Airplanes are required to have a negative PCR test. Masks and the social distancing scheme are carried out in Jaklingko and Busway (Transjakarta).COVID-19 prevention in microlets is still not optimal because keeping a distance is difficult because the reduction in passengers will affect the drivers’ income. It is hoped that the public will comply with the behavior of preventing COVID-19 in public transportation, and the government and related agencies will provide facilities and carry out monitoring and evaluation of the prevention of COVID-19 in public transportation.
