The city government of Surabaya has offered free school tuition to help needy students. However, free tuition is not enough for some because school costs, like transportation, are not covered with the tuition fee. This project designs free school bus models to help needy students with transportation costs. The model proposed in this research is focusing to find the best routes which cover the area with the most number of potential passengers, the needy student. The needy density in a sub-sub-district area is the primary data. This needy population data will accompany street map, school map, and bus depot in the VRP process. The proposed routes from VRP process then graded in its time consumed, covered area, sharing area, and road balance. Next, the chosen route used in an accessibility analyst in order to find its affect in existing transportation system. The result indicates that the process proposed in this project can be used to find the best route and can support the government in making a decision in the limitation they have.
