This study aims to carry out various levels of congestion in Yogyakarta using the System Dynamics methodological approach. The research results on the congestion level in Yogyakarta reached the maximum value in 2033, based on research with the policy of reducing the number of motorcycles and passenger cars to reduce congestion levels until 2050. Policy Studies are significant to develop a dynamic simulation model to understand the interaction between various factors in the complex system, scenario policies are expected to reduce congestion in the future and are expected to provide better policy outcomes
