In this study the accessibility calculation was based on regional connectivity and analyzed the effect of distance and road conditions in the accessibility calculation. The Roadroid tool was used in identifying the condition of the road network in PALI Regency. The results showed that the length and condition of the road significantly affect the ranking of regional accessibility when compared to the ranking of accessibility which is calculated only based on connectivity between regions.
