Abstract: The road level of service (LOS) is the most common measure of effectiveness to evaluate the measure of effectiveness (MOE) on the performance of existing traffic facilities. From a qualitative point of view, LOS is proven and widely accepted to measure road effectiveness. However, the assessment of road infrastructure performance based on LOS depends on the qualitative parameters of density and volume. Adding probabilities of continuous traffic or detailing them proves to be more efficient for traffic monitoring. Monitoring of road capacity and service level (LOS) is the key to achieving sustainable performance. In Indonesia the degree of saturation (DS) is defined as the ratio of road flow to capacity, which is used as the main factor in determining the level of road service. While in India there are many methods such as Cluster Analysis, Percentage Speed Reduction, Fuzzy Set Theory to define the level of road service, but the V/C ratio and average speed methods are the best methods in urban and rural areas. This study will identify differences in the calculation of the level of service carried out in Indonesia and in India through a comparative study of the calculation of the level of service in previous studies. The road level of service in the two countries has the same calculation formula, namely volume per capacity ratio, but differs in each sub-variable on the variable road capacity and traffic volume. Indonesia has a methodology to calculate road service levels by conducting road capacity analysis, traffic flow and composition analysis, degree of saturation analysis and land use modeling analysis. India has a methodology to calculate road service levels by performing Passenger Car Unit (PCU) analysis, Stream Equivalency Factor (Se) analysis, road capacity analysis, adjustment factor analysis, and road service level analysis.
