Market activities in a city center can cause a significant traffic disorder. One of the markets existed in Medan is the traditional market of Padang Bulan located at Jl. Jamin Ginting. According to Structure Plan of Medan,the location of the market is within the commercial sector of Medan city. It is served by artery routes with significantly congested traffic especially at peak periods. The study carried out shows that, the market activities have lead to a serious traffic congestion which partly caused the traders and vendors carried out their bossiness activities along the shoulder of the road and on-street parking along the first lane. Where as the second lane was used by public buses for loading and unloading their passengers. Thus, there was only one path left functioning. As an initial plan of anticipating the ploblem, the trip attraction was calculated. For this purpose, the samples were taken from 450 respondents representing the regular visitors of the market and classifying them by their transportation mode, 150 respondents for the public transportation mode and another 150 respondents for private transportation mode. A regression method using a stepwise approach was adopted in the analysis. The result shows that, the modes of transportation used by the visitors of the market were as follows; for public transportation mode, the amount of traffic would be reduced by a factor of 0.89 when there is an increase of one kilometer in distance from home to the Padang Bulan market. For motorcycle transportation mode, the amount of traffic would reduce by 0.88 when there is an increase of one kilometer in distance from home to the market. This means that, the longer of distance from home to the market; the lower the intensity of traffic to the market Padang Bulan. Where as for private vehicles, the amount of traffic would be reduced by 0,74 when there would be an increased of one kilometer in distance from home to the market. This means that, the longer the distance from home to the market; the lower the intensity of the traffic into the Padang Bulan market.
