The result of the research proved that there are changes in the society movement patterns at the decline the network density indicated by the decline of the number of people’s destination and by the decrease in the network density path, and also the decrease in the movement quantity among society zones which proves the theory of movement decline from the suburbs area to urban area. The application of ICT in several service sectors has enabled people to access the service at anytime and anywhere easily. However, the application of ICT in Yogyakarta has limited human resources in operating the service, and this make the number of society movement can not be completely substituted by the application of ICT.
