Perintis shipping is an Indonesian government program that is a domestic subsidized shipping that connects islands in Indonesia to increase the connectivity, especially for underdeveloped, remote, and border areas, or called 3TP. As Perintis shipping services have grown, with more routes and voyages, subsidies have also increased. The aim of this paper is to explore possible solutions for reducing subsidies by analyzing routes that intersect with commercial shipping. The objective is to determine the optimal route by rerouting the current Perintis route and utilizing the commercial route. This involves analyzing various factors such as operational efficiency, technical and financial considerations to identify the most feasible routes. This research focuses on the Perintis shipping route in Kupang, East Nusa Tenggara. There are five Perintis shipping routes, but only three of them intersect with commercial shipping routes. There are four potential routes available, consisting of three options for R-23 and one option for R-24. Based on the analysis, it has been determined that the most feasible option is the first option of R-24. The chosen routes have witnessed a reduction in subsidies, with a total amount of IDR 30.56 million and commercial shipping has achieved a profit increase of IDR 809.70 million.
