Our goal was to develop a routing design and on-site feasibility analysis for the proposed bus rapid transit system within Cape Town's central business district, utilising the concept of decentralised boarding and disembarking. This project was initiated due to deficiencies in the current public transport system with regard to security, speed, and comfort. With our research into these systems, in addition to assessing the needs of current passengers through surveying, we developed a routing plan for the central business district, designed and proposed station concepts, and conducted an on-site feasibility analysis. These results contribute to the overall remodel of Cape Town's public transportation in an attempt to move past the lingering effects of apartheid.
