Bus termini design in Nairobi CBD

background

 

Travel is an integral part of contemporary life, a generator of urban activity. As urban portals, it is important for transport facilities to be accessible, efficiently planned. The current public transport system in Kenya has huge potential for growth, providing an opportunity to meet the needs of an ever growing society, seeking improved, safe and reliable mode of transport.
Due to the lack of infrastructure and state provisions, the matatu industry emerged as the preferred mode of transport for the majority population, as it offered the most economical alternative. The industry today represents the most accessible mode of transport. There is a general realization that public transport has a significant role to play in enhancing the urban mobility, reducing road congestion, decreasing the impact of vehicles on the environment and better serving the economy.
It is clear that infrastructure is required in the public transport industry. The author `aims at looking at the design of a bus terminus facility which seeks to appeal to a wider socio-economic group, and in turn create a more sustainable system as a whole. For any significant change to occur, more than just architecture is required, as architecture in isolation, cannot address all the issues.
