  • ISSN : 1021-2000



Arup, with ROM (Israel), is undertaking a World Bank funded project (for the Ministry of Works and Transport in Uganda) to develop a detailed design of a pilot Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system in Kampala, the capital city of Uganda. The BRT in Kampala will be operated with articulated buses on exclusive on-street bus lanes. This article outlines an approach in which the design of each system component responds to the operational concepts and design philosophy, recognising that each component has a significant impact on the business case and the financial sustainability of the system.
