The City of Cape Town (CCT), through turnkey developer Calgro M3 Developments, appointed Bigen Africa to create a public transport facility with the emphasis on simplicity, sustainability and efficient operation for the underprivileged community of Wallacedene. It was the CCT's objective to provide social and economic up-liftment to the community through this R25 million facility. In addition, the new Scottsdene Housing Development Project increased the area's need for a reliable public transport facility. The facility is a place for people and should provide a service which would restore a sense of dignity in the community and with commuters, whilst stimulating social and economic development, following the principle that economic opportunities always follow places where transport nodes cross. The facility should furthermore be practical in its operation and design, allowing for safe and easy access, reducing the need (and cost) for intensive maintenance.
