Title: Towards an integration of urban transit systems: a case study of Kumasi
Authors: Boapeah, S. N
Issue Date: 5-Jun-2012
Series/Report no.: 1076;
Abstract: Transportation serves as a linkage between the physical separation of human activities in time and space. The excellence of transportation thus consists in accomplishing this and with the least expenditure of time, cost and convenience. Kumasi is Ghana’s second largest city with a population of about 600.000 and an area 15.1 square kilometers. The three main elements of the transportation problem now facing the city are its growing population, growing spatial extent, and dependence on mass transit facilities, which pre-suppose making mass transit a viable service through which the city’s economy can be articulated. Mass transit facilities are, however, inadequate and unless the city acts quickly to remedy the results of past neglect and to provide for the further, tomorrow’s transportation problem is bounded to be even more pressing.
Description: A design thesis report submitted to the department of architecture of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Kumasi, in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of master of Philosophy in Developmental Studies.
