AN INTEGRATED MASS TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM FOR KUMASI, GHANA

Mass transit in the second largest city in Ghana is provided by the private sector (taxis and jitneys) and the public sector (buses and commuter trains). The private sector is characterized by many one or two vehicle operators; The Omnibus Services Authority operates the buses and the Ghana Railway Corp. operates the trains. A major problem is that the large number of operators prefer to operate only routes with high ridership potential. It is proposed that the modes be integrated, with terminals established to serve as transfer points. A ring-road service is proposed to connect the outer ends of the radial trunk-haul routes. A management agency is proposed to optimize the use of available resources.
