Abstract

This study reviews the Public Transportation (PT) Systems and the opportunities and requirements applied in Libya. Beginning with the definition of public transport systems and their functions and areas of applied and advanced systems for public transport and advanced systems for traffic management, systems and operations of transport vehicles and advanced systems to control private vehicle and safety, with a discussion of the importance of each of them, this paper discusses the requirements of the application of Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) systems in mass with focus placed on the importance of developing an outline plan for the public transport systems. The concept master plan and the options available in Tripoli shall be discussed to develop its map of structural public transportation systems and recommend consideration of the possible adoption of a map structure developed in the advanced countries and some developing countries in this area, with their adaptations depending on the circumstances of Tripoli. It also concludes with the need to establish a permanent institution representing the parties involved, including the public sectors, academia; and vested in the institutions responsible for managing, directing, and the preparation of a strategic plan for public transport systems, including the development of the master plan for those systems. The study recommends starting with pilot projects carefully selected by an explanatory expansion in the application.
