|Title||Evaluation of Bus System as A Transportation Mode in Gaza Strip Using (GIS)|
|Title in Arabic||تقييم النقل بالحافلات في قطاع غزة باستخدام نظم المعلومات الجغرافية|
The Gaza Strip suffers from a continuous increase in taxi numbers. The majority of Gaza Strip citizens use taxi in their movement. Relying completely on taxi, neglecting the availability of bus as a transport mean, causes more traffic congestions and bad environmental effects. This study discusses the conditions of bus service in Gaza Strip trough testing certain hypotheses assuming that public is not satisfied with bus system inGaza. This testing is proceeded using questionnaire. The study also includes the evaluation of ten bus stops inGazacity as a case study. This evaluative case study measures the suitability of the ten points as bus stops, with respect to certain criteria like accessibility, coverage, lighting and the effect on traffic system. Geographic information software (ArcGIS) is used in evaluating the ten bus stops with respect to coverage. The research also includes a design case study for the bus system in the university zone inGazacity, through introducing a simple design for the exact location of bus stop and its bus frequency, depending on passengers count. The research indicates that there is a general dissatisfaction with bus system in Gaza Strip, with respect to buses in service, drivers and bus stops. The study also gives a design for a bus stop and its frequency in university zone inGazacity. Finally, the researcher recommends that more interest is given to bus system, through actual procedures such as insuring the suitability of bus for transferring passengers before updating bus license, decreasing taxes of importing new buses, and holding awareness raising sessions for bus drivers. The researcher also recommends establishing a bus system in the university zone depending on the design given in this research, and making a study about the need of bus stops in Gaza Strip, including the number and locations of bus stops, depending on demand.
