Mubashir, Try talking to your local public transport authority. And you could try researching the modern long-distance coach terminals in Turkey, such as those in Ankara and Istanbul.

Start by looking at other bus terminals. What about these bus terminals work? Why do they not work? Why did you pick this subject?

What problem are you trying to solve with your thesis exploration?

thanks shiraz ,actually there is no terminal yet but big bus stands there which are scattered in whole city. which causes traffic jams, pollution,accidents etc

i am trying to consolidate these bus stands into designed bus terminal which accomodate all buses.

Mubashir, It sounds as though you need to map out the routes of all of these buses, because most probably there quite a few rival buses competing with each other.

From what I saw in Turkey all of the rural towns have at least one main long distance bus (coach) station on a main route through the town and the cities have several purpose-build bus stations around the edges of the city.

In fact, the long distance bus stations are very similar to airports and the newest ones are designed in several different layers with the bus garage on the lowest level.

Mubashir, Both Istanbul and Ankara have long-distance bus (coach) terminals, but the one in Ankara is newer.
