Dhaka is very small city, with ever growing population and shortage of space. Proper planning of transport is a big problem in Bangladesh. So proper urban planning of transport along with efficient use of space is very necessary in Bangladesh. The project proposal by Bangladesh Road Transport Corporation (BRTC) is such a step towards urban & transport planning which would help facilitate commuter service, international travel by bus, along with efficient use of land. BRTC (Bangladesh Road Transport Corporation) International bus terminal currently is very much under facilitated & unorganized, with no proper traffic management. More over there is no proper passenger facility, or proper arrival and departure bays & the terminal does not portray a good image of Bangladesh to international passenger. The site is opposite Kamlapur rail station, so both together it creates additional problem in traffic flow of the area. The proposal of the project is to design the international bus terminal at Motijheel with proper passenger facility, a bus service facility, which is able to handle more buses per hour and can accommodate more bus parking, along with a commercial building. In the proposal number of destinations is going increased to 9 inter-district routes and 5 international routes from 5 and 3 respectively. So the aim of this project is to design a bus terminal structure which caters to both inter-district and international buses and passenger and solve traffic flow problem of that area. This dissertation will describe the proposal of the terminal with elaboration of the background and proposed design consideration.
