Abstract: 
Two of the main reasons of traffic congestion in Lebanon are the high number of private vehicles and the absence of a decent public transportation system. While the problem regarding the unavailability of the public transportation system can be related to the government, the high number of private cars can be explained and tackled from different angles. This study aims to present a full bus system analysis and design as a solution for various problems regarding the transportation sector. 1000 person completed a survey asking about their evaluation of the existing public transport and their willingness to use a decent public transport system. Results showed that 73% of the samples are willing to use public transportation if proven to be up to standards. That means a reduction of 525 cars/ hour after installing 7 buses on the Kousba - Chekka road. This amount of cars replaced by buses also implied a decrease of noise pollution by 2 dB, and a significant decrease of accidents. It is concluded that the existing bus system is not satisfactory. A new reliable bus system should be installed as a major solution.
