The city public transport company commissioned a feasibility study to research the possibility of introducing either a tram or a rapid-transit bus service on an existing major bus route. (A rapid transit bus service has high capacity buses, fewer bus-stops and no on-board ticket sales). The tram proposals were initially dropped, but two solutions for rapid-transit bus services were examined in detail. The first proposed that a central platform be used with buses driving against the traffic flow. The second proposed that a central bus lane be created similar to a tram system. The impact on parking, street trees and traffic circulation was examined.
