dc.description.abstractENGLISH ABSTRACT: The City of Cape Town (CoCT) is characterised by sprawling areas and suburbs that are represented by an overall lack of accessibility coupled with low mobility levels. The majority of the urban poor live in the urban periphery, approximately 30 kilometres away from the CBD where as much as 40% of monthly incomes are spent on transport to and from place of work. Therefore the CoCT has recently overhauled its approach for development, adopting a new Transit Oriented Development (TOD) approach in order to deal with these mounting issues. This research identifies how the CoCT aims to use the MyCiTi BRT as a catalyst in the implementation of TOD around the built environment. TOD has the potential to shape, change and drastically impact how future development will occur within Cape Town’s built environment. Living near public transit saves both time and money and planning around TOD can enhance social inclusiveness by increasing accessibility to jobs, particularly for the urban poor.en_ZA
