Kampala, the capital city of Uganda is a highly populated and dense area, and the construction of roads to reach all areas within the city is economically and socially unfeasible. While the population in Kampala City is increasing daily, the problem with mobility of people from areas of residence to areas of business and work has become a burden to the Government and Authorities. The construction of new roads and modifications to existing ones, especially in congested areas, is quite expensive, and with traffic congestion and accidents happening mostly to passengers in taxis and motorcycles remaining daily challenges Therefore, this research about the usage of cable cars in Kampala city should be the starting point for consideration of alternative transport means in the city and it consists of the identification of areas with more mobility and traffic congestion problems, and analysis of respective topography. The major tasks involved in the feasibility study are data collection and interpretation, demand and capacity assessment, determining implementation cost, economic and financial analysis.
