Growing business opportunities in the city of Asunción, Paraguay, attract thousands of commuters daily into the city. The city’s public transportation infrastructure cannot meet the demand of the users to have a proper flow of passengers into and out of Asunción, which has increased congestion. This project presents a preliminary design for an underground public transportation system that runs for 21 kilometers, 20 meters below the street level, which will potentially reduce the commuting time by 70%. Axiomatic Design Decomposition is used to identify the fundamental Functional Requirements and Design Parameters for the design. An extensive cost benefit analysis assesses the potential benefits of the proposed solution and includes the potential reduction in travel time to the public.
