In Rivers State, about three-quarter of its land is covered by water and approximately 70% of all travel between its capital, Port Harcourt and access to most of her Loca l Government Areas is via rivers. Unfortunately, the state and its capital in particular lacks Boat Terminal infrastructure. Apart from this fact and the actual trip was undertaken, other diverse and complex requirements of travellers must be adequate, considered and tackled. The imp importance of public transit system has been growing increasingly in order to achieve smooth traffic in urban areas of which one of the most used transit systems is the water transit system in the Delta region of Nigeria. Sometimes, different aspects of functions conflict in the sequence of flow or circulation pattern in the ticketing points and checking points of the terminal which is as a result of imp roper placing of functional spaces. In this study, the author carried out a detailed study on effective circulation in Boat Terminals to achieve an effective and efficient boat terminal that will befit the status of Rivers State the oil-rich state of Nigeria and other Ni ger Delta region. Th e research method used in this thesis report was case studies and descriptive survey research. This involved field trips by the researcher, to gather information through the assessment of some existing local and foreign boat terminals. Consequently, the result of the research, was that circulation patterns and access points were established in the design with the intent of minimizing impacts on the surrounding facility. And this was achieved by providing clear, safe vehicular movement; dir entire ng traffic into the terminal area and to appropriate parking locations; accommodating a reasonable number of parking lots at or near destinations; and allowing convenient access for emergency services, and goods delivery. Also, the provisions of a standard requirement of horizontal and vertical circulation components were introduced in the design.
