Abstract: Mass transportation refers to the machines which are specifically created to carry a certain number of people from one area to another. In highly progressive and populated places such as in Metro Manila Philippines, it becomes conventional among people who commute every day on their way to work, school, home and etc., for instance, in the Philippines, there are Metro Rail Transit (MRT) and Light Rail Transit (LRT) found in Metro Manila. As the number of mobile vehicles increase, problems slowly appeared that soon affected the citizens especially the commuters. Thus, it also affect the environment. The situation is also gradually appearing in Davao City, for the city itself has been having a positive progress economically. And to ease the negative effect of a sudden increase in a quantity of the mass transportation in the City, the researchers have conducted a study that was mainly focused on making an alternative mass transport system for Davao City using the FOSS Geo-Spatial Technique. This study was conducted in the city of Davao, in order to make another route with regards to the existing Korean LRT route to ease the traffic congestion on the proposed stations of the proposed Korean LRT. The study found out that the Population of Davao City is gradually increasing per year and the implementation of Light Rail Transit is necessary to provide solution to the uprising dilemma. The commercial areas in Davao City are located in areas where the population is high and the people s flow is steady and the road network is accessible. The Road Network in Davao City is accessible to have an alternative route for Mass Transit. The Traffic Congestion is Davao City are located in the Primary Roads, Secondary roads, and National Highways and also pinpointed in commercial zones with high-density residential zones. The alternative Mass Transport System in Davao City are the combination of 2024 projected population, Traffic Congestions and the Commercial Areas in Davao City.
