Towards effective urban transportation system in Lagos, Nigeria: Commuters’ opinions and experiences


  • Ibitayo, Olurominiyi O.


The economic and financial sustainability of cities is inextricably linked with the viability of the city’s transportation system. The viability of the system can be enhanced through an understanding of commuters’ opinions and experiences. Using Lagos, Nigeria, as a case study, the purpose of this study therefore is to investigate commuters’ opinions and experiences about several elements of the city’s transportation system.
