As Nigeria works towards the provision of an efficient multimodal transport system with sufficient facilities for persons with disability, we need the knowledge and resources to maintain the existing infrastructure and construct world class transport systems,” adds Bridget.

Overview. The mobility of passengers and freight is fundamental to economic and social activities such as commuting, manufacturing, distributing goods, or supplying energy.

Each movement has a purpose, an origin, a potential set of intermediate locations, and a destination. Mobility is supported and driven by transport systems which are composed of infrastructures, modes, and terminals.

Railways in Nigeria are operated by the Nigerian Railway a's railway system has 3, kilometers of track, most of which is Cape country has two major rail lines: a western line that connects Lagos to Nguru, and an eastern line that connects Port Harcourt to Lagos–Kano Standard Gauge Railway is being built in segments to replace the western Cape.

Transport in Niger is composed of the transportation systems and methods used in this landlocked nation, with cities separated by huge uninhabited deserts, mountain ranges, and other natural features.

A poor nation, Niger's transport system was little developed during the colonial period (–), relying upon animal transport, human transport, and limited river transport in the far south.

Maritime transport is the linchpin of the global economy, acting as the physical support for its flows of freight.

INTRODUCTION In the past few decades, African cities have been experiencing huge population increases.

This is mainly due to galloping urbanization and rural exodus. It is estimated that by some 55% of the African population will be living in urban areas (African Association of Public Transport, ).
