Kpalap, Sylvester Bebari Silva | Bright Ajoku "Spatial Analysis of Road Transit Firms in Port Harcourt Metropolis, Nigeria" Published in International Journal of Trend in Scientific Research and Development (ijtsrd), ISSN: 2456-6470, Volume-6 | Issue-1, December 2021, pp.1624-1631, URL: https://www.ijtsrd.com/papers/ijtsrd49113.pdf

This study examined the spread of public and private road transit terminals with the rapid growth in economic activities in Port Harcourt Metropolis, without corresponding planning and provision of transport infrastructure that resulted in inadequacy in the transportation network. To satisfy a large number of travellers in Port Harcourt metropolis, call for development of Geographic Information System (GIS) based road network map that could be used to analyze easy means of accessing public transit boarding points. Data on precise locations of vibrant public transit terminals were gathered through the application of Global Positioning System Receiver standardized to Geographic Coordinate System, besides the International Terrestrial Reference System. The coordinate’s insertion on the map shows that the vibrant road transit firms operating in Port Harcourt Metropolis, are located mostly along both sides of Port Harcourt-Aba Road, Olusegun Obasanjo Road, Ikwerre Road and East-West road. Thus, make it easier to travel from one terminal to another in search of a better, convenient, alternative or substitute transit road system if experience disappointment from one transport service. Hence, recommend that geographic location information of terminals within the metropolis, be made available to the public for easy access to transport facilities.
