Author: عبد المحمود حامد, نضال
Abstract: Khartoum North Locality, as other localities in Khartoum State, has experienced perpetual population increase which needs a multiplicity of services including transport. The study focused on the public transport sector in Khartoum North Locality where this sector has witnessed increases in types and numbers, and this has initiated a number of changes in the area. The study aimed at the identification of the transport means used most by the people, the purposes of these daily movements, the major problems encountered, the major socio-economic and environmental impacts of these means of transport and the role of the State regarding this sector. Some recommendations are provided to enhance the role of this sector. In the end the hypotheses were tested. A number of approaches were used in the study including the historical, the descriptive, the regional and the quantitative. Data were collected from secondary sources (books, journals and reports) and primary sources by observation, interview and questionnaire. The findings of the study include that the public transport sector has a positive economic role and generates revenue for the Locality and families, and provides employment opportunities in the gas stations and repairing workshops. Furthermore, the sector has an important role in the promotion of social relations. But on the other hand, the sector has a negative environmental impact through pollution and noise. A number of recommendations have been suggested by the researcher including the encouragement of the people to use public transport, periodic inspection and repair of vehicles, maintenance of roads, and provision of shade and seats in bus stations.
