This paper titled Policy institutional approach to transport failure in Nigeria, Encapsulating the fundamental issue and challenges that initiated transport system failure in Nigeria, despite transport sectors having immense potentials to contribute to the growth and development of the national economy. This paper examines the challenges and failure of all forms of transport system in Nigeria with a view to digress from aged long theoretical and conceptual framework to a more practical approach, in order to reduce the existing transport problem. This has been done by looking at the institutional framework and policies from post independent till date. The author researched on the paper with dependence on primary data, secondary data, textbooks, reliable internet websites and operational case study since there is a scarcity of professional material in the subject area. At the end of the paper, the presenter proposed a number of recommendations among which is the involvement of trained transport professional intransportpolicies, training, and practice, cou- pled with frequent review and approval of transport policy papers to reflect social, economic and environmental challenges of the country. It is believed that this research will be useful for transport policy formulator, students, researchers and also stakeholders in transport practice.
