The way cities are organized constitutes for increasing demand for motor based travels, road infrastructure needs and vehicle. This encourages energy profligacy, pollution, visible declining service level in spite of increasing transport based investment and needless change to our microclimate. All these threaten city sustainability. This study, relying on a current study of Ilorin, discusses the nature of travel pattern and characteristics within the cities. The methodology of the study entailed the use of questionnaire survey exercise conducted in the city using the stratified systematic sampling techniques. The study affirm close relationship between intra city auto travel and urban land use arrangement as well as travel characteristics which are dominantly work trips, commercial trips, ecclesiastical trips and recreational trips. Recommended policy thrust include, provision of off-street parking facilities in designated areas of our, roads in our cities need regular maintenance. Also provision of traffic lights at major road junctions in the cities because of large volumes of traffic especially at peak periods. This will ensure safety and guarantee ‘clean city mobility’.
