The study has the aim of elaborating on some of the causes of transportation problems in multi-campuses in higher institutions of learning and their possible solution.
The method of research used to collect information for the study is secondary source, with the help of secondary source, the researcher was able to ascertain some of the causes of transportation’s problem in multi-campuses in higher institutions of learning such as bad road etc and their possible solution.
Based on these findings, useful suggestions were equally made on how to solve the problem of transportation in multi-campuses. Some of these suggestions include proper management, re-orientation, abolition of multi-campuses system etc.
Life expectance has never met anyone without some hitches. This is a result of the unclear nature of the world we are in.
Transportation case, is not an exception, in schools or in the commercial sector, transportation has been a major stumbling block to economic growth.
In our higher institution, especially the multi-campuses, this has gained lots of havoc to the human resource development. This becomes more complex when it has been confirmed that almost nothing is done to alleviate the problem by the authority that be.
Education is one of the greatest assets for any nation. It is a long run profitable venture for any nation. Transport to say is the knitting needle with which every other national affair is being brought together and education is not an exception. Due to its prime importance to bringing people in different location together, its negative effect has deterred the advancement of education in higher institutions especially the multi-campus ones. But it, students can go to school and to their home especially for non residential institution or movement from one of the campus to the other.
This project will go into in-depth investigation to find out the causes of this transportation problem in our campuses and possible way out of the problem(s). A case study is the Institute of Management and Technology, Enugu, Enugu State.
At the end of the study, revelations shall be made on how to improve the transportation problem(s) of the multi-campus institution in our nation.
1.1 OVERVIEW OF TRANSPORTATION/GENERAL BACKGROUND TO SUBJECT MATTER:
MODES OF TRANSPORTATION:
The movement of resources, be it human or material is a location of plenty to that of absent or vice versa has unique mode.
The modes of transportation among other includes:
(i) Land transportation
(ii) Water transportation
(iii) Air transportation
(i) LAND TRANSPORTATION:
This form of transport has been as old as man. People, goods and services are conveyed from one place to another by land. This started with long distance transport on foot followed by the use of animals as Horse and Donkeys for carrying loads. Over the years, as man ingenuity to form the earth to his taste increases, he continues to develop easy and faster modes of land transportation. Amongst these are road transportation and rail transportation.
(ii) WATER TRANSPORTATION:
Is the means of carrying goods and services, people from one location to another by water. This is achieved by means of liners, canoes, ships, engine boat etc. It could be within a country (nation) or between two or more countries (international).
In international water transportation, ocean liners, or streamers and tramp liner are used, and it takes place on high seas, oceans and big risers. National is within the water mass of the country; here we have lances, canoes, and engine boats as the transportation means.
Transportation by water is very good and efficient in making long distant Journey. It is most convenient in carrying bulky goods. The weight of goods carried by this means far outweighs any other form of transportation.
(iii) AIR TRANSPORTATION:
This started with the invention of airplane and helicopter and first flown by the WRIGHT BROTHERS. This form is in no doubt the height of means ingenuity to making transportation much more effective, efficient and faster. It is fastest, align much more effective, efficient and fastest. It is fastest, safer and can convey both people, goods and mail at ease. Bulky goods are also flown into air without a do. It makes the farthest distance ever. International travels are made in hours, and minutes. Presently, homage is being paid to other plants like mars, Jupiter etc by an advanced country from aeroplane called space craft.
