As the problems of transporting University of Ilorin, Nigeria students to and from campus are on the increase and it is gradually affecting learning due to limited transportation options. The main objective of this paper is to examine the effectiveness of the road transport system at the University of Ilorin, Nigeria. The study theoretical framework is based on human capital theory. To achieve this objective, questionnaires were distributed to students using a simple sampling technique in choosing respondents from the students residential areas. And descriptive statistics and multinomial probit regression models were used in analyzing the data collected. The result indicates that there is an inadequate supply of transport modes particularly during peak periods which limited the effectiveness of transportation in the study area. Therefore, recommendations were made so that government, school authorities, and other stakeholders should take measures that will enhance the effectiveness of the transport system. Such measures include transport education, well-structured transport, and lecture timetables to reduce rushing periods, consideration should be given to e-learning and the policy of decreasing the cost of transport and providing adequate transport infrastructure should be implemented. These recommendations if adhered to, will reduce students stress, and enhance their study capacity, which will in turn, improve human capital development.

Keywords: Human development, Transportation, Transport system, University of Ilorin.
