The growth of regions and cities is dependent on transportation infrastructure. Access to city transportation infrastructure services, in general, has a significant impact on reducing income disparity. Despite all efforts to adopt a sustainable transport policy in Nigeria, the country's transportation infrastructure remains in poor condition, thwarting the lofty goal of reshaping the transportation network and economy. As a result, this study has demonstrated the need for proper transportation infrastructure investment as a panacea and national remedy for the Nigerian economy's enhancement and acceleration of economic growth and functioning national mobility. This study adopted the empirical exploratory analysis by surveying stakeholders in the state of Lagos. A qualitative research technique was employed, which included conducting in-depth interviews. The study  recommended that the federal government's budget allocation to the transportation sector be raised, as this will increase funding directed toward improving existing transportation infrastructure such as roads, bridges, seaports, airports, trains, and canals.
