Accessibility is the centre of a sustainable urban area (UN Habitat, 2013). Most developing countries have not achieved accessibility and sustainability of public transportation systems. Cities have deployed mass transit systems, high speed trains and enabled advanced Information and communication Technology (ICT) solutions in public transportation as ways of improving accessibility. Although, ICT has been studied over the years as the possible and ultimate solution to urban transportation problems, it has its failures. Therefore, concerns to improve sustainability of public transportation systems should also focus on socio- economic and land use characteristics of the cities to assess viability of ICT solutions as means to improved, sustainable public transportation systems
