Abstract

This is an evaluative study of effect of inland water transport infrastructural modernization on passenger patronage in Lagos, Nigeria using Structural Equation Modelling (SEM). This study examined factors relating to influence of infrastructural development and modernization in the maritime transport sector. A cross-sectional survey research design with a quantitative method was adopted. A purposive sampling technique was employed to select 10 jetty locations in the study area. The reliability of the adopted SEM model was confirmed with a Cronbach’s Alpha α value of .879; while convergent validity as well as discriminant validity were established. Conclusively, the findings of the study revealed trends of infrastructural modernization significantly predicated passenger patronage of about 40%. Infrastructural modernization was also observed to predict passenger patronage by about 35% while public-private partnership predicted patronage by 20%.
