dc.description.abstract This study was aimed at identifying the ICT devices used in the Nigerian transport sector and the formulation of infusion models for each identified ICT device. Structured questionnaires were used to collect information regarding the use of the ICT devices used in the Nigerian transport sector identified from 100 staffs selected from six (6) different transport companies in southwestern Nigeria. The different ICT devices identified were: smartphones, SMS, e-mails, company website, bulk sms, ticket reservations, vehicle trackers, POS systems and 2-way radio. The results of the study showed that majority of respondents were married male drivers of Ibo ethnicity within ages of 31 – 40 years which was 57% of the respondents selected. The results of the study also showed that the earliest ICT tools adopted were: SMS, e-mails, bulk sms, company websites, ticket reservations and vehicle trackers in 2001 while smartphones, POS and 2-way radios were adopted by 2006. The results showed that more people adopted SMS and smartphone use but none of the adopted users were up to 25% of the total number of respondents selected for this study. Although, 52% of the respondents were computer compliant it was observed that only a small number of respondents (24% of respondents) were adopters of the identified ICT technologies. Polynomial functions of degree, m were used to formulate the infusion model for each ICT devices identified based on the yearly cumulative distribution of the number of users. The infusion models formulated can be used to estimate the number of users of ICT devices for any given year from the year of adoption of the ICT device. en_US
