dc.description.abstract The study aims to examine the socio - economic impacts of public transport service that is affecting the majority of passengers from Megenagna to Kotebe. This is one of the oldest and highly populated routes of Addis Ababa. The study involves the cases of 10 individuals. The selection of participants for this study was based on a strategy referred as, “purposeful selection. The residential history of passengers along Megnagna to Kotebe route has been used as preliminary criteria to select participants of the study. All participants of the study lived more than 5 years in this route. Hence, they are able to give detailed picture on the nature of public transportation service provision and their daily experience as a regular user. To explore the nature of public transport delivery, the study used in-depth interview with purposive sampling technique and all the data have been transcribed, translated and later on organized and presented thematically.The findings of the study indicated that, the numbers of residents of these localities of the city are poorly matched with the number and type of public transport providers. As a result, the worst public transport shortage faced on daily basis. These transportation shortages are obliging residents of the route to be late from their work/ school, travel with suffocated and overcrowded conditions or forced them to spend more money on transport due to the unlawful frequent increment by public transport providers. This study also revealed a gap in regulating the public transport service provision. Hence, the concerned institutions and stakeholders dealing with public transportation management should channel their efforts towards increasing the mobility of passengers in the route.
