As human populations become more and more urban decision-makers at all levels face new challenges, related to both scale of mobility provision and the increasing complexity of services, needs within the complexity of the city and the roads networks that connect them. These problems may take a unique aspects in the city with different, political, cultures, policy, institutional frameworks at different levels, stages of development, types of vehicles, different modes that they frequently have in common, an origin in movement Interaction of operations and in environmental systems. The result which affects their relationships in decision making on dynamic evolution. Systems approaches become recognized as critical means to understanding and addressing such transportation problems, such as those related to movement of people, distribution of goods and services, human health wellbeing, management of congestion, time valve utilization, multimodal systems, connectivity’s for cities is an area where such approaches operates. The role of modern roads and duralization of road with transport information technology systems and connected to rail system, inland waterway jetties, local airport in multimodal systems as critical to understand and solve such complex problems in city sustainability transportation systems. The finding seeks to summarize links between roads, rail, waterways, and airport in cities and outline two main elements of system approaches, analytic methods to resolve complexity, intermodals and multimodal roles transportation in mega cities. Using Lagos State as a case study of sustainable city, urban socioeconomic and multimodal transportation system in developing nation. The research shows the impacts of multimodal transport systems in Sustainable city.
