This study analyzed the modal split of intra urban trips in Nigeria using the centenary city of Enugu as a case study. It provides the basis for a holistic approach towards the formulation of appropriate urban transport policy. Discriminant analysis was used to analyze the modal split. The results show that majority of commuters use public transport modes for intra urban trips, whereas private transport (car) was the single most used mode for intra urban trips. About 82.4% of commuters that use private transport for intra urban trips preferred the mode, whereas 17.65% will switch to public transport modes. On the other hand, 95.9% of commuters that used public transport for intra urban trips preferred their modes whereas 4.1% will switch to private transport. Car ownership had the strongest influence on the modal split.
