This paper examines the sources of inequality in the cost of transport mobility in the city of Yaoundé, Cameroon. The variables that measure employment, the average distance covered by the respondent, the average time to the destination, the cost of fuel, and whether the respondent resides in the central business district are positively related to the cost of transport mobility. Two variables, travelling by motorcycle and the cost of fuel, largely account for inequality in the cost of transport mobility. The policy implications of the analysis include the need for adequately managing emerging means of transportation, such as motorcycles, in cities like Yaoundé.
