Linear programming has served as a great tool in dealing with transportation problems to make a positive difference in economic and social activity. In this work, data of the National Union Of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) is analysed to minimizing the cost of maintenance and repair of buses taking the route from Sango park to different routes. Data collected from the park are represented using tables and solved using the Maple computer software application. The transportation problem is

This is achieved by estimating the values of some identifi ed parameters in the problem. This work will be benefi cial to every other motor parks controllers to decide on some decision making that may bring to the union profi t. This work will help the NURTW in Sango to spend less on the vehicles and save more as income.
