The study was guided by positivism philosophy where census was applied and adopted mixed method research design. Data from the Sacco Managers was collected using a structured questionnaire, while an interview schedule was used for the representatives from both the MoT and VOA. Data was analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics, and the results revealed that influence of integrated employee training, had significant influence on sustainable mobility of Matatu Saccos in public transport sector in Nairobi County, Kenya. The results also revealed that there has been training of simple technical skills, such as, maintenance of vehicles and first aid to the drivers.
