Developing countries are facing sustainability problems in developing rural transport infrastructure; the problems arise from the lack of financial resource and public support. Enhancing community participation promises to resolve these challenges. Demographics has a strong influence on community participation; however, how demographic characteristics interact with community participation has been yet to be focally studied. Dong Nai, a southern province in Vietnam, was selected as the case study owing to its high requirement of rural transport infrastructure. Questionnaires were sent to 438 households. An analysis of data was performed descriptively and with logistic regression. Community participation was recorded as financial, labor, material, and land contribution. Household composition, education, income, and member in household as community leader are among the highest influential factors to community participation. With the importance of community participation, the results of the study benefits both policy makers and local governments in planning, predicting the success of local development programs, and enhancing community participation, which increase the chance of success in rural transport infrastructure.
