Lagos begins mass transport on five new routes

 The Lagos State Government on Wednesday inaugurated new buses under the Bus Reform Initiative with free rides on five routes.

They were Berger to Tafawa Balewa Square, Berger to Oshodi, Oshodi to TBS, Ikeja to Alausa and Ikeja to Oshodi to commemorate  the 2019 May Day.

 The state  government said normal  bus services would start on Thursday.

An official of the Lagos Bus Services Limited, operator of the buses, Mr Timi Olajide, said out of the 5,000 buses planned for the initiative, the  state government would start  with 820 high and medium capacity buses. He said, “Each  bus has  six emergency exits and a first aid kit, while every seat has a dedicated USB port for charging phones, free Wi-Fi, television and CCTV cameras  linked to our control centre to monitor everything going on in the buses, among other features.

“We have also taken the issue of people with disabilities specially and there are seats reserved for them.”

At the Oshodi Transport Interchange, a cross section of Lagos residents who enjoyed the free service, lauded Governor Akinwunmi Ambode for the buses.
