Lagos Gov, Sanwo-Olu Okays Free BRT Ride On Christmas, New Year

Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has approved free rides on Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) corridors on Christmas and New Year days.

Free bus commuter services would be offered to Lagosians on the Ikorodu to TBS, Oshodi to Abule Egba and Lagos Badagry Expressway BRT corridors on both days.

According to a statement by the Managing Director of the Lagos Metropolitan Area Transport Authority (LAMATA), Mrs. Abimbola Akinajo, it noted that the free commuter bus services were in the spirit of joy, love and peace which the season of Christmas signifies.

The statement reads: “Mr. Governor is convinced that the best way to end the year and begin a new one is with hope, having faced many hardships during 2021.

“Lagosians must, therefore, enter the New Year, which promises to change and improve the commuter experience, in comfort.

“The Governor has given his promise for the commencement of passenger operations on the first two phases of the state’s rail lines – Blue and Red line.

“He has demonstrated this commitment to the completion of both rail lines by sourcing funds for their completion and provision of rolling stock.

“What is, therefore, expected of us is to support him so that we are able to realize his vision.”

While extending her compliments to all Lagosians, she enjoined them to observe all COVID-19 safety rules and travel safely.
