Lagos State government has deployed 65 new buses to ply on affected routes as it vows there is no going back on Okada ban. Government had promised that more buses would be released at various routes to ease the shortfall following protests and burning of cars by angry protesters over the tricycle( Keke) and commercial motorcycles ban recently.
Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu therefore directed the Lagos Bus Services Limited (LBSL) to deploy a fleet of 65 buses along major routes, last Monday, to provide succour and ameliorate the hardship commuters might face as a result of the restriction order on the operators of motorcycles and tricycles in some parts of the state.
Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer (LBSL), Idowu Oguntona, said extending the services of the company to more locations would help reduce the gap created by the restriction order of Lagos State government on Okada and Keke operators in some areas.
Oguntona who assured that commuters will enjoy the travel comfort of the new buses, also disclosed that more buses will be deployed by the company in no distant time.
Meanwhile, below are the new routes where the LBSL is expected to extend its services and their fares:
