Lagosians to enjoy Sanwo-Olu’s free transport service on New Year’s Day

As the world wakes to the shining sun of the first day of 2020, Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu has declared free bus ride for commuters in Lagos on New Year’s Day.

Anchoring his goodwill on reducing traffic congestion and road crashes associated with festive periods, he explained that “Two bus operators – Primero Transport Services Limited and Lagos Bus Services Limited – will offer free bus services on their allotted routes.”

A statement by the Government averred that “The Governor’s gesture is to aid the mobility of the people on New Year’s Day as well as encourage those who own vehicles to use public transport rather than put their vehicles on the road.

Primero Transport Services Limited (PTSL will run Ikorodu – TBS, Ikorodu – Oshodi, Yaba – Oyingbo and Ikorodu – Ikeja routes.

Responding to the directive, the Managing Director of Lagos Metropolitan Area Transport Authority (LAMATA), Engr. Mrs. Abimbola Akinajo, noted that the Governor was keen to see to the growth of public transport hence his commitment to the Strategic Transport Master Plan.

She said this has been further affirmed by his commitment to bringing the Blue Line and Red Line Rail projects to passenger operation within the life of his administration as well as secure investors for four other rail lines recently advertised for expression of interest.

Engr. Akinajo urged Lagosians to keep faith with the government as it explores every avenue to improve public transport and traffic management to ease the mobility of Lagosians and reduce congestion.
