The Lagos State Government over the weekend banned LAGBUS (red buses) from plying the Ikorodu Road corridor with effect from today.
The state government said the decision was to introduce Intelligent Traffic System along the BRT corridor, and that all other franchises, apart from the BRT (blue buses) had to relocate from the corridor.
However, it was a nightmare for residents of Ikorodu, this morning when it was brought to their notice that the red bus drivers and hoodlums shut down the BRT Lanes, hindering Blue buses from operating.
The ban has left people plying Ilorodu -Mile 12-Ketu- Ojota-Maryland-Oshodi route, stranded since 6am.
The acting Commissioner for Transportation, Mr. Olarenwaju Elegushi, said all LAGBUS buses could only provide end to end bus services using the expressway and service lanes along the Ikorodu road stretch.
He said the state government was determined to enhance and boost commuters’ experience along the corridor, adding that the present arrangement had constrained the capacity of the BRT bus services to cater for the people.
Srupid headline very misleading, they are only banned from the BRT corridor on ikorodu road but can still play the conventional lanes.
It not stupid
Apc govt is always the same pattern of ruling, always going against people will and wish
Try as much as possible to applying common sense before commenting on a post… Thank you.
OluGbemi Samuel Obama….. I like ur type
Government we need good roads not BRT.. I’m not a fan of BRT bcoz it’s 4 under G business
If they were banned from BRT road, was there any provision made for their pick&drop of passenger prio to the ban taking place ?
We have BRT buses owned by Lagos State Government… and or look alike Long buses like Lagbus&co own by individuals…. so they didn’t ban the lagbus on ikorodu road axis they only stop them for plying BRT lanes.
its better bcos the red ones have reckless drivers…mad conductors..
