We will make it very interactive one.

Bus reform initiative is a project embark upon by Lagos state government to improve the transportation system of the state and improve the economy also.

Lagos state government will commission over 800 buses for the first phase of the program and others will follow soon.

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES

The program is to sanitize the transportation industry and to improve the business with modern buses.

We also believe this will improve the environment from all emissions and different harassment from commercial drivers and conductors.

Over 10,000 youths will be employed to work in different units

The modern buses won’t need bus conductors because passengers will be using cards to pay.

There are special cards design for this purpose not the bank ATM card.

BUS OPERATION

There are different bus terminals all over Lagos for easy and comfort. They are accessible by the able and disables.

You will only need to “TAP IN, TAP OUT ” This easily means ones the machine reads you card as payment that’s “TAP IN” you will equally need to read out for “TAP OUT” So that the machine will stop deducting fare from your card.

N/B: Failure to do this, might result to lost of cash on the card. Please, do take note of that.

TERMINALS

The bus terminal are done in way that, it will be convenient for commuters to join taxi to their respective destination.

The bus and taxi terminals are close to each other.

All these are put to place to reduce accidents from using motorcycles (bike) as a means of transport in Lagos.

This will also bring safety of lives and properties to the people.

Robbers and kidnappers had used the opportunity of breaking down of buses on highway and odd areas to exhibit their evil plans.

GOVERNMENT :

Gov. Akinwunmi Ambode said,
“The intention is not to drive away Danfo buses (Commercial Buses). Buses in Lagos right now are never enough. Government is intending to inject 5,000 buses, but we do not intend to operate them.

We would recruit drivers and personnel to work on those buses.
“For a driver upgrading from Danfo to bus, that is a means of employment. We, as government, are creating avenue for people to get employed.

Our plans is to improve Lagos state, so we can attract investors . Government will introducing more facilities on our waterways, roads and our walkways to make life more comfortable for our people.

Ambode added, “Apart from adding to the aesthetics of the State with the impressive blue and white colour, the new environmentally-friendly high capacity buses, which are now arriving the state in batches, were also equipped with modern facilities to bring about comfort and seamless travelling experience along the dedicated routes.

“Under the Bus Reform Initiative, 5,000 new buses are expected to be added to the public transport system, while other components of the scheme such as modern bus terminals, bus depots, bus stops and segregated lay-bys are already springing up in strategic locations across the state.”

Ambode disclosed that arrangement had also being firmed up as part of the short-term plan for the buses to be assembled in Lagos, which would in turn create jobs for the people, and as well serve to properly maintain the buses.
