Over 800 buses will be used for a start at the just recently-inaugurated Bus Terminal that would cater for four million people daily, said the Government.

Commissioner for Transportation Ladi Lawanson revealed this on Saturday during a visit to the terminal and the Oshodi Transport Interchange construction site.

According to him, “The state government is coming with multimodal and integrated transportation system which will take care of about four million people on a daily basis across the state.

“The idea is to cater for residents of especially lower and middle classes, who cannot afford to fund their own cars everyday.

“We should be expecting some buses like over 800 that Lagos State Government has procured to kick-start operation for the benefit of the residents.”

He added that, “It is also a major transport hub on the Lagos mainland, as it is a major node of very important corridors in Lagos such as Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway, Agege Motor Road, Mobolaji Bank Anthony Way, Oba Akran Way and Awolowo Way.

“Ikeja Terminal is a key transport infrastructure constructed to improve efficiency in system connections, reduce traffic congestion caused by ongoing street loading and dropping off of passengers, reduce environmental pollution and improve security and safety of the commuting public.”
