Transportation Commissioner Frederick Oladeinde, made this known on Wednesday, May 27, during the 2020 ministerial press briefing at the JJT Park, Alausa, Ikeja.
Oladehinde said the new bus mass transport initiative “will be rolled out in the next two months”, which is about July 2020.
The commissioner explained that Okada and tricycle are not part of the state’s transport architecture, laying emphasis on the fact that they constitute nuisance on the roads and cause an increasing rate of accidents and crimes.
“We have identified 285 last-mile routes within the seven bus reform initiative zones across Lagos. We have developed bus specifications and shared same with potential bus manufacturers. We expect these to be rolled out in the next two months,” Oladeinde said.’
He also noted that the Lagos state government has inaugurated 37 roads and carried out repairs and rehabilitation of more than 354 others.
Oladehinde added that ongoing and uncompleted projects inherited from past administrations would be completed to improve the living standard of Lagosians.
