Lagos Bans LAGBUS From Plying Ikorodu Road.
Residents of Ikorodu community in Lagos are currently staging a protest after the state government banned LAGBUS (the red bus) from plying their route.
The acting commissioner of transportation Prince Anofiu Olarenwaju Elegushi at a press conference said the decision was made to introduce intelligent traffic system in the state.
“Henceforth, the LAGBUS buses can only provide end to end bus services using the expressway and service lanes along the Ikorodu Road stretch. The restriction does not extend to charter staff buses run by LAGBUS; does not preclude access to depot along Ikorodu road and express services are allowed with only few designated stops. All routes from Ikorodu hinterland will now terminate at TOS Benson Bus Stop after which there will be no loading of passengers. However, the operations of LAGBUS buses have been moved to other 14 routes identified by the Lagos State Metropolitan Transport Master Plan.”
