We?ll deploy buses to replace Okada and Keke Napep in July -  Lagos transportation commissioner, Frederick Oladeinde

Frederick Oladeinde, the transportation commissioner in Lagos state has revealed that they will be deploying more buses in July to replace okadas and keke napep which has been banned from plying some routes in the state. 

He said that the state government has sent bus specifications to potential manufacturers and is working towards implementing a “first mile and last mile (FMLM) mobility solution” to help Lagosians navigate the state with ease.

Oladeinde said; 

“Following the restriction of motorcycles and tricycles for commuter operations in some areas in the metropolis, the government is working on implementing a First Mile and Last Mile (FMLM) mobility solution. 

“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.”

The Commissioner announced the completion of Oshodi-Abule Egba bus rapid transit (BRT) corridor during the press briefing, and also disclosed that bus terminals in Agege, Ojota, Ajah, International Airport, Yaba and Oyingbo are at different stages of completion.

Oladeinde added; 

“The Ikeja bus terminal is now operational and currently serving three routes, which include Ikeja to Obalende, CMS and TBS, Ikeja to Iyana Ipaja and Ikeja to Ikorodu. 

“In the last one year of this administration, there has been an improvement in the public transit system through the deployment of 200 high capacity buses to move Lagosians from one destination to the other on daily basis.

“During the year under review, more than 80,000 passengers were commuted daily and recently 10 million passengers was achieved in 10-month operation of the Lagos Bus Service Limited (LBSL).

“As this administration progresses, we must continue to pursue vigorously, within the timeframe and limited resources, the state’s vision of transforming Lagos into a smart city that is safe, secured, functional and productive.

“This administration has employed international best practice models and reforms for effective transformation of Lagos state.”
