PostSubject: Ambode donates 50 new buses to BRT   Tue 17 May 2016, 8:07 am

The Lagos State Government says mass transit buses will cushion any effect that removal of subsidy and subsequent increase petrol price will have on Lagosians.

The state Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, therefore, on Monday donated 50 mass transit buses into the operations of the Bus Rapid Transit scheme.

The Managing Director, Primero Transport Limited, Fola Tinubu, said the governor’s gesture would not only cushion the effect of fuel price, it would stabilise transport fares.

He spoke in the Ikorodu area of the state during the inauguration of the buses.

Tinubu said the company would not increase its fares despite the prompt service that the new injection guarantees for commuters.

He said, “The introduction of the 50 buses was undertaken by the governor to reduce the effect of the hike in fuel price on Lagosians in the hope that more people in Ikorodu and its environs will enjoy the BRT service while leaving their vehicles at home.

“This will go a long way in reducing traffic to the road users and waiting time at various terminals.

“The multiplier effect of this development is the creation of more employment opportunities for drivers, fleet officers, inspectors, mechanics and ticketers, among others, for the smooth running and operations of the scheme.”
