Commuters along the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) and Bus Franchise Scheme (BFS) corridors would enjoy free ride in commemoration of Easter, the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
The free bus service would be offered on the BRT corridor from Ikorodu to CMS by Primero Transport Services Limited, operator of the Ikorodu to CMS BRT system while Capetrust Investment Ltd, operator of the BFS would offered free bus service along the Maryland – Ikeja-Iyana-Ipaja – Ikotun- Igando corridor.
Acting Managing Director of Lagos Metropolitan Area Transport Authority (LAMATA), Mr. Iyiola Adegboye while felicitating with Lagosians on the Easter holiday said the state government was poised to ensure that the vision for a world class transport for Lagos became a reality.
He enjoined Lagosians to use the period of resurrection of Jesus Christ to reflect on the challenges facing Nigeria and pray for the nation.
He said the free bus service was part of the government’s effort to help commuters move around with ease in the face of the current fuel scarcity.
