The launch of over 400 BRT buses by Ambode

Just after the inauguration of the Federal Executive Council, Akinwunmi Ambode, the Executive Governor of Lagos State, launched over 400 new BRT buses on the 12th of November, 2015. 412x250xIkorodu-BRT.jpg.pagespeed.ic.-pPyZVNK8Y

The former Governor of the State, Babatunde Fashola, started the BRT initiative and tried to sustain it up until his tenure expired. However, in between his tenure, the buses began to go bad that we now had very few on the roads and many more in the workshps.

To take care of these lapses is what we thought that the new buses were launchedd for. However, the Governor is particular about the Ikorodu axis which is what he said that the new BRT buses were launched for.

While this is a laudable initiative, one that we are very proud of and commend the efforts of the Governor, we do hope that they get maintained and remain on the roads not in the workshops. Also, we do hope that the ones that are old are in the workshops can be worked on, so that we have more BRT buses on the roads, plying all the other routes where people have to stay on long queues, trying to catch a bus home.
