BRT operator assures passengers of buses’ maintenance
Lagos residents will be having no free Bus Rapid Transit rides during the Eid-el-Kabir celebrations, operators have said.

Operators of the BRT, Primero Transport Services Limited, operators of the Lagos Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) and its counterpart, Lagos Bus Service Ltd (LBSL) on Wednesday ruled out the possibility of the usual free ride during festivities.

The Managing Director, Mr. Fola Tinubu, said the outfits would not provide free ride during the Eid-el-Kabir.

He said: “There’s no free ride.”

The Public Affairs Officer of LBSL, Mr. Afolabi Olawale, said free ride had been suspended since Easter over the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic.

“Free ride was suspended for Easter, Eid-el-Fitri as well as for this Eid-el-Kabir. This is because nobody is going to any prayer ground or for any economic activity.

“So, we are to stay at home and keep safe,” he said.
