Lagos BRT to commute 20 passengers per bus

In compliance with the government measures to contain the spread of the COVID-19 disease, state owned Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) in Lagos, says it will only be carrying 20 commuters with face masks per bus as from Monday to contain further spread of COVID-19.

Mr Fola Tinubu, Managing Director, Primero Transport Services Ltd, operators of the BRT, who disclosed this while addressing the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos on Saturday said that the 21st person onboard would be the driver.

His words,“We are going to carry only 20 passengers per bus, the 21st person on bus will be the driver starting from Monday.

“We will only be doing long distance; we will only be selling N200, N250 and N300 tickets. We will not be doing short distance of N100 or N150 stuff. So, anybody that wants to do short distance will have to pay for the long distance.

“We want to concentrate with the buses on the long distance since we can only carry 20 people. We will not sell ticket for short distance at all,” he told NAN.

According to him, all the passengers must wear masks and sanitise their hands before they will be allowed to board buses.

He said while the firm would provide alcohol-based hand sanitisers before the trip and after the trip, passengers should provide the mask by themselves.

Tinubu said that the firm would adhere strictly to the guidelines by the Lagos State Metropolitan Transport Authority (LAMATA), its regulator.
