Regulated high capacity buses in Lagos operated by Primero Transport Services Limited and Lagos Bus Services Limited can now carry 42 passengers seated and no standing, Lagos State Government announced yesterday.
The announcement followed a review of its earlier order which limited commuter occupancy to 21 passengers but still ensures that occupancy is not more than 60 per cent of bus passenger capacity. The review takes effect from today.
Managing Director of the Lagos Metropolitan Area Transport Authority (LAMATA), Mrs. Abimbola Akinajo, said the government also approved two fare zones for BRT services.
Bus services between Ikorodu and Fadeyi will attract a fare of N300 and trips beyond Fadeyi will attract N500, she said. (Nation)
