The Lagos state government is set to launch a new ride hailing service, LagRide (Lagos Ride)
The service with the tagline…ride in comfort will be launched shortly and according to a statement by the state governor “is targeted at improving mobility and creating a multi-modal transportation system for Lagosians.”
Continuing the governor noted that ““The scheme is in fulfilment of our desire to give residents better transportation choices. The modern ride service is one of the State Government’s socio-economic intervention programmes, which will be professionally managed in line with global best practices.”
On Sunday February 20, 2022, Lagos Ride caused a stir on 3rd Mainland Bridge with a display of hundreds of the blue colour branded Lagos Ride vehicles.
Traffic was reduced to a snarl as motorists gawked at the long convoy of vehicles.
The app is available on google play store where the company describes itself as “a mobility solution that will allow users book and share the cost of a ride with similar transit patterns. It will link up users based on their preferred pick and drop off points each not more than 1km apart respectively and pick-up time not more than 5 mins apart.”
