Photos: Protest as Lagos bans LAGBUS from plying Ikorodu Road

Residents of Ikorodu community in Lagos state are currently staging a protest following the decision of the state government to ban the LAGBUS(red buses) from plying their route which already has the BRT (blue buses) plying it.

Acting Commissioner for Transportation, Prince Anofiu Olanrewaju Elegushi, at a press conference on Friday, said the decision was taken ahead of plans to introduce Intelligent Traffic System along the BRT corridor in the state.
Elegushi said consequently, all LAGBUS would no longer be allowed to load or drop passengers along the BRT corridor, pointing out that it was part of steps taken to relocate all other franchises from the use of the corridor.
“Henceforth, the LAGBUS buses can only provide end to end bus services using the expressway and service lanes along the Ikorodu Road stretch. The restriction does not extend to charter staff buses run by LAGBUS; does not preclude access to depot along Ikorodu road and express services are allowed with only few designated stops. All routes from Ikorodu hinterland will now terminate at TOS Benson Bus Stop after which there will be no loading of passengers. However, the operations of LAGBUS buses have been moved to other 14 routes identified by the Lagos State Metropolitan Transport Master Plan.”
This decision however left many of the commuters stranded this morning. They are currently staging a protest and calling on the government to rescind its decision.

That policy is not necessary, the commissiner for transportation should think on improving and impacting positively not implementing rubbish policies.... Is Lagbus not part of LASG initiative? Why are they rubbishing the job done by predecessor instead of doing that Elegushi should improve on it... Lobatan

They are making an alternative. The red buses, if anyone notices are horrible and old. The blue buses are newer, has wifi and air-conditioned. This is to help these same people that are complaining. The people rioting were the red bus drivers so the blue buses couldn't pick up passengers. It is amazing how things are reported falsely and the government blamed for good intentions smdh. Good help this country
