Lagos To Procure 2,000 Vehicles 


The Lagos State Government has announced plans to acquire a minimum of 2,000 vehicles to enhance its state-run public transport system, with a particular focus on the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system.  

The Commissioner for Transportation, Oluwaseun Osiyemi, in a chat with NAN on Sunday explained that the initiative aims to alleviate the long lines seen at BRT stations throughout the state, attributed to a current shortfall in buses.  

He said“We’re aware of the long queues in all our stations, especially on Mondays. 

“We’re working better to serve the good people of Lagos State. 

“We’re almost done with the procurement of 2,000 BRT buses to ease the queues in the stations. 


“You know Lagos State believes in public and private partnership. 

“Therefore, an oil company is giving us 50 electric buses in addition to the ones the state government is procuring. 

“So, residents of Lagos State will no longer have to suffer the long queues,” he
