The Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has slashed the fares of the state public transport system by 50%. The governor made this known in a video shared by his Senior Special Assistant, Jubril Gawat, via his Twitter handle on Wednesday.
The governor said that the fare reduction was put in place to cushion the effects of the fuel and naira scarcity in the country.
He said, “A 50% cut in fares on all our BRT buses, LAGRIDE taxi scheme, First Mile and Last Mile buses, and Lagos Ferry Services.
This will take effect from tomorrow for the next seven days. We will push out more Cowrie Cards to enable more Lagosians to get on board our services.
“I have directed that food banks be set up in various parts of the State to cater for the vulnerable. We will distribute foodstuff to various communities.”
