Lagos State, the most populous state in Nigeria, is one of the fastest-growing cities in the world. It is also considered as one of the world’s 36 mega-cities.
Transportation within the state is principally by road. This often leaves the internal roads and expressways congested at peak hours, due in part to the geography of the city, as well as its explosive population growth.
A new monorail system that is supposed to span the length of the Badagry expressway to Lagos Island is currently under construction.
Despite the introduction of the BRT bus system and over 800 new intra-city buses by the Akinwunmi Ambode-led administration, there is still a significant deficit of public mass transit vehicles in Lagos.
The photos below show the daily challenges of getting available mass transit vehicles faced by residents of Lagos state.
