The LAGBUS and BRT busses are heavily patronized by thousands of lagosians who prefer to board them due to their low price and dedicated lanes by which they bypass traffic. But starting from Wednesday, March 1, 2017, there will be an increased price in services of LAGBUS and BRT.. following the Lagos State Government’s approval of upward review in their fares.
According to the LAMATA director: “The increase in price of these services is as a result of the current economic recession that has increased all costs associated with the operation of the Public transport beyond any financial forecast or projection”
He said that though the government was aware of the current financial complications Lagos residents were facing, it approved the fare increase to save the bus schemes from collapsing. While speaking to news men, Engr. Dabiri appealed to commuters to show understanding as the new fares take effect.
From March 1, commuters from Ikorodu to Mile 12 would pay N100 as against N75.
From Ikorodu to Fadeyi, commuters would pay N200 instead of N120
From Ikorodu to CMS, commuters would pay N300, instead of N200.
From CMS to Ajah, commuters would pay N200, instead of N150.
From Leventis to Eko Hotel, commuters would pay N100 instead of N70
From Oshodi to CMS, comuters would pay N150 as against N100.
