December 21, 2015 – Lagos State Government Approves Free BRT & LAG Bus Ride For Disabled, Physically Challenged
Effectively immediate, all disabled people will now have access to BRT & LAGBUS in the state for no fee.
Here is a statement signed today by Lagos State Transportation Commissioner, Dayo Mobereola
“It has become necessary to state this against the background of observed huge traffic gridlock experienced at this festive period. The situation reflects the disdain of motorists for the traffic laws and officers on the one hand and gross indiscipline exhibited by motorists on the other.
“For the avoidance of doubt, please note that the traffic officers, whether the men of Nigerian Police, the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) or the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASMA) are there to serve us but will view infractions with the eyes of the law.
“While we wish you all a very happy festival period, we urge you to please ensure that safety is a priority for both passengers and drivers alike. Please observe all the rudiments of safe commuting by obeying the traffic regulations. We wish you Christmas and a happy and prosperous New Year”.
