The new ultra Modern Lagos Commercial Buses Have Arrived to Replace the Popular Danfo Buses
With the introduction of ultra-modern new buses, Governor Akinwunmi Ambode-led Lagos State Government is fully prepared to make transportation in the state easy for everyone.
It was reported on February 2017 that the Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, revealed his plans to remove the yellow buses popularly known as Danfo from Lagos roads for a more efficient, well-structured and world class mass transportation system that would facilitate easy movement within the city.
Ambode admitted that the present connectivity mode in Lagos was not acceptable and befitting for a mega city, and as such a well-structured transportation system would soon be put in place to address the challenge.
He said “When I wake up in the morning and see all these yellow buses and see Okada and all kinds of tricycles and we claim we are living in a mega city, that is not true and we must first acknowledge that that is a faulty connectivity that we are running.
“Having accepted that, we have to look for the solution and that is why we want to banish yellow buses this year. We must address the issue of connectivity that makes people to move around with ease and that is where we are going.
Governor Ambode Further said.“For instance, people going from Ikorodu to CMS have started leaving their cars at home because the buses are very convenient and so why can’t we do that for other places? Yes, we don’t have the money to do that but we can go to the capital market and then improve on the technology of collection of fares and that will encourage investors and the city will change,”
