Lagosians clamour for expansion of BRT

Post  Admin on Wed Dec 03, 2008 4:27 pm

Residents of Lagos have called on the state government to expand the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) to cover the unreached areas. The BRT launched in March 2008 has put smile on the faces of many Lagosians and eased their transportation problem.

In a survey conducted by post graduate students of the Mass Communication Department, University of Lagos and supervised by Professor Idowu Sobowale, it was revealed that Lagosians were happy and satisfied with the operation of the scheme because it saved them time and money. It also removed the tension of struggling to board commercial buses.

Through the research carried out by Oyelade Oluwaseyi, Apata Oluwayemisi, Madu Aloysius and Sulaiman Mudasir, it was revealed that 53.8 per cent of Lagosians who responded to the question whether they agreed that the BRT service should be expanded to cover other routes said they strongly agreed.

At least 36.2 per cent of the respondents said they agreed to the extension of the service.
Those who said they do not agree or strongly disagreed were 7.7 per cent and 2.3 per cent respectively.
The survey, which sampled opinions of 793 residents of the nation’s foremost commercial city indicated that the percentage of those who did not show concern about the BRT expansion was insignificant.

Prior to the advent of the BRT scheme, the transportation system in Lagos was chaotic to the extent that it was always war between conductors and commuters in commercial buses without a convenient alternative.
The commercial buses on Lagos roads were inadequate and operators increased fares arbitrarily at the slightest opportunity.
Lagosians commended Governor Fashola administration for the BRT scheme, noting that it had made life better and more comfortable for them.
