Will the new Ikeja Bus Terminal make life better or worse for people in Lagos?

Lagos state has opened a new bus terminal in the heart of the city to help alleviate the problem of the traffic and go-slows – but do they also plan to remove the yellow danfos and make bus conductors wear suits?

The new Ikeja bus terminal was commissioned by Buhari on March 28, 2018, together with Lagos Governor Ambode.

“I commend the Governor for development and strides he recorded within the first three years of governance. I recognize the push of the State Government in reforming public transportation especially the Bus Reform Project which will make modern transport buses that are air-conditioned available to the people,” said President Buhari.

The Lagos state government has tried to do this before with BRT and LAGBUS, but many of the buses are now older and the uniforms in bad shape.

“It won’t work in Lagos,” says one Nigerian street hustler. “The population is too much so they will still need danfo buses.”

“It should not take jobs from danfo drivers, and when people want to go to work, the danfos are the life savers,” says one Lagos girl.

But many Lagosians are hopeful that the new project will open p new areas in Lagos for property, business, as well as jobs.

“It’s very nice, the building and structure, it looks very modern,” says one Nigerian guy. “And this road will make traffic flow a lot faster.”

Do you think the new project will work?

    Actually i think it’s q good idea to get rid of all thoes yellow buses, because it looks more nice than yellow buses all over the city, i currently live in Germany and it’s really better, trust me i know the difference, i was living in Nigeria till 2016 although not Lagos i was in Benin city which is the 5th largest city in Nigeria and it has the same problem with lagos, it’s just that the unemployment rate will be sky rocketed

    There are bringing medium and big size BRT buses. and they can just put a Pole or a pole and a chair and then call it Bustop.

    You don’t need to start building fancy bustop. Its only Nigeria that has something like Danfo. Every time they show Lagos or Lagos population in the media its always filled with Yellow buses Screaming Yaba. If they were orderly and neat like the one in Captain America 3 it would even be better. So Ban in for the progress of naija

    Is a welcome development at least it would be a way to reduce or eliminate completely 1chance victims in Lagos and also beautifying the city… Go to Brazil I knew for instance, bus drivers looks great and smart when it comes to mode of dressing. To me I appreciate gov ambode for good work here

    Secondly, I think it’s necessary for the govt. to look into how to purchase the tickets by the customers with the use of an electronic bus card to make it faster not to put travelers in a point of delays, it can be subscribed online or at the terminal or any shops that deal on that .. supermarkets.. pharmacy stores etc. It’s very simple and saves time.

    Maintenance and cleanliness is also needed. Dropping wastes on the streets should be tackled.
