Commuters in Lagos can now pay as low as N20 depending on the distance of their journey using the newly launched electronic ticket for the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) in the state metropolis.Lagos state Deputy Governor, Adejoke Orelope-Adefulire commissioned the e-ticketing at the CMS Bus Stop in Lagos yesterday, and described the initiative as the newest way of alleviating poverty among the residents of the state. “It is part of the integrated model transportation we are doing in Lagos. With this, we have made the transportation system more friendly and efficient for the people of Lagos State.
Commuters will save a lot of money using this card because they don’t have to pay for the charges of the entire route destination. They will be charged based on where they alight from the bus,” she said.
According to Orelope-Adefulire, the e-ticketing is designed to solve some of the problems associated with the old ticketing system of the BRT buses, and the government was committed to continuously improve on the transportation system of the state.
