As part of efforts to promote the Inter-Modal and Integrated Transport System in the State, Lagos Traffic Radio and Lagos State Bus Service Limited (LSBSL) have agreed to foster a relationship in their areas of comparative advantage.

The General Manager, Lagos Traffic Radio 96.1 FM. Mr. Tayo Akanle while receiving a delegation led by the Managing Director, Lagos State Bus Service Limited, Mr. Idowu Oguntona stated that Traffic Radio has an unrivalled passion to report traffic situations to help Lagosians navigate freely across the State as well as partner with organisations that have the passion to achieve the vision of the Lagos State Government’s T.H.E.M.E.S Agenda.

“One of the major reasons, why we would partner with the Lagos State Bus Service Limited, is that our online platform is growing and we intend to push it more to attract more people as well as create more Programmes in different languages that will cut across all residents of the State”, the General Manager said.

Akanle noted that the partnership will add greater value towards the realization of Lagos Traffic Radio’s vision to be the ‘most reliable radio station providing traffic information in Africa’.

Earlier, the Managing Director of LSBSL, Mr. Idowu Oguntona commended the Station for its consistency in reporting traffic situations, especially its ability to engage listeners with daily reports on the movement of different modes of transportation across the State.

Oguntona hinted that as Lagos evolves into a Smart City, the LSBSL will harness its resources to create a very competitive space in the transport industry where urban mobility guarantees a market for mass transit transport operators with availability and pricing as key decision drivers.

According to him, the partnership will promote communication about the Bus Reforms as an avenue to redefine the public transportation system in Lagos with the injection of modern buses and terminals targeted towards transforming the way residents commute within the State.

“We are also tasked with the responsibility of ensuring the orderliness, proper coordination and progress of the Transport Industry in Lagos. We were launched on April 24, 2019, by President Muhammad Buhari and have been managed by Lagos State Metropolitan Area Transport Authority, LAMATA”, Oguntona added.

He revealed that the Service started with 50 buses, now has 150 buses and operates on seven routes, including, Berger to CMS; Obalende to TBS; Berger to Oshodi; Oshodi to TBS; Ikeja to CMS and TBS; Ikeja to Alausa; and Ikeja to Iyana Ipaja, with priority seating for the physically challenged, the elderly and pregnant women.

Noting that each bus has six emergency exits and are equipped with First Aid kits, free WiFi, Television, USB ports for charging phones as well as seven CCTV cameras, Oguntona averred that all the cameras are linked to a control centre that monitors every activity in the fully air-conditioned buses.
