The mandate was implemented yesterday as Lagosians went about their various Christmas activities without having to pay for BRT services or toll pass. The buses were available in all areas of the state, taking residents to their various locations. The same activity is expected to continue on New Year Day according to the Governor’s direction.

Since coming into office, Sanwo-Olu has been committed to making transportation in the state as seamless as possible for the masses. He has taken measures to reduce the heavy traffic the Centre of Excellence is infamous for. Some of these measures include declaring free pass in the city’s toll gates on some days and at certain hours. Come January 1, 2020, the Ikoyi toll gate will go digital. Cash payments will no longer be accepted from motorists plying that route. This will help reduce traffic in the area.
