Riding on BRT


A little over a year ago, the Lagos government commenced the bus rapid transit (BRT) services to enable easier mass transportation in the metropolis. The buses travel on a special lane which other road users are barred from using. It's more like a tram service only on wheels.

One year on, the service has increased bus routes to a couple of new neighbourhoods in Lagos and many commuters are thankful. I'm one of them.

An African city with rapid transit? That works? I don't believe it. :)

It's fascinating to see how the country has changed - and remained the same - over the years. Thanks for maintaining this blog!
