3 Things Lagosians Should Expect As Gov. Sanwo-Olu Set To Replace Okadas With Last Mile Buses

In January 2020, Governor SanwoOlu of Lagos state banned Commercial Motorcycles and Trycicle from Lagos State clearly stating that it wasn't part of the greater Lagos plan and also added that it wasn't a enduring trade.

But in the mid hours of yesterday The Lagos State Governor put smile on the faces of Lagosians after he announced that he'd be launching "Last mile buses" as a replacement of Motorcycles aka okadas next week.

The Governor mentioned specifically in a stakeholders meeting which was held yesterday that over 500 buses will be deployed to ease the transportation stress of Lagosians.

So here are the three things Lagosians should expect as Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu Sets To Launch Lastmile buses next week:

 1. Increase In Transportation Cost:

Of course, transportation by these new set of buses might tend to get expensive not because it's a new system but because of the inflation in fuel price across the country and the cost of maintenance compared to that of a motorcycle.

 2. Unexpected Delays:

 An average Lagosian wakes up as early as 5 am in the morning so as to get prepared for work inorder to avoid unexpected delays due to traffic congestion.

Life was pretty much easier when Motorcycles were still in use because motorcycles can access narrow paths where cars and buses can't.

But now that they've been ruled out of the system, the delays are unavoidable for Lagosians now.

 3. The Social Distancing Rule Will Get Defiled:

Every Nigerian should note that Covid-19 is still out there and the risk of getting the virus is high if an individual chooses to board a bus instead of a motorcycle due to number of passengers the two transport means can convey at a time.
