The Lagos Metropolitan Area Transport Authority (LAMATA) has announced a hike in the fare price for the three operators under the public transport scheme of the Lagos state government.
Hence, thousands of commuters who use the BRT (Blue Bus) and LAGBUS (Red Bus) daily will pay more.
According to Dabiri, the current financial crunch which shut up the cost of operations by 110% necessitated the increment.
Under the price regime, the BRT (Blue bus), operated by Primero Transport Services, have increased fare from
Ikorodu to CMS is now N300 from 195.
N75 to N100 for Ikorodu-Mile 12 route,

The LAGBUS (red bus) also increased fare for the 60 routes they are plying across the state.
