No transporter in Lagos State is participating in the ongoing nationwide labour-led protest.
Chairman of Lagos State Parks and Garages, LASPG, Musiliu Akinsanya, popularly called, MC Oluomo, who disclosed this, assured that the cut in fares of commercial bus drivers will commence on Wednesday, as ordered by Governor Bababjide Sanwo-Olu.
He said the tickets given to drivers at parks for N800 will now sell N600, and that all bookings would have 25 per cent reduction.
Akinsanya said routes where transport fare is N500 has been reduced to N300, while those paying N200 for fare will now pay N150.
According to him, commercial motorcycles (Okada riders) and tricycles (Keke Marwa) operators will reduce the ticket fees by 25 per cent.
MC Oluomo said a task force team to monitor the implementation has been set up, and warned various parks and garages’ executives to ensure compliance, stating that sanction would be meted on defaulters.
“The task force will be led by all members of state executives, parks’ chairmen and selected union leaders,” said.
Oluomo said that the agency would do all it could not to inconvenience the masses, hence the timely intervention.
