The Lagos state governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode recently unveiled the Lagos Bus Reform Initiative to revamp the state’s public transportation.

According to Ambode, the Bus Reform Initiative is a three-year plan aimed at introducing over 5000 air-conditioned buses to replace the yellow commercial buses, popularly called Danfo, which according to him, was no longer befitting for the State’s mega city status.

“We decided that the best thing is to allow the yellow buses go and so the Bus Reform Initiative itself is a three-year plan of 2017 to 2019 in which it intends to bring in new buses of 5,000 units in the three-year plan.

A batch of blue buses have arrived. The buses were made by a Chinese firm and they made cars and buses for auto firms and industries. These buses are meant to take about 36 passengers at a go.
