The Lagos State Government has revealed plans to phase out yellow buses popularly known as Danfo in accordance with its transportation masterplan of the state.
The state Commissioner for Transportation, Frederic Oladeinde, who disclosed this at a virtual forum on Thursday, February 4 said the danfo buses would be replaced by blue buses under the bus rapid transit (BRT) scheme because the yellow buses are not conducive for a mega city.
“We are reforming the bus sector and over time, Lagos will phase out the yellow buses because the yellow buses are not conducive for a mega city like Lagos. That is why we are coming with blue buses you see around,” Oladeinde said.
“We are inviting the private sector to participate in the provision of public transport services. We are also deploying technology just to ensure that we can up our game in terms of efficiency.”
