CCTV buses will replace danfos, says Lagos state government
According to punch.ng,The Lagos State Government said on Tuesday that buses with Closed Circuit Television cameras would replace yellow buses (danfo) in the state, adding that the government would not take jobs out of the hands of commercial bus drivers. The Acting Commissioner for Transportation, Anofiu Elegushi, stated this at the inauguration of the newly upgraded Tafawa Balewa Square Bus Terminal on Lagos Island. He added that the state government planned to build several bus terminals across the state to meet the transport demand. Elegushi explained that the government wanted to boost the transport system with new buses, adding that many yellow commercial buses were not roadworthy. He said, “Most of the yellow buses have been in use for over 20 years. So, it is not convenient anymore for passengers. “What we are trying to do is to bring new buses that will have CCTV cameras, phone charging points and other facilities. The yellow buses drivers are still going to be the CCTV bus drivers. “We are also working on a financial model that we will use to transfer the vehicles to the operators.” On the new TBS Bus Terminal, Elegushi sought the collaboration of stakeholders in the maintenance of the facility. He said the government was keen on changing the face of transport by upgrading transport facilities. The Chairman, House Committee on Transportation, Fatai Adebola, commended Governor Akinwunmi Ambode-led executive and urged the people to protect the project
