Lagos State Government to discontinue the use of ‘Danfo’ buses
The Lagos State Government has announced it plans to discontinue the use of yellow buses, popularly known as ‘Danfo’ following its transportation master plan of the state.
Frederic Oladeinde, the transportation commissioner, made this known in a virtual forum titled ‘Transport and traffic conference’ on Thursday, stating that the busses would be replaced by blue buses.
He said, “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.”
“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.”
