The Lagos State Government, through LAGBUS and its franchisees, has declared that it will provide Free Bus Ride to Lagosians on Friday 25 December, to mark this Year’s Christmas celebration.
The move is aimed at promoting the use of public transportation, as well as reducing congestion on Lagos roads during the festivities.
The statement said that the free bus rides would cut across parts of the metropolis within the operational hours of 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. The free bus services would ensure that fewer vehicles were on the roads during the period.
He appealed to motorists not to drink and drive so as to prevent avoidable accidents which usually occurred during celebrations.
