The Lagos State Government, through LAGBUS and its Franchises, will provide free bus rides to Lagosians on Friday 25 December, 2015, to commemorate this year’s Christmas celebration.
This move is aimed at promoting the use of public transportation, as well as reducing congestion on Lagos roads during the festivities.
According to the release signed by the Managing Director of LAGBUS, Mr. Idowu Oguntona, the Free Bus ride will be provided on all LAGBUS routes across the metropolis within normal operational hours (6:00a.m – 10:00p.m) on Friday 25 December, 2015.
While imploring Lagosians to take the opportunity of the free bus service provided by the State Government, Oguntona appealed to motorists not to drink and drive so as to prevent avoidable accidents during festivities.
He however thanked all Lagosians for their patronage during the year and wished them a Merry Christmas.
