This announcement was made via a post on X this Saturday, after Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu's declaration on August 2, 2023, regarding the substantial reduction in transportation fares for all Bus Rapid Transport (BRT) routes.
In their official statement, LAMATA is strongly urging commuters to make necessary preparations in advance of the impending deadline this Sunday, as BRT fares are set to return to their regular rates, as indicated by the governor's earlier directive.
The statement reads: “The 50% rebate in transport fare in the regulated transport system in Lagos ends on Sunday, a statement by the Lagos Metropolitan Area Transport Authority has said.
“The 50% fare rebate was announced by Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu on August 2, 2023.
“The public is hereby informed that from Monday, November 6, 2023, transport fare will return to the pre-2nd August 2023 rate.”
It also announced that a new off-peak fare will be introduced to give those travelling outside the early morning peak a form of rebate on the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) and Blue Line train.
