From the month of July, Lagos State Government will introduce what it describes as First Mile and Last Mile (FMLM) mobility solution to replace banned Okada and tricycle.
This was made known by the Commissioner for Transportation, Frederick Oladeinde on Wednesday at the 2020 ministerial press briefing at the JJT Park, Alausa, Ikeja.
The commissioner said: “Following the restriction of motorcycles and tricycles for commuter operations in some areas in the metropolis, the government is working on implementing a First Mile and Last Mile (FMLM) mobility solution.”
He explained that Okada and tricycle are not part of the state’s transport architecture, adding that they are constituting nuisance on the roads and responsible for the high rate of accidents and crimes.
“We have identified 285 last mile routes within the seven bus reform initiative zones across Lagos. We have developed bus specifications and shared same with potential bus manufacturers. We expect these to be rolled out in the next two months,” Oladeinde said.’
