Hey guys, the long-awaited revamped Danfo buses proposed by the Lagos government earlier in February have arrived and they are actually impressive at first sight. Vanguard Allure caught a first glimpse of the arrival. This is in a bid to change the state of modern transportation in Lagos. Already, I would say that the old and rickety yellow buses are fast becoming or are now a menace to the city.
It's been noted that some of the buses are waiting to be cleared at the port.
The governor of Lagos, Akinwumi Ambode spoke on the Danfo issue:
“When I wake up in the morning and see all these yellow buses and see Okada and all kinds of tricycles and then we claim we are a mega city, that is not true and we must first acknowledge that that is a faulty connectivity that we are running. Having accepted that, we have to look for the solution and that is why we want to banish yellow buses this year.”
The buses are going to change the way inner-city transportation runs, with affordability, durability and ease of access. We expect that they'd be air-conditioned too!
