Lagos state to replace Okada and tricycle from July


The Lagos State Government is set to replace Okada and tricycle from July.

The state government will introduce what is described as the First Mile and Last Mile (FMLM) mobility solution.

Frederick Oladeinde, Transportation Commissioner said while speaking at the 2020 ministerial press briefing at the JJT Park, Alausa, Ikeja yesterday.

“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 said.

“We have identified 285 last-mile routes within the seven bus reform initiative zones across Lagos. We have developed bus specifications and shared the same with potential bus manufacturers. We expect these to be rolled out in the next two months.”

According to the commissioner, Okada and tricycle are not part of the Lagos state’s transport architecture.
