Pictures tell a story besides the pictures were taken strategically during the day when the road isn’t busy, why didn’t the photographer take such at night or early in the morning so the world can see the buses in motion.
Besides I live in Ikorodu and I’ve been plying the bus for over 2 years to work and you know what it’s better than taking any other form of transport which is more expensive and less spacious. Most people who work on the island or more than half of the commuters have cars but would rather rest and take the bus than drive.
I’m an accountant and I always measure something. So let’s do a little analysis.
You wait 2 hours in the Busstop for a Brt bus then spend an hour on the road with Full AC or entering normal yellow bus and spend 3 hours on the road including traffic and heat since it’s 4 per seat. Which is better??

They are actually under utilized. The roads are usually empty even in rush hour. Surprisingly, the new blue bus brought by Ambode are also now permitted to take the lane for some stupid agreement made with the BRT contract.

I just weak for Lagos.

The BRT lanes are not underutilized, they are very active.

What I know is if this buses are plying their regular routes. We can suspend using our cars and that alone will bury Lagos traffic forever

The issue is that blue brt buses are not owned by Lagos state. They are owned by private organization with the mandate of Lagos state government. The new Lagos bus service limited buses which are solely owned by Lagos state are not allowed to ply brt Lane due the agreement entered into between the private organization and Lagos state government. I think Lagos state government are still on the case to introduce these buses on ikorodu road but it will take time since the buses are not programmed to ply the route.

No wonder, they are private owned, that's why the buses are new and equipped with facilities that can make one comfortable. I always relax and close my eyes for a bit when I board those their BRT buses, its an awesome experience. No bus conductor with body odour or some fish seller carrying fish or one agbero shouting to collect levy. I knew Lagos state cannot endorse such buses that offer maximum comfort to the common man.

When you serve your design purpose, you're not underutilised!

This is a dumb thread. It is like saying "why are service lanes under utilized."

Lagos transportation issues are man made and self inflicted. Solutions are known and practiced worldwide. It is left for our leaders to exercise political will to tackle these issues.

More organised transporters needed to be allowed to ply those lanes, they're are grossly underutilised.
