Quite interesting. I applaud this innovation. It should go to full-scale implementation, coupled with intra-city railway and more flyovers. Lagos traffic is terrible. I almost missed my flight three weeks ago because of traffic along Ikeja axis.

I hope governors in the Niger delta region is watching the bold steps that was taken by the Lagos state government in partnership with a foreign company in the USA.

It is a shame that rickety boats is being used to ferry commuters in most riverine communities in Delta state, Bayelsa state, Rivers state etc

If only the government could give good support to local businesses as they do with their foreign counterparts.

This is very good. The future is tech.

Testing! Testing!!

A step in the right direction
I do hope fares are moderate enough to appeal to a larger populace

It would go a long way to curbing much traffic

The process seems complicated though.
Must a passenger board an UberX to the jetty?
