Lagos Bus Service Deploys "Cowry Cards", Gives Out 20,000 Cards by Lanrelagboi: 4:56pm On Mar 23
LBSL COMMENCES DEPLOYMENT OF COWRY CARDS, GIVES OUT 20,000 FREE IN PROMO

The Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer, Lagos Bus Services Limited (LBSL), Mr. Idowu Oguntona, has stated that the company commenced deployment of the long-awaited contactless payment card called Cowry Card from Monday, 22nd March, 2021.

Oguntona, who disclosed this in a release issued on Monday, said in appreciating the trust and support of the masses for its operations, the company has initiated a promotion that will reward customers with 20,000 Free Cowry Cards across its approved stations and routes.

According to him, the Cowry Card recently introduced by the Lagos Metropolitan Transport Authority (LAMATA) is designed to ease the process of payment and making daily commuting pleasurable and stress-free, just with a tap of the card.

“All you have to do is ‘Tap-In’ at the beginning of your journey and ‘Tap-Out’ when alighting from the bus. I will implore our teeming customers to visit our stations, register, get their cards and start using it immediately", Oguntona explained.

While noting that the new mode of payment is in tandem with what is in operational in other smart cities, the Managing Director declared that the move is to ensure safe, fast and secured transportation across the metropolis.

Oguntona added that the use of cowry card becomes necessary considering the population density of Lagos State which requires an effective transportation system.

He promised that LBSL will continuously provide a unique commuting experience to its teeming customers at affordable fares and appealed to Lagosians to take the advantage of the opportunity provided by the present administration to reduce traffic congestion in Lagos State in line with the T.H.E.M.E.S. agenda.

The Managing Director also encouraged Lagosians to imbibe the culture of using public bus transit to eliminate unnecessary traffic gridlock on roads as well as reduce stress and cost of maintaining their vehicles.

What are this people feeling like sef, quoting me and telling me Lagos is better than every state in the East
Go to the East and see many beautiful building and projects
Do I need to tell you Enugu, Owerri and many other eastern cities are far beautiful than Lagos
If not that the government is biased and their hatred towards us, the East should be the economic capital of Nigeria
But your hatred towards us won’t let you see that

This is a good development that needs to be sustained, we thought BRT was good until the better came, just tap and go wink. Do you need powerbank for laptop, over ten hours guaranteed and twenty hours possible. Increase your productivity and work when you like. Don't get mistaken for a Yahoo boy because of your generator noise

Tinubu is a problem to humanity. His rats would start cussing now. just the way Buhari's rat cursed and fumed. 6years later, Buhari is now the most useless president on planet Earth.

I am currently inside a brt bus as I type this.

In recent years, Brt is the only thing I have benefited from Lagos state government. However, more dedicated routes needs to be created for the brt buses to further avoid traffic.

Just before boarding this bus, I still saw LBSL staffs selling these tickets for #200, same with yesterday.

I hope this is looked into.

They should make the Cards free, it shouldn't cost them anything.

Long coming. Welcome development


Lagos keeps starting PACE.

Yoruba to the world

God bless Bola Ahmed Tinubu for laying down a structure for New Lagos and seeing to it being a realisation.

I don't joke with my ancestors, in as much they could have done more but I'll still praise them for what they do. It's my responsibility to pick up from where they stopped and improve. They're human and not perfect.
