Oyo plans dedicated lane for mass transit buses

The Oyo State mass transit scheme, Pacesetter Transport, says there is a plan to create a dedicated lane for the state’s high capacity transport buses with the aim of putting an end to the constant collision of the buses with other vehicles on the road.
The state’s 90-seater buses currently share the same roads and bus stops with other smaller commuter buses and commercial motorcycles.
But the General Manager of Pacesetter Transport, Mr. Wole Akinyele, said that the dedicated lane proposal was already with the state government and the state House of Assembly for approval.
He spoke in Ibadan on Tuesday at a sensitisation programme to educate transport stakeholders on the need to respect the rights of all road users.

The police, Federal Road Safety Corps and the Vehicle Inspection Office collaborated with Pacesetter Transport to organise the programme.
Akinyele said, “The mass transit scheme, which is hugely subsidised, has operated for two years. The next phase is the creation of the Lagos prototype lane for our buses.”
