Lagos Bus Rapid Transit

Good Practices SSATP Discussion Paper August 31, 2009 Urban Access & Mobility
Lagos Bus Rapid Transit

This document describes how the first bus rapid transit system based on the well known good practice examples of Columbia and Brazil, adapted to the local context of Lagos, was implemented. It shows the strategic role of transport in a megacity like Lagos but also and maybe more importantly, the critical role of commitment and leadership at the highest levels of government for such a project to succeed. "Launched in March 2008, the new BRT system provided Lagos commuters with a clean, affordable and reliable means of getting around the city".
