LASG Issues Registration Ultimatum To Danfo/Korope Drivers

The Lagos State Government has issued a two-week registration notice to all public transport drivers (Korope/Danfo bus drivers), as it releases the restructuring plans to improve commuting experience.

Speaking at a meeting with bus operators and Union leaders in the State, the Special Adviser to the Governor on Transportation, Sola Giwa, said the move aligns with the Strategic Transportation Master Plan for Lagos State.

Giwa described the current state of bus operations on the corridor as chaotic hence, the need for collaboration to successfully regulate and integrate the informal transport sector into the State’s Bus Reform Initiative using the Lekki/Epe corridor as a pilot test.

The special adviser also warned that any operator who contravenes the regulations that will be implemented, will be fined and will forfeit their vehicles if they ignore the notice of their fines. He declared that the state government will not accommodate willful disregard of its existing Transport Sector Reform Law.
