“We are living from ‘hand to mouth,’ government should help us. We understand the concerns of the bus operators pertaining to increase in cost of diesel and maintenance of the buses. Lagos residents have continued to lament after the fee hike in BRT.
“We appeal that Ikorodu to TBS route be reviewed to N250 instead of N300,” she said.
A civil servant, Mr Kunle Aderogba, advised that transport fare should be subsidised by the government to alleviate the sufferings of the citizens.
“The transport fare of BRT bus is a solace to many low-income earners but now that has changed with the reviewed transport fares.
“For years, government has not reviewed the salaries of workers and it has taken a toll on our lifestyle as we have adjusted to our meagre income.
“We urge the government to consider the societal impact of the reviewed fares on the masses and emulate former Gov. Babatunde Fashola, who only reviewed BRT fares upward by N20,’’ he said.
