BRT commuters on Ikorodu-CMS route to enjoy free wifi
As part of the expected additional value added service from the operators of Lagos BRT transport system, Primero Transport Services Ltd, commuters would soon begin to enjoy free internet services on board of the buses.
Primero, which operates on the Ikorodu-Lagos BRT corridor with more than 450 air-conditioned buses, is set to include the free internet access for the commuters to enable them have ease of doing business while in transit.
According to the Managing Director of Primero, Fola Tinubu, plans are also now being concluded to introduce an e-ticketing system in the company’s operations to create convenience for customers. This will enable Primero’s customers purchase tickets online thereby reducing complaints arising from interface with ticket sellers.
In his words, “this service will be at no cost to the passengers. It is the kind thing you experience in some developed economies around the world, and we believe Primero can pioneer it in Lagos.”
He added that “our plan is also to reduce interface with the ticket sellers as much as possible. I want to see a situation where 90 to 95 percent of passengers can buy their tickets online. What this will do is that it will reduce the queues at the bus stops.”
Meanwhile, Primero is currently planning a partnership with a foreign firm to establish vehicle assembling plant in Ibadan, Oyo State by November this year.
