Chairman of Lagos State Parks and Garages (LASPG), Alhaji Musiliu Akinsanya (MC Oluomo) has announced relief packages to cushion the petrol subsidy removal pain.
The packages, he said, cut across commercial bus drivers and passengers.
He said the tickets given to drivers at parks for N800 will now be sold for N600.
All bookings, he said, would have a 25 per cent reduction.
For passengers, Akinsanya said routes where transport fare is N500 have been reduced to N300 while those paying N200 for fare will now pay N150.
He added that commercial motorcycles (Okada riders) and tricycles (Keke Marwa) operators will give a 25 per cent reduction in the tickets bought from the union.
He announced a task force team that would monitor the implementation of the directives.
Akinsanya warned various parks and garages executives to ensure compliance, stating that sanctions would be meted on defaulters.
The task force will be led by all members of state executives, parks’ chairmen and elected union leaders.
