The National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), Lagos Chapter, has advised its members not to panic over the proposed ban on operations of yellow commercial buses.

The state Chairman of the union, Tajudeen Agbede, on Tuesday said that the union was discussing the proposed ban with the government, adding that the union was ready to cooperate with the government on its mega city project.

Agbede stated that the union is ready to change the colour of their buses and also comply with the directive to follow the service lanes.

According to him, the union members are also ready to refurbish their vehicles to attain mega city standards.

Lagos State Governor Akinwunmi Ambode had on 6 February announced a plan to stop operations of yellow commercial buses popularly known as ‘danfo’ for a more efficient, well-structured and world-class mass transport system.

Ambode assured that the new transport system would ease movement within the state and make Lagos cleaner without burdening the people in terms of taxes.
