Ogun Govt. to build CNG bus stations in Ibafo, Mowe, others 




The Ogun State Government has revealed its plans to commence the construction of bus stations for the take-off of the Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) Mass Transit scheme along the Lagos-Ibadan expressway axis.  

The Ogun State Commissioner for Transportation, Engr Dairo Olugbenga, disclosed this while speaking on a radio programme in Abeokuta, on Thursday, said the stations are to be sited within the Mowe, Ibafo Arepo, and Berger axis of the Lagos-Ibadan expressway. 

The commissioner noted that construction of the CNG bus stations along the ever-busy expressway will commence soon as necessary implementation frameworks have been put in place. 

According to Olugbenga, the construction of the CNG bus stations would help reduce environmental pollution by reducing emissions and promoting a cleaner and safer environment in the state. 

The commissioner disclosed that the CNG-powered mass transit buses would be deployed to the Lagos-Ibadan expressway corridor for cheaper and safer movement in advance of the construction of the bus stations. 

Furthermore, Olugbenga highlighted infrastructure, law compliance, operation, and price control as the key elements that control the process of operating the urban transportation system in Ogun State.
