    Lagos Ride is a smart mobility solution that allows users to book and share the cost of a ride from their preferred pickup to drop off locations respectively. It will link users up based on their preferred pick and drop off points, each not more than 1km apart respectively, and a pick-up time not more than 5 minutes apart.

    We believe this service will contribute to a reduction in traffic congestion in Lagos as it will encourage ride sharing and therefore reduce the frequency of single-occupancy driving.
    This scheme was set up as part of ongoing efforts of the Lagos state government to optimize the transit experience of Lagosians.

    The state through its investment company, Ibile Holdings intervened in the acquisition of 1,000 brand new cars to be used on the LagosRide platform. The cars would be made available to interested partners/drivers after a down payment of 20% has been made and balance payment will be deducted from daily fares/earnings over a maximum period of 4 years.

    Why is LagRide a Better Option

    President Muhammadu Buhari has commiserated with the families of three University of Port Harcourt students reportedly murdered by their kidnappers and their bodies buried in a shallow grave in April.

    He said the killers must be apprehended and made to face the wrath of the law.

    The President also extended condolences to the university authorities and the Rivers State Government over the unfortunate incident.

    Describing the tragic occurrence as “sad and heinous,” Buhari regretted that the “evil perpetrators have cut short the prospectively bright journey of these youths.”

    He prayed that God would comfort all those who mourned these young students, and grant their souls eternal rest.

    Buhari, while noting that the Nigerian Police Anti-Kidnapping Unit has apprehended one of the suspected perpetrators, further directed the Police Authorities to intensify search for the remaining suspects and bring them to justice.

    According to the President, “This administration will continue to equip the law enforcement and security agencies to bring to an end the evil activities of kidnappers in the country.”
