Babajide Sanwo–Olu, the governor of Lagos, says the Blue rail line has transported over 75,000 people in over 350 trips since it started a month ago.
According to the governor, the 350 trips translate to over 75,000 passenger movements, adding that over 3.8 million Cowry cards, an electronic payment system, have been collected so far.
Sanwo-Olu flagged off the commercial operations of the rail infrastructure last month with about 800 passengers making the first train trip.
The governor informed that the state government plans to increase the frequency of the trains, so as to move more passengers.
“Dear Lagosians, the Blueline rail system commenced its commercial service exactly 1 month ago.
