The Primero Transport Services Ltd., Operator of BRT in Lagos State, has announced resumption of services on Ikorodu-TBS from Friday, 48 hours after suspending operations on the routes over operational challenges.

Mutiu Yekeen, Head, Corporate Communications of the firm, confirmed the resumption in a statement on Thursday in Lagos.

Yekeen said: “We use this medium to inform the general public that we will resume full operations on Ikorodu to TBS routes effective tomorrow, Friday, April, 2.

“We are glad to inform our esteemed commuters that all operational issues have been resolved and we call on all to join the Primero BRT service at all bus shelters. It was due to forces beyond our control.

“We will commence full operations across our designated routes and ensure that commuters’ satisfactions are given priority.

“We sincerely appreciate commuters’ patience during the period and we look forward to providing our usual safe, affordable and convenient services to residents 24 hours, every week.”
