During the visit, Dr. Amure provided a comprehensive briefing on LAMATA’s operational framework, collaborative approaches with stakeholders, and ongoing reform programs.

These initiatives include the Bus Reform Initiative (BRI) and the adoption of cleaner energy policies, with plans to integrate more electric vehicles and CNG buses into various bus routes across the state.

Furthermore, the delegation was given an insightful tour of LAMATA’s Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) infrastructure, which includes a dashboard displaying the real-time positions of all buses operating under the First and Last Mile scheme.

This study tour underscores the Federal Government’s commitment to revitalizing its Mass Transportation scheme as it seeks to leverage the experiences and best practices of successful transportation authorities like LAMATA.
