Lagos BRT


Working alongside the World Bank and Lagos Area Metropolitan Transit Authority (LAMATA) we introduced Africa's first BRT system, in Lagos Nigeria.

In this mega-city with 19 million people it was clear that to effectively get people to where they wanted to go a mass rapid transit system was needed. We carried out the pre-feasibility study and detailed design for the BRT line, working intensively with the client team to oversee implementation.

The BRT line became operational in October 2007 just 11 months after a decision to implement.  Within a month it was carrying over 200,000 people each day - putting it among the top-ten busiest BRT routes in the world at the time.

Since then, we have continued to work with LAMATA and other agencies expand the BRT network and improve the overall public transport system.
