Lagos set to Launch health friendly bike share scheme.

Lagos State Government through the Office of Public-Private Partnerships (OPPP) in conjunction with Messrs Awabike Ltd, is set to pilot an environmentally/health-friendly non-motorised transport initiative tagged “Bike Share Scheme”, with Alausa Secretariat being one of the proposed pilot locations.

According to a statement by the Director-General, Mr Ope George at the PPP office in Lagos, the project entails a service in which bikes are made available for shared use to individuals on a short term basis for a token fee without incurring the costs and responsibilities associated with ownership.

He said: “Urbanisation has reached an unprecedented advanced stage in Lagos State, leading to traffic congestion; hence; there is a need to work out modalities of easing traffic in the metropolis.”

The director-general said the introduction of the Bike Share Scheme is in line with Lagos State Government’s T.H.E.M.E.S agenda to achieve a transport scheme that is environmentally friendly and affordable to road users.

The Bike Share Scheme George said, would reduce carbon emission and provide a good form of body exercise thereby promoting fitness, while also improving wellness and stimulating good health and longevity for users
