The Water Bus Could Improve Transportation in Lagos and Other Coastal cities
This amphibious bus also known as the water bus can travel in water as well as roads. It was tested in Scotland in 2010 and for a city like Lagos with its lagoons, largely surrounded by the sea and ocean is a very attractive prospect.
Imagine boarding a water bus at Iyana Oworo to get to Victoria Island or Lekki to beat early morning traffic or residing in Badagry and working in Ikoyi with the water bus as your means of transportation.
I suggest that Lagos State Government and others in Nigeria should study this and add it to our transportation mix.
