Good Move! See How People Now Sit In Buses - one year ago
Transporters in Benin City, the Edo State Capital encourages social distancing in their bid to curb the spread of the dreadful COVID-19 pandemic. This period has really shown that people of Edo State value lives over money as they adopt a new sitting arrangement for long-distance travel within the state. From Benin-City, the Capital to other parts of the state the sitting arrangement remains two persons per row and one at the front seat near the driver. Nevertheless, prices increased by 40 percent i.e if one paid 1000 naira from Benin City to Uromi, or Auchi now you pay #1,400. A driver, when asked about the added price, made it clear that it’s nothing to raise alarms about as the “extra” went to security agencies on the highway ( the police and FRSC) for their tireless efforts in this period of uncertainty. “Simply telling them to keep up the good work. Nothing more nothing less” he concluded A very welcome development if you ask me.
