Abuja To Reorganize Taxi Ranks, Introduce CNG Buses For Mass Transit



The Directorate of Road Traffic Services (DRTS) in Abuja, led by Dr. Abdulateef Bello, has announced significant developments aimed at reorganizing the city’s transportation system. Speaking at a stakeholders’ engagement meeting, Dr. Bello disclosed plans to commence the recovery of taxi ranks that were previously issued quit notices within the capital city.

The objective is to reorganize the ranks for licensed operators, part of a broader effort to standardize the transportation system in Abuja. Dr. Bello emphasized the necessity of standardizing the transportation system in the fast-evolving city, highlighting the administration’s commitment to meeting the needs of all citizens. He further revealed that Abuja is set to welcome buses powered by Compressed Natural Gas (CNG), offering a sustainable solution for mass transit in the city. The introduction of CNG-powered buses is poised to address the challenges posed by rickety vehicles and taxis, which have been a source of nuisance on Abuja’s roads.

Dr. Abubakar Sadiq, Chairman of RTEIN Mass Transit, welcomed the new policy while urging the administration to ensure that critical players in the transportation sector receive adequate consideration. Okorie Victor, Chairman of the Self Employed Commercial Drivers Association (SECDAN), echoed the importance of aggressive sensitization efforts to ensure that all stakeholders fully comprehend the evolving transportation policies.

These developments will signify a pivotal moment in Abuja’s transportation landscape, reflecting a concerted effort to enhance efficiency, safety, and environmental sustainability. As the city’s infrastructure continues to evolve, the proactive measures taken by the DRTS herald a new era of organized and sustainable transportation for the capital.
