The just commisioned Ibadan Bus terminals has reportedly begun operations and listed out the routes to be plied within Ibadan metropolis.

The Oyo State Joint Task Force of the Bus Terminals revealed this on a statement on Tuesday 10th May 2022. According to the statement, the IBT-JTF comprising OYRTMA, The SRS (Police), Amotekun Corps, Executive Assistant on Security to the Governor, and other relevant stakeholders, the Executive Chairman of OYRTMA who doubles as Co-Chair of the IBT-JTF, Mogaji Akin Fagbemi Ph.D alongside the E.A Security to the Governor, revealed that the Omititun buses would convey passengers from the Ojoo Terminus to Challenge Terminus and vice-versa on a daily basis.

In his words, “While we commend the Oyo State Government under the progressive leadership of His Excellency the Executive Governor, Engr. Seyi Makinde FNSE for the laudable project of providing this luxurious, affordable and accessible transportation means and facilities, it is expedient we intimate members of the motoring public and commuters alike on the modus-operandi, routes and designated bus-stops approved for the Omititun Buses. As you may be aware, His Excellency the Executive Governor has commissioned the Ojoo and Challenge Bus Terminal while that of Iwo-Road and New-Ife Road will soon be completed and commissioned. As at now, the Omititun Buses would take off from the Ojoo terminal and have a stop at University of Ibadan main gate where it can drop and pick passengers then to Sango or Bodija Bus Stop from where it will head to Beere, then Oja’ba to Molete and finally terminate the trip at the Challenge Bus Terminal, Challenge, Ibadan.

Additionally, the Buses would also take off from the Challenge Terminal and follow the same routes aforementioned in reverse order and then terminate the trip at the Ojoo bus-terminal”, Dr. Fagbemi explained.

Akin Fagbemi also stated that the IBT-JTF has commenced eliminating all road obstructions that may obstruct the smooth operation of the Omititun Buses. “Today, the IBT-JTF began removing blockades and encumbrances that could prevent the free movement of these lengthy buses at the designated bus stop in a deliberate and coordinated effort.”

As a result, we want residents, particularly traders and commercial taxi drivers, to completely work with us to guarantee that the buses run smoothly by refraining from displaying their wares along road corridors and designated bus stops. Dr. Fagbemi stated, “Any defaulter will be detained and prosecuted in compliance with the existing road traffic regulations of Oyo State.”

Meanwhile, in another development, the Authority explains that all Intra-city taxis (Micra, Tricycles and Motorcycles) and private vehicles are to utilize the newly constructed car park at the defunct MRS-filling station at Challenge while the Inter-State vehicles are to use the newly commissioned Bus Terminal at Challenge, Ibadan.

The Authority added that it has strategically positioned her men and officers at the designated spots across Ibadan metropolis to educate motorists, enforce compliance and arrest defaulters.

The IBT-JTF notes that compliance with this outlined procedures would not only ease traffic congestion in the State Capital, it would also help to boost economic activities, encourage tourist attraction and create jobs for thousands of Oyo State citizens.
