FCTA and private sector unveil affordable mass transit buses for Abuja residents 

The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA), in collaboration with the private sector, has rolled out a new fleet of mass transit buses designed to increase the availability of affordable transportation solutions for residents of the FCT. 

During the unveiling of the “TFA 360 Transportation System” in Abuja on Tuesday, Mr Ubokutom Nyah highlighted the FCTA’s commitment to fostering a conducive environment for private investments in the public transport sector. 

Mr Nyah, who serves as the Mandate Secretary for the Transportation Secretariat of the FCTA, mentioned that the FCT Minister, Mr Nyesom Wike, is dedicated to reinforcing collaborations with private stakeholders to offer a dependable, economical, safe, and secure mass transit solution within the territory. 

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reported that 14 high-capacity, air-conditioned buses were launched at the event, with more expected soon. Mr Nyah stated the FCTA seeks further private investment to improve transportation, aiming to provide FCT residents with more reliable, accessible, and affordable options.
