Note that, commuting via roads from CMS bus-stop – the location of the jetty – to some of the aforementioned locations at certain time of the day can take up to 2 to 4 hours – no thanks to the supremely notorious Lagos traffic!

Such is the convenience of the inland waterways transport system.
Now here is what is baffling:
Lagos state – a state with a significant presence of waterways that has the potential to significantly decongest the over-crowded roads – isn’t it curious that this means of transportation is the least utilized and promoted?
