Every day in Lagos, you are either stuck in traffic or trying to avoid it. Both situations come at a cost. For most of the history of Nigeria’s biggest city, its physical expansion has grown faster than available roads, rails, ferries, and buses. Such a mismatch is the cause of its inefficient transport system, and has socioeconomic costs for individuals, businesses, and the city.
