Kano state government has announced plans  to float a Mass Transit Service with 200 buses in the metropolitan area as part of effort to create an integrated transport system for the emerging megacity.

The state commissioner for Information, Malam Muhammad Garba said in a statement that Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje had directed the engagement of private investors and the state Transport Authority (KASTA) for the immediate supply of 100 buses for the commencement of the first phase of the programme before the end of the year.

He said the measure is aimed at lessening the suffering of commuters in the absence of a strong private transport system as well as check the excesses of tricycle operators whose reckless form of driving has become a nuisance in traffic management and control.
