The Chairman of Lagos State Parks and Garages, Alhaji Musiliu Akinsanya (Aka MC Oluomo) has announced the introduction of the Bar Code to checkmate untoward activities among some commercial bus drivers and to ensure the safety of travellers
MC Oluomo, on Friday said the bar code system will improve the safety of commuters and discourage kidnapping.
“Our goal is to leverage technology to detect some criminal elements using our parks and garages to perpetrate crimes. We want to make our parks and garages as safe as possible. We will make them hell for anyone with criminal intention,” he said.
“The transport management in Lagos will not put the lives of Lagosians in jeopardy. The incidence of kidnapping is rampant in some parts of the country and it is the proactiveness of the stakeholders in the transport sector of Lagos that birthed the bar code introduction,” he said.
“The chairmen of each park and garage whose drivers are caught putting the lives and properties of Lagosians at risk will be severely dealt with.”
HOW IT WILL WORK
Speaking on how the bar code works, Isaiah Arowolo, an official of Dotmatech Technology Ltd, said over 20,000 vehicles have already been captured.

He said each vehicle will have a unique bar code that people would be expected to scan before boarding, adding that upon scanning, it will display the number of the vehicle, details of the driver, and the unit from which the vehicle is operating.
Arowolo said with such information, kidnapping and theft would be discouraged.
He added that the code would also help in the tracking of misplaced or forgotten items.

“We have generated the QR code sticker for the 20,000 buses registered and the number is increasing daily. How does it work? We have a unique QR code sticker which will be on each bus; the commuters will download the app from the Playstore or Apple iOS. When they scan the code on the bus, information will be given to them on that particular vehicle including its number plate and the name of the secretary of the branch of that park or garage. The reason for that is just for them to have the history of the car or vehicle they board in a month or in a week or daily so that they can fall back to it and after one month.”
Also speaking on how the Bar Code works, Lagos State Parks and Garages Secretary, Comrade Olayiwola Lemboye, said commuters would download an app and scan the bar code on buses to confirm if they are safe for boarding.
“Once you scan the bar code on any bus, it will bring out certain information about the park or garage for commuters to determine if the bus is safe for boarding or not. For those who usually forget their ‘loads’ in the bus, the code will help passengers recollect the vehicle’s number plate and trace it to the park or garage such vehicle operates from.
“We’re using this medium to urge the public to try as much as possible to key into this project because the bar code will assist in curbing the cases of kidnapping, theft and other societal vices people perpetrated with public buses. We are urging the public to just give us the benefit of doubt on this project and key into it. It is for the good of all,” Lemboye said.
