The Lagos Metropolitan Area Transport Authority (LAMATA) says the blue rail will resume passenger operations on Monday.

In a post on its official X account on Sunday, LAMATA released an updated timetable for the train services showing that the trips have been increased to 54.

According to the schedule, the earliest trip from Mile 2 to the Marina route is at 6.30 a.m. while the last trip is at 9.25 p.m., with stops at National Theatre, Iganmu, and Alaba.

On October 11, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, governor of Lagos, announced that the state would temporarily shut down the blue rail line from October 14.

Sanwo-Olu said the decision to temporarily shut down the metro line was to switch to electricity and ensure the safety of the passengers.

“To make this transition, we’ll need to shut down train services on Saturday, October 14 after the morning peak service and for the entire day on Sunday, October 15, for the switch to electricity,” the governor had said.

“This momentary pause is to ensure that your safety is our top priority.”

He added that there are plans to increase the services to 74 trips by the end of November.

The Blue rail line started operations on September 4, running 12 trips per day.
