Uber, Bolt,& Others To Pay a levy Of N20/Trip As Road Improvement Fund – FG

Starting from August 27, Lagos State Government has said that all ride-hailing operators will pay a levy of N20 known as road improvement fund, on each trip their drivers make in a day.

In a statement disclosed on Friday and signed by  Gboyega Akosile, Chief Press Secretary to the Governor and entitled ‘Lagos govt, e-hailing operators agree on new regulations’.

According to the statement, the enforcement of the new regulations will now take off from August 27, 2020 instead August 20 initially announced by the government.

“This implies that each e-hailing firm will now pay N8m per 1,000 cars fresh licencing and renewal, instead of N10m initially announced,”

Dr Frederic Oladehinde, Commissioner for Transportation said:

“We also discussed the issue of service tax, which was initially defined as 10 per cent charge. We have come to resolution that the levy will become a flat fee of N20 per trip. We no longer call it service tax; we now call it Road Improvement Fund, which will be levied per trip,” 

He added that the state government had granted all drivers on the e-hailing platforms an extension of 90 days to perfect all documents and licences, required for operation, including driver’s licence and Lagos State Residents Registration Agency cards.
