TOAN Takes Steps To Increase Safety In KEKES During The COVID-19 Pandemic

Due to the mandate given by the Federal Government to restrict movements and activities in Lagos, FCT, Ogun and a few other states, it has become abundantly clear that essential goods and workers in retail, distribution, manufacturing companies for food processing, petroleum, power generation and especially healthcare organisations will have to commute on a daily basis.

Following this, the masses have been seen opting for tricycles, popularly known as Keke, as the preferred means of transportation, thereby increasing its popularity in light of recent social distancing requirements. This comes as no surprise because the open-spaced design of tricycles allows for easier accessibility, and more air circulation when compared, especially to larger vehicles with small or closed windows. 

Recently, ridesharing companies circulated a newsletter that advised drivers to put down windows and put off air conditioning for cross-ventilation, a feature that is readily available with the tricycle. 

As such, for the safety of members and passengers, the Tricycle Owners Association of Nigeria (TOAN) has issued regulations to protect the lives of riders and passengers. One of such regulations indicates that; “All Keke riders are advised to not carry more than two passengers at any time.” This is to keep all persons, including the rider, at a safe distance from one another as advised by the World Health Organisation. 

Provided these and other guidelines such as hand washing, face masks, not touching the face and other precautionary measures are followed by both passengers and riders, the commercial tricycle appears to be one of the safest modes of public transportation amid the pandemic.

    2. Am telling you. If people can listen. It's good

  2. Tbh Keke is the safest. They need to bring that back. I agree

  3. No condition is permanent, thank God they're calling Keke Marwa back especially in Lagos

  4. It's good but trust the fare will be tripled

  5. This is good but will they listen? The keke riders will want to still perch a passenger beside them for that extra N100. I guess fares will be tripled now but still it's for our own good. If I cant afford it I'll just trekk lol

  6. This has been happening in Anambra since,T-fare doubled
