The Lokoja Bus Mega Terminal

Lokoja Bus Mega Terminal was declared the biggest bus terminal in West Africa because it has the capacity to retain over 500 vehicles at a time.

Bus parks in Lokoja, Kogi State Capital, had no facilities for passenger comfort or convenience (waiting areas, loading bays, rest rooms, etc.).

This poses safety and security risks to the general public. The parks were an eyesore, with their activities spilling onto the roads and causing traffic congestion around Lokoja town.

To provide world-class transport facilities for the people of Kogi State and ensure that transport activities could be conducted in a safe and secure environment, the government paid contractors to build the Lokoja Mega Terminal.

Facilities at the Lokoja bus terminal include

Terminal Building
Food Court
ATM Gallery
Loading Bays
Security Posts
Gate Houses
Drivers’ Lounge
Rest-rooms
Mechanical Workshop
Generator/power house, and a lot more.

The terminal provides world-class transportation services to the residents and visitors to Lokoja, who would be able to conduct their transportation activities in a safe and secure environment with purpose-built infrastructure.

The terminal was completed in 2015 and is functional to date.
