How can I get around in Lagos?

The most reliable, clean, and safe way to get around is by Uber or by taxi—but the latter aren’t cheap. Many visitors get a pre-arranged driver. Other options are the danfo: the ubiquitous black-and-yellow Volkswagen buses that cover nearly the entire city. Typically, they seat 16–22 people—or however many the driver wants to pack in. There is also the local version of the tuk-tuk, the keke marwa—the rickshaws named after Colonel Buba Marwa, a former state governor who introduced them to Lagos roads. But you should know that they are probably the most reviled vehicles on Lagos roads. Other drivers hate them because they drive too slowly and often hit other cars as they slip between traffic.
