The public transport system of Lagos, Nigeria consists of a Bus Rapid Transit system (existing) and a rail transit system (currently under construction).

The rail mass transit system of Lagos will have two lines:

The Blue Line and the Red Line will begin on a shared alignment on Lagos Island, continuing on a new bridge connecting the island to the mainland until the corridors split at Iddo. The shared alignment will have three stations.

The Blue Line: Most of the line is being developed in conjunction with the Badagry Expressway Project (the expressway is a toll road running from Lagos to Badagry). The line runs on an exclusive right-of-way in the middle of the expressway. Running west to Okokomaiko, the Blue Line has 10 stations.

The Red Line: The Red Line is being developed on a north-south axis through some of the most densely-populated areas of the city. Most of the line utilises the existing Nigerian Railways Corporation (NRC) corridor. The line runs north to Agbado and has 10 stations. There will also be a single-track link to Murtala Mohammed Airport (its international and domestic terminals) branching out from Ikeja.

I doubt they could make the subway cars they got from the TTC run on a monorail guideway without some extensive work which would defeat the purpose of getting second-hand cars. It looks like it'll simply be an elevated rail line, probably due to the geography and likely the costs of tunelling.

Actually, a majority of the two rail lines will be at-grade, with some elevated portions near/at the shared alignment.

That's usually the case with the outer reaches of a line. I think the earlier photos caused some confusion for ssiguy. The inner/shared segment is on Lagos' equivalent of Manhattan. Space is at a premium and the tidal marshes surrounding the island necessitate the structure be above ground, especially when reaching the mainland. It would probably be more costly to tunnel anyway, something they are probably keenly aware of and want to avoid.

TTC cars are to be subjected to major retrofit.

It is vaguely relevant given that there was to be a deal between Toronto and Lagos for the use of old TTC metro cars.

The logo resembles a snail -- hopefully the trains will run faster...
