The role of tech-driven innovation is in providing solutions to everyday challenges. One peculiar challenge in Lagos state is the uneasiness in transportation.
Just in September 2019, a bus-hailing ride launched in the Nigerian market with Lagos as its first location and when it appeared as if the solution will have no headway, it has yet recorded a milestone.
Plentywaka, the technology-driven premium bus-hailing service, is proving just how successful solution-based innovation can be, by announcing a remarkable 100,000 journeys completed in just its first 6 months.
The fast-growing company that operates in Lagos currently provides its commuters with 7 routes in comfort, convenience, and safety.
The popular bus-hailing service, which is now averaging 1500 journeys a day provides a hassle-free alternative to an otherwise chaotic and expensive commute.
Plentywaka’s scheduled ride facility is the appealing appeasement for the busy Lagosians struggling to get from Bus-Stop A to Bus-Stop B without the worries of insecurity or cramped and unkempt vehicles.
By using the easily downloadable app a seat can be secured on one of the Plentywaka vehicles in seconds.
Since its launch in September 2019, Plentywaka has seen significant growth throughout the business with the number of vehicles up by 50%, daily riders increased by 50.2%, app downloads rising to 61.9% and overall employment within Plentywaka up by 400%.
Johnny Enagwolor, the Managing Director and Co-Founder of Plentywaka, had this to say, “Reaching 100,000 journeys in our 6 months is a milestone the entire team at Plentywaka is proud of.
Our growth is definitely a combined reflection of the extremely high demand for transport in Lagos and the bus-hailing service we provide commuters, which is a bit of respite in the bustling city.
But there is more work to do and we are not relenting on our efforts to scale our operations while getting better at our service delivery.
Also, the more people we have registering for our Plentywaka Vehicle Partnership for free, the more we can also alleviate the strain of mobility in the city – transport should really be the least of people’s worries when they are trying to get to work or school.”
