Bus-hailing firm Plentywaka ventures into staff bus services in Nigeria

Plentywaka, the tech-driven premium bus-hailing service, has announced the launch of the “Plentywaka Staff Bus Solutions”. The exclusive service for corporate customers is meant to minimize employees’ risk of exposure to COVID-19 by providing a safer and more convenient means of travel to and from work, post-lockdown.

With all buses cleaned and fumigated, the Plentywaka Staff Bus Solutions will deliver a service in line with the state government’s directives, enabling the vital Lagos workforce to safely return to full capacity. The new service allows companies to either lease buses directly from Plentywaka or have their staff picked up and dropped off from designated points. Both options include a driver approved by Plentywaka as well as access via mobile to a dashboard for real-time monitoring and data collection.

Speaking on the launch of the Staff Bus Solutions, Plentywaka’s MD and co-founder, Johnny Enagwolor, said: “Whilst the easing of the lockdown provides some assurance, we still need to remain vigilant and take the necessary precautions to avoid community spread of the virus. Through the launch of the Plentywaka Staff Bus Solutions, we are offering reassurances for business owners and staff anxious about traveling, and through providing a safer alternative, they can get back to achieving their 2020 plans.”

After a brief hiatus due to COVID-19, Plentywaka resumed its services on May 5 and are seeking to build on their previous success. From Monday 18th May, the platform will be rolling out their buses on two new routes, boosting their current service from 5 routes to 7. As part of the new launch, Plentywaka is offering new and existing users free rides on the new routes for a week via their app. The new offer is available from May 18 to 23, 2020.

Enagwolor added: “Similar to most businesses, COVID-19 created a major hurdle for us but this is the time to be dynamic in meeting customers’ needs, especially those around safety. Now more than ever, commuters across Lagos need transport operators that take their wellbeing seriously and that’s why we’re expanding our service. We’ve always had a strong track record on safety and now is the best time to build on this.”

PlentyWaka is a bus sharing solution that offers commuters convenience, safety and comfort in their daily rides. The platform aims to provide a convenient and effective driving experience for commuters.
