Bossbus, a Nigerian company, claims to provide commuters with a more economical, convenient, and dependable mobility experience by allowing customers to schedule many modes of transportation via a single app.
Bossbus, founded by Oluwatobi Johnson Fakayode in August, allows customers to plan a journey in a luxurious car, SUV, bus, or boat to numerous places, as well as interstate and intrastate transport and vehicle rental.
Many Nigerians complained that the costs of alternative ride-hailing platforms were too high, especially when they wanted to go from one location to another for a day or more, according to Fakayode.
“The vehicles used were also uncomfortable and poorly managed and only taxis were available on tech-enabled platforms like Uber and Bolt. We decided to solve this problem by liaising with owners and drivers of more comfortable vehicles to ensure commuters have access to better experiences,” he said.
“Bossbus was a bike-hailing platform alone but metamorphosed into a full vehicle charter, rental and e-hailing platform. The company is still working on its ride-hailing and pooling app, as well as its drivers’ app.”
Bossbus intends to become a one-stop shop for transportation by going beyond the taxi app and allowing users to book long-distance bus trips and even charter their own cars. To help it expand, the bootstrapped business has partnered with the government, corporate organizations, and the entertainment sector, and has already completed over 1,300 flights.
Bossbus is a Nigerian bus company that serves major cities such as Lagos, Ibadan, Port Harcourt, Abuja, Enugu, and Owerri. In the near future, the firm intends to expand to additional nations such as Ghana and the Ivory Coast.
