One year after launching in Nigeria, the leading online bus ticketing and booking company, QuickBus celebrates her one year anniversary.
In a country like Nigeria where the total number of people who took plane trips from Nigeria’s busiest airport in 2020 was less than 5% of the total population, the bulk of the population still relies on road transport to get to their destinations within the country.
This means that 80–90% of the population takes road trips and many of these trips happen in different spaces and across various sectors.
Oluwapelumi Oyetimein, Global Marketing Lead at QuickBus said, “The past year has been one of constant growth, evolving to being supply-led, taking learnings and lessons in our stride as we strive to tame an albeit chaotic industry on the continent starting from Nigeria. With our great team, there is no doubt that we are heading to the summit and the figures confirm that.”
Over the past year of its journey in Nigeria, QuickBus has onboarded over 40 Bus Operators, sold over 30,000 tickets and processed over 8 million weekly in GMV.
According to Head of Operations and Supply, Obidinma Nnebe, “We’re building towards what will be a perfect product for the market, but we can all be really proud of how far we have come already, especially given the time in which we have done it.”
QuickBus is changing the future of transportation in Africa by providing a marketplace where Bus operators are listed and travellers can book tickets from the comfort of their homes. QuickBus is currently operational in two countries on the continent.
