The service will begin operations with 25 buses to ply the Ajah-CMS route and is equipped with modern payment solutions including card payment and an in-app wallet to encourage cashless transactions that will help the users to plan their journeys not only on a daily basis but weekly and monthly.

The first set of users can enjoy two free trips on Ajah-CMS-Ajah pilot route after downloading the app.

According to the Managing Director, Johnny Enagwolor, “PlentyWaka is the next step for the future of the transport system in Lagos. Having access to safe, convenient and accessible transportation options is crucial to reducing bad driving, related crashes, and possible eventualities.”

“Crowdyvest was launched to foster a broader avenue for economic growth and build a system that will span across Nigeria and the rest of Africa. With the launch of PlentyWaka, we are focusing on innovation and better infrastructure in transportation for everyday Lagosians.”
