Africa’s largest shared mobility platform Treepz has announced that it has expanded its services to cater for more Africans using buses for their transportation needs.
The new solution – Business Treepz is focused on providing quality transportation at affordable rates for employees of companies, students in schools, and any organisation in need for a comfortable vehicle.
Treepz technology will enable passengers to be easily checked in at the point of pick-up and checked out at drop-off to ensure a safe journey.
Speaking on the launch of the new service, the country manager Treepz Uganda said, “We are happy about the impact that Treepz has achieved over the last three years. We are excited about the feedback we have got from our dear customers which has enabled us improve our product. We can now better fulfil the requirements of organisations wanting to benefit from our high quality transportation service that also allows the use of technology. We are looking forward to growing our partnerships with businesses and schools to make sure more Africans can move comfortably and safely to wherever they have to go.”
The launch of Business Treepz coincides with Treepz’s three year anniversary. On the 16th of September 2019, Treepz formerly known as Plentywaka, set out officially to revitalise public transportation and bring comfort and safety to riders in Africa using digital technology, starting in Lagos, Nigeria. It then started operating Daily Treepz, a solution that connects commuters with bus drivers via the Treepz App for intra-city travel.
Treepz set up its headquarters in Ontario, Canada, and then expanded to other African countries including Ghana and Uganda to allow more Africans to move around various metropolitan cities in a more structured, predictable and accessible way. In September 2021 Treepz acquired Stabus Ghana, one of Ghana’s leading mobility startups launched in 2019 by its Co-Founder, Isidore Kpotufe. In Uganda Treepz made the acquisition of a
similar start-up in December 2021, Ugabus which was launched in 2016 and had 70% of all bus operators in the East African country on its platform with a mobile money technology for easy payments.
On its anniversary, Treepz can celebrate various milestones this September. There are 2 million completed bookings through the platform with 134,000+ app downloads across 3 African countries. This was achieved while delivering optimal bus transport solutions backed by constantly improved technology via the Treepz App.
On the anniversary celebration Onyeka said, “All these achievements would not be possible without our brilliant team, key stakeholders, partners, riders, heroes/drivers and people who have trusted us. We would like to say thank you to all. Cheers to more years of hassle free mobility.”
Going forward, Treepz will be focused on expanding its services in the three core markets, seeking for partners in new African countries and will work towards more sustainable transportation solutions powered by electric and gas vehicles to save CO2 emissions.
