More than 75% of people in Nigerian cities (like Lagos) depended on public transportation to move around. Lagos is a very large city, with a population of 21 million people. 75% of that is about 15.8 million depend on public transportation for getting around daily. But not many changes have really been experienced in the way people use public transport, in the past 20 years, as compared to innovations seen in banking and other sectors.
We don’t have a strong automobile industry anywhere in Africa, while Uber is doing a fantastic job, we could do much more. That’s why software Engineer and serial entrepreneur, Celestine Ezeokoye, created WeMove. WeMove.co aims to formalize, organize and create order to the informal process as well as disrupt the market of vehicle hires. The company also wants to build a vehicle service marketplace that will eventually morph into a transportation service platform.
It’s a simple platform that allows you add your vehicle to an online database.
Imagine all that can be done if an accurate database of the different vehicles used in Nigeria (and Africa in general): cars, trucks, trailers, tippers, aircraft, boats, etc could be possible. Imagine how we can best make data-inspired decisions to take our transportation in the right direction.
WeMove.co provides customers with a platform to find various modes of transportation at the best available price possible. By vehicles owners listing their automobiles, they could be provided with an additional source of income. In other words, those who own vehicles could make some money from their machines. These include any bus owners, in particular those with Hiaces, Coasters, and Siennas.
Whether it’s an official trip or for leisure, WeMove covers transportation needs quite sufficiently. One doesn’t need to hassle, or make long trips to offices to select a vehicle that he/she would require. For more information click here.
