Uber plans to venture into bus transportation in Lagos

Following the success of its bus launch in Egypt, Uber is planning to introduce its bus transportation system in West Africa’s business hub, Lagos.

The Silicon Valley-based firm said its already in talks with city transport officials in the city.

Few months ago, Uber’s chief business officer, Brook Entwistle visited Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu to discuss how the company could get approval and collaborate with the state to reduce traffic gridlock and provide better public bus transportation system for the people.

The ride-hailing giant has been trying to diversify its services beyond provision of car hailing to other services line food, considering financial services.

UberBus is a new way to enjoy a comfortable, safe, and convenient commute in Cairo. There’s no need to wait to hail down and squeeze onto a crowded bus. The Uber Bus app lets you reserve your seat on an air-conditioned bus that frequently run along popular routes so there is always a ride nearby. The Uber Bus app works on all android devices and in all network conditions.
