Introducing “Agbero” an innovative payment solution App into the transportation operating system in the cities of Nigeria is about making transportation business in the country become more exciting.
The “Agbero” allows riders to own their mobile ticket with which they board commercial buses, faeries and boats.
It is is described by the Provider, Ruiti Agbero Limited as a positive innovative transportation App that can be downloaded in Google Play Stores and which takes care of the various yearnings of riders “to have a fare system commensurate with their ability to pay”.
According to the Chief Executive Officer of Ruiti Agbero Limited, Revd. Olusesan Ogunmilade, “Agbero” is indeed a mobile Ticketing solution model in which riders would only need to download mobile tickets using the phone and they do not need to carry cash.
Explaining how the App enhances ridership and gives revenue, Ogunmilade noted, the philosophy behind it is simple: a reduced fare leads to increase in ridership and profitability just as increased fares will lead to low revenue intake for the transport operators as the ridership population decreases.
On Prospects for increased capacity: The App according to Ogunmilade, will pave the way for organized Private Sector (OPS) – led public transport operations because the financial intermediaries are assured of guaranteed return on Investment (ROI).
“To travel for a whole day, the rider will buy a ticket with the mobile phone; he then travels on boats, ferries and buses of operators who are partnering with the “Agbero” App.
