Plentywaka has announced a new service that the startup says will exclusively serve corporate customers.
The launch of “Plentywaka Staff Bus Solutions” comes at a time the company is looking to make traveling safe for its customers in the wake of COVID-19.
According to a press release the company published today, Plentywaka has also increased its routes within Lagos from 5 to 7. The two new routes will help ease commuter concerns as more people return to work following a relaxation of travel restrictions in the city.
The bus-hailing platform has said that it will clean and fumigate all of its Plentywaka Staff Bus Solutions buses. This is so as to comply with directives the state government issued to ensure the safety of travelers.
According to the startup, companies can access the new service in two ways. They can directly lease the Plentywaka buses or choose to have the company pick and drop off staff at designated points.
Companies that opt for the Staff Bus Solutions will get a driver approved by Plentywaka. There is also a mobile-accessed dashboard from which they can monitor and collect data about the service.
PLentywaka, which resumed operations on 5th May after a brief spell out of business, has launched buses on the two new routes in Lagos. That brings the total routes to 7, with the startup offering free rides for a week (May 18 to May 23). Both new and existing customers can access through an app.
Johnny Enagwolor, co-founder and Managing Director of Plentywaka noted that the launch of Plentywaka Staff Bus Solutions offers a “reassurance for business owners and staff anxious about traveling.” It provides businesses and their employees a “safer alternative” as people return to their workplaces.
