Based on feedback after its initial launch in September this year, a technology-driven bus sharing solution, Plentywaka says it has redesigned its mobile app, which is an improvement from the beta app to an all-new PlentyWaka app to improve the user experience.

Plentywaka is a bus sharing platform, which allows commuters to schedule their rides from their preferred pick-up locations to their desired destination. The platform, which many Nigerians described as a novel innovation,  kicked off operations on its pilot route being Ajah-CMS-Ajah.

The new Plentywaka App has many interesting features including the introduction of a wallet system called WakaPurse. With this new wallet system, riders can now fund their Wakapurse with as low as N1000 and conveniently pay for trips in real-time.

Other major improvements in this app include the optimized routing system, a better user navigation system and a referral system to introduce new users and earn points in their WakaPurse. One of the most celebrated features by riders is the ability for Plentywaka users to perform group bookings with its new multi-rider feature.

Making the announcement in a statement, the company’s Managing Director and Co-Founder, Johnny Enagwolor, disclosed that the new and improved app is already available for download on the Google Play Store and iOS App Store.

According to him, Plentywaka’s sole mission is to provide hassle-free transportation to the everyday Nigerian and we will stop at nothing to achieve that.

Onyeka Akumah, who is also a Co-Founder of Plentywaka expressed his excitement at the launch of the improved Plentywaka app revealing with excitement that PlentyWaka will now provide an opportunity for partners with vehicles that can move more than 6 people per time (Toyota Sienna’s, 14-seater buses, coaster buses, e.t.c.) to also sign up as Plentywaka Partners. By signing up, they can list their vehicles on the platform and earn decent revenue as riders commute.
