Plentywaka,A Nigeria- based bus-hailing app has launched WakaCab, a new car-hailing service with fully-trained drivers for commuters starting from Asaba in Delta State.
Plentywaka launched its car- hailing service after successful built a platform of over 40,000 customers that has seen substantial growth in year 2020. It also recently launched a B2C logistics platform.
The startup has successful raised a pre-seed expansion of about $3000 in August, 2020 with the process to support the limited transporting system in Southern Nigeria by launching ride hailing service.
“Expanding the Plentywaka brand into Delta State with a car-hailing service, after launching in 2019, is a testament to our success and the importance of staying true to the vision. But it also shows our commitment to solving the issues of transport in Nigeria; and that does not necessarily mean a one size fits all approach to each state. We recognised that there was a large shortfall in private car and technology driven services compared to the other states we operate in, therefore the proposition had to be different for Asaba and Warri,” said Plentywaka’s president and co-founder Johnny Enagwolor.
As part of the company’s launch into Delta State, Plentywaka will also introduce its Plentywaka Vehicle Partnership (PVP) scheme, which allows users to register their vehicles on the Plentywaka app and earn over income.
