Ruiti Agbero Limited, the Fare Payments as a service provider has introduced the Agbero App. It is available for download from the Google Playstore. The Agbero App is a city-wide fare payments Service.

In a low-income economy, as we have in Nigeria, the ‘Agbero’ App is a positive response to the yearnings of the riders to have a fare system commensurate with their ability to pay.

Ridership and Revenue

  • The philosophy behind it is simple: a reduced fare leads to an increase in ridership and profitability. And conversely, increased fares will lead to low revenue intake for the transport operators as the ridership population decreases.
  • Prospects for increased capacity

The Agbero App will pave the way for organized Private Sector (OPS) – led public transport operations in Nigeria because the financial intermediaries are thereby assured of guaranteed return on investment (ROI).

  • To travel for a whole day, the rider will buy a ticket with a mobile phone. And ride on the boats/ferries/buses operators partnering with the Agbero App.
