On Friday, April 8, Digital Talks will be holding a live interview with the Co-founder and CEO of Shuttlers, Nigeria’s first and leading scheduled bus-sharing service, to discuss the ills, merits and future of Nigeria's transportation system and how Shuttlers plays in the big picture.
Damilola Olokesusi is the Co-founder and CEO of Shuttlers, a transport-tech startup that enables users to book trips along fixed routes at 60-80% less than other ride-hailing services in Nigeria.
In 2015, Damilola Olokesusi, frustrated by the stress of commuting in Lagos and following some nasty experiences involving her sister and other friends, decided to start a safe, affordable and efficient transport system powered by technology in Nigeria’s commercial hub.
This conversation comes at the most critical time in the Nigerian transportation sector. A time when anarchy is the order of the day and people live in constant fear of high costs of commuting and insecurity due to the lack of structure amidst other factors.
