Shuttlers, Nigeria’s leading tech-enabled bus sharing company that covers more than 115 routes in Lagos and Abuja, and moves thousands of people – has partnered with the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) to ease transportation for its members and decongest traffic along Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
The collaboration will enable Redeemers to enjoy safe, affordable, and comfortable shuttle rides on over 400 routes, from 98 provinces in Lagos to the campgrounds of RCCG.
Shuttlers and RCCG partnership will kickstart ahead of RCCG’s 70th Annual Convention, scheduled for Monday 8th of August 2022.
Through the new transport partnership, Shuttlers will help improve transport operations for RCCG and the shuttle experience for its members while reducing congestion in Lagos and carbon footprint.
“We are excited to kickstart this partnership with Shuttlers which will help improve the typical transportation experience for our members who will be attending the 70th Annual Convention,” said Pastor Adeolu Adeboye, Chief Operating Officer RCCG Traffic Mayors and LASTMA Traffic Mayor. “Some of our members have had hectic commuting experiences in past conventions, and we believe this partnership will improve the general experience of this year’s convention and subsequent events.” according to Pastor Okey Mofunanya, Security Adviser to the General Overseer, RCCG Worldwide.
In Lagos, congestion costs the economy more than 14 million USD per day, and it is not atypical for most residents to spend over two hours traveling just eight kilometers to the Redemption Camp. Attendees of the 70th Annual Convention can schedule rides with Shuttlers’ mobile application from the comfort of their homes. Members who book successfully ahead of the convention date will get the opportunity to enjoy a hassle- and stress-free transport experience to and from the RCCG campgrounds.
“We are providing software and assets to ease operations, enabling real-time bus tracking and transforming the transport experience of members visiting the camp,” said Damilola Olokesusi, Shuttlers CEO.
