Eonsfleet Prosolutions Limited (EPL), a leading technology service provider in Nigeria’s metropolitan transport system, has announced a partnership with Primero Transport Services Limited, operators of Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) in Lagos, focused at optimising mobility solutions and reducing travel time for commuters in the nation’s most populous city.
Tokunbo Arannilewa, chief executive officer/co-founder of EPL, said the move was part of efforts to digitise and transform the transportation ecosystem in Nigeria and provide solutions to growing small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in the transport sector.
The EPL CEO stated that the company would, through its technology solutions capacity, deliver a transportation ecosystem enabled with artificial intelligence that would harness the power of data, analytics and cloud, to reduce travel time and manage congestion across the state.
In addition, Aronilewa said the system would equally improve regulatory compliance, support preventive maintenance and enable dynamic policy-making, aside other benefits.
“It has become imperative to deploy world-class strategy-led artificial intelligence-driven solutions and next-gen technology services to the Nigerian transport sector,” he remarked.
Fola Tinubu, managing director of Primero, said the partnership was strategically planned to proffer solutions to transportation challenges and enhance delivery of quality services to Lagos residents.
“Technology is the driving force of everything we do in transportation. It drives ticketing, scheduling and monitoring. Technology makes the system more efficient and must be incorporated in transportation,” he said.
Tinubu assured commuters that Primero is ready to deploy digital solutions to reduce passengers waiting time and improve customer experience, adding that the partnership is aimed at building integrated digital platforms to understand customers, and provide an improved seamless transit experience.
