Business Accelerator finalist Africa People Mover (APM) provides the missing link in central bus transport – delivering a safe, reliable and punctual service that is also very affordable.
The intercity passenger transport and long distance coach service has 22 buses in its fleet and prides itself in excellent customer service.
Business growth specialist Pavlo Phitidis explains that APM founder Tumisang Kgaboesele was able to identify a gap for a quality transport offering in a highly saturated market.
Kgaboesele advises that his previous employment at Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (Prasa) made him aware of the need to create a safe, affordable and reliable transport option for working class citizens.
I decided that there is an opportunity in the market to start something that focuses specifically on the low-income segment, while still providing high-quality service at affordable prices.— Tumisang Kgaboesele, Founder and CEO of Africa People Mover
The three-year-old business employs 180 people and has transported in excess of 450 000 passengers.
Phitidis advises that APM should double down on its customer service to expand its reach.
