The one year old QuickBus aggregates long distance bus tickets in a marketplace, making it easier for users to compare prices and book journeys. According to reviews, the business model has helped bus companies run their businesses more efficiently.

Meanwhile, having initially launched in Kenya, the startup is now also active in four other markets, namely Uganda, South Africa, Angola, and Zambia.

Speaking on the development, managing director Humphrey Wrey said the startup was growing fast. He said: “We processed more tickets in the last 24 hours than we did last month,” adding the startup would also hit US$1 million in gross merchandise volume (GMV).

Experts speculate that this growth is set to continue, with QuickBus shortly expanding into West Africa. Till date, the startup has processed over US$750,000 worth of tickets to date, and takes a 10 per cent commission on tickets sold on its platform. Wrey stated: “The goal is to become the number one platform to plan and book intercity bus journeys, servicing the 800 million people who live and travel in sub-Saharan Africa.”
