Please tell us a little bit about you
My name is Bola, I'm the HR Manager of a real estate company in Victoria Island, Lagos. I live in Omole Phase 2.
How long have you used Shuttlers?
I've been using Shuttlers for the last 6 months.
What was your transport experience like before Shuttlers?
Before Shuttlers, my office was a 15 minute drive from home and it was very convenient. But when I changed jobs, driving to the island wasn't something I enjoyed. In my first week of resuming I used one of the ride-hailing apps and it was EXPENSIVE! I stopped that and started using BRT. It was affordable, but not convenient. I typically use the time to catch up on work on my laptop, but I couldn't do it. So I end up taking work home with me, reducing the quality of time spent with family.
What kind of things are you able to do during your commute time?
I can comfortably do some work on my way to do office or to the house, catch up with friends, and relax.
What are your favourite things about using Shuttlers?
It's safe, convenient, and affordable. I can't possibly imagine driving to and from work daily; I'd be so unproductive. So that would have meant hiring a driver, which is an extra expense that could be avoided. Don’t get me started on fuel costs. The sustainability aspect is also a big plus for me. If we were all driving in Lagos as it currently is, the roads would be completely unrecognisable. Now imagine what that does to the air. I also remember the cash problems we had recently, Shuttlers was such a life-saver. So the user-friendly app that supports other payment methods is definitely one of my favourites.
Does Shuttlers help your finances?
Oh yes! It does! I spend less than NGN10,000 a week on my transport fare to and from work. If I were driving, I'd be spending way more on fuel, maintenance, and paying a driver.
What's your advice to those who haven't started using Shuttlers yet?
Come onboard ASAP! It's comfortable, safe (no case of one-chance), you'd arrive to work still smelling fresh, you can use your commute time conveniently, and you get dropped off at your nearest bus stop. If you haven't joined Shuttlers, you should!
