This service will be delivered throughthe Zeno mobile app.Zeno bus service is a schedule based system that is both time-based and route-based – a 7 ambus leaves exactly by 7 am and heads straight to its destination. It runs via a network ofprivate loading bays all across the city of Lagos. Schedules are available daily for users tobook and secure their seats in a bus ride.Our private loading bays have been carefully selected along existing paths to the traditionalbus stops. Whilst it immediately shields users and the buses from the harassments and hustleat the traditional bus stops, they are easily located as directions to them are available in theapp when a booking is made. The bus service runs two lines; a blue line with no stops inbetween and a red line that has only two stops. These stops are simply drop-off points.A key feature of the Zeno app is FDT (Fixed Daily Transit). This allows users with fixeddaily transit pattern to pre-book and schedule their rides ahead of time, saving them the lastminute rush of trying to book or completely missing a trip because it was fully booked. Withthis feature, users get a reminder 15 minutes before pick-up time to either confirm or canceltheir booking. Payment is completely cashless; you can pay in-app via your cards or bypurchasing a voucher online.The Zeno app has an SOS button on the user and driver apps respectively that can be activatedwhen in danger. This allows the business to intervene immediately if there is an issue of concernand can be further escalated to the nearest security agency if need be. Also, there is real-timevideo surveillance in the buses to capture events as they happen.Zeno buses are fully air-conditioned and comfortable. Needless to say, the affordability thatcomes with the shared system is unmatched. The buses also provide the opportunity forindividuals to join the scheme as partners by bringing their buses to the platform. Partners
have access to a remote dashboard that shows them how their asset is performing daily whilealso having a lion share of the revenue. The Zeno app is available to be downloaded on theGoogle and iOS app stores respectively.You can join the conversation and follow the Zeno experience on social media @zenonigeriaacross all social media platforms.
