Lagos, Nigeria – (25-01-2019) Transport Innovations Limited, a Lagos based Technology firm operating as “Tripp” (which stands for Transport Innovations Platform and Products) and specialized in Urban Mobility Services has today announced the launch of its next generation social impact ride sharing platform. The platform is delivered via its mobile app called “Tripp” which was locally developed to fit into the socio-economic peculiarity of the Lagos and Nigerian environment. Tripp’s local thinking with world class infrastructure also addresses the security challenges of the Lagos environment with its 5-level security authentication
“We are indeed excited to bring to Lagos residents and commuters a different and better option in the transport mix of Lagos that is predictable, comfortable, convenient, affordable and secure. With Tripp, you can quickly book a ride or make your itinerary available and get to your destination without the usual bother of price haggling and “change” issues. Tripp also enables a way to ride in dignity and observes all safety protocols to make life better in a mega-city like Lagos”, said (Holly Osayomwanbo, Head, Public and Media Relations, Tripp).
“A key social impact aim of our firm is to bring people together by sharing empty seats in their cars. When more people decide to ride with other car owners instead of driving themselves, we will have less cars on the roads, less traffic, reduced air pollution, more time for things that matter, less cost of commuting and less stress among Lagos residents. We are positive we shall meet our target of having 200,000 less cars on Lagos roads by end of 2021”.
“For Lagos residents to avail themselves of this service, all they need to do is download and install the “Tripp Nigeria” App from the Google play store, complete the three step registration and security authentication process and they are ready to experience a different and better way to ride and get around in Lagos. Private car owners will be required to add their car details which is separate from the registration/security process”.
The Tripp App is distinctive in the Google play store for the traffic light sign that replaces the letter “i” in Tripp. Users of Apple products should expect the ios version of the Tripp App in the next few months.
