Kenya bus industry goes hi-tech with mobile ticketing apps
Kenya’s bus industry has gone hi-tech with a new user-friendly mobile solution to book bus tickets.
21 January - eManamba is an online ticket shop that allows travellers to book tickets for various bus companies in Kenya in real-time, using their mobile phones or computer. The bus companies that use the eManamba app ply to local and regional routes such as Kampala, Dar-es-Salaam, Kigali and Juba.
In a country where 7 out of 10 citizens have access to a mobile phone, mobile phones accounting for 98 percent of all Internet and data subscriptions, mobile-based transport solutions can go a long way in bringing sanity to what has, up until now, been a difficult and confusing process.
