Tiketmobile officially kicked off today and it essentially lets travellers find and buy bus tickets conveniently from their mobile devices. This was announced by the CEO, Celestine Ezeokoye in a Press Release on the Co-Creation Hub website in Lagos
It was first conceived and built at Start-up Weekend Lagos in September 2011.
Tiketmobile has one bus company listed and is currently in talks with up to five other companies. The company hopes to sign-up all providers of interstate bus transport.
Tiketmobile was supported during the period leading to release, particularly Co-Creation Hub, Tony Elumelu Foundation, Nokia, Microsoft
I hope it is ready for the operational challenges ahead. It is not only about development. There is the execution bit.
