The consumer digital lifestyle and payments platform powered by Interswitch, has added Quickteller Transport, a digitalised transportation system to enrich travel booking experience of Nigerians.
The company said the Quickteller Transport enables users to easily search and book inter-state trips from multiple travel operators across the country.
Also, users will be able to filter their search to specific or preferred operators, compare fares based on criteria such as vehicle type, departure point and time, as well as access specialized functions provided by transport operators, including seat selection and preferred pick-up location option, all at their convenience.
MD, Interswitch Industry Ecosystems Division, Mrs Chinyere Don-Okhuofu, while speaking during the launch in Lagos explained that the Quickteller Transport Service is another step in the company’s continued commitment to provide its customers with convenient access to lifestyle and payment services.
Don-Okhuofu said: “Transportation is a necessary aspect of human life, enabling both social and economic interactions. In keeping with our culture of driving innovation and positively impacting consumer lifestyle in the society, we developed our Quickteller Transport service to provide added travel booking and payment convenience to our over five million customers.
“Built as a multimodal offering, we will be rolling it out to include other travel and transportation modes such as trains and ferries, working with operators across Nigeria.
“We are ecstatic to be launching this service. And as we launch our suite of new complementary services, Quickteller customers can be assured of our commitment to providing an excellent experience using Quickteller to access all their lifestyle and payment needs. “
