ICT firm hits on app solution to ease cost of transportation

AN Information and Communication Technology (ICT) firm, MyCoPilot Ltd, has developed an application (App) to tackle the rising cost of transportation occasioned by the removal of fuel subsidy.

At a press conference in Lokoja, the Chief Executive Officer and co-founder of the firm, Chizoba Jeff, described the application as a go-to platform for commuters seeking safe and cost-effective travel options. 

He explained that the novel initiative designed towards a better transportation future, which has over 3,000 users, ingeniously connects private car owners headed in the same direction with verified passengers in need of affordable transportation options.

According to him, the App, deploys its Artificial Intelligence technology, and “by simply entering their destinations and dates, users are swiftly matched with nearby car owners who have available seats and are headed in the same direction.

“Adversity always seems to produce greater innovation and in the Nigerian transport sector, a remarkable solution has surfaced, revolutionizing road travel.”

He said: “MyCoPilot’s smart algorithms optimise routes and pricing, ensuring passengers benefit from substantial cost saving compared to all other road transport options and in the process help Nigerians cushion the effect of the current corrosive economic climes.

“It no longer makes sense for you to have a car in Nigeria today and not consider using the MyCoPilot App for some of your movements if not all.

“In the dynamic world of technology, innovations have continued to redefine the way we live and move.

“In the nation’s current economic situation, there is need for all hands to be on deck to revolutionize the road travel system.

“In Nigeria, a nation with bustling cities and vibrant communities, battling economic wars, transportation has emerged as a pressing challenge for many citizens.”

Jeff said that the firm is offering scholarships to at least, two persons per family of any car owner on the app after meeting a certain number of trips. 

He added that the company would also offer health insurance for the users in view of the economic condition, which has hampered the spending power of Nigerians.

He assured that users of the app are secured as safety remained a non-negotiable priority for MyCoPilot has robust security measures.
