businessday-icon

Management of ABC Transport has commenced the first phase of its fleet expansion programme. The expansion sees the injection of 24 new coaches with the Company having already taken delivery of the first batch numbering nine while the next batch (15 in number) is due for delivery in Nigeria not later than August 2013.

Spurred by the remarkable improvement in road condition nationwide, which has given rise to shorter travel time and culminated in the return of many passengers to coach travels, ABC Transport’s expansion programme has seen a great number of its loyal customers enjoying timely departures and early arrivals on a daily basis, on the whole.

The current brand of ABC coaches is equipped with surveillance monitoring camera for security purposes on-board and with speed limiters for speed controls. To make booking easier and more accessible to customers, ABC online ticketing has been enhanced to allow passengers book on-hold and pay later at their bank of choice.

ABC Shuttle Service, a short distance intercity operation, has equally received a boost from the ongoing fleet expansion. Thirty three (33) new Toyota Hiace minibuses will be deployed before the end of the year, to augment the existing fleet plying the South-East and South-South routes.

Consequently, Port Harcourt to Uyo now runs on an hourly schedule. And what’s more, ABC Transport has opened an outlet on 25, Port Harcourt Road, Opposite Owerri Girls’ Secondary School Gate, Control Post, Owerri, Imo State.

In addition, ABC Sprinter, a long haul intercity service for light travellers, has been injected with new fleet, thus offering customers the opportunity to travel Lagos-Uyo to and fro every 6.30am.
