ZUPCO partners Econet’s as they launch Vaya Africa an online booking facility. The facility, which will operate on Vaya Africa’s Vaya Mobile Application, will be particularly handy for intercity travellers as they can buy tickets on the platform from anywhere.
The Zimbabwe United Passenger Company (Zupco) and Econet’s Vaya Africa, have jointly launched an online booking facility #VayaNeZupco to allow people to book transport services in the comfort of their homes. In a statement, Vaya Africa said:
We have officially launched the #VAYAneZupco online ticketing system for all your intercity travel. You can now book and reserve a seat from the comfort of your home. The government is working towards the revival of the public sector transport that had recently been dominated by private-owned computer omnibuses (Kombis).
Authorities have been actively encouraging public-private partnerships, a call that has received mixed responses. Some kombi owners contracted their vehicles to ZUPCO while some withheld their buses citing poor returns.
Vaya Africa is a Mauritius registered subsidiary of the Econet Group Limited mandated to move people and goods from one point to another.
