Shuttlers is a bus system that helps employees get to work. It offers live bus tracking, optimal routing based on traffic, digital payments, and ride schedules. The different payment plans allow companies to pay full fare for employees or split fares with them. Individual customers — unaffiliated with any partner company — can also pay fares themselves.

Thus, not only does Shuttlers help commuters alleviate the stress of driving to work or using disorganized public transport, but it is also playing its part in decreasing pollution and congestion. This mobility upstart’s commitment to creating impact aligns with Verod-Kepple’s vision for investing in entrepreneurs who are solving significant challenges and companies who have a positive impact on society.

Nigerian startup Shuttlers has raised $1.5 million in a seed round led by entrepreneur-investment firm SoFi and participated by AngelList, Nairobi Ventures and Accion Ventures. The funding will be used to improve its technology, grow the mass transit business and increase market share in Nigeria’s fast-growing space of tech startups.

Its focus is on becoming the dominant player in this sector by taking over all of the available market share.
