Travel between Nigerian states has a reputation of disregarding the time of travellers and being generally tardy and uncomfortable. TAPIS is changing the narrative by being right on time and providing the travellers with the most comfortable trip ever with various comforting features.

Lagos, August, 1st, 2022 —Touch and Pay Technologies, the number one NFC & transport payments processor in Nigeria is officially announcing the launch of TAP Interstate (TAPIS). 

This service allows commuters to board interstate buses at any of the designated BRT terminals at Yaba, Ojota & Ewu. TAPIS is a timely alternative for travelling interstate between Lagos – Abeokuta – Ibadan.

They say time is money and no one appreciates waiting for so long at the park for a full bus before leaving for their destination.

With TAPIS, the time of travellers is highly valued and they will no longer waste a minute waiting for a bus to get filled with passengers before embarking on the journey. The TAPIS team has strategically picked time schedules for the trips so everyone is included and catered for.

For a better experience and sweet deals, TAPIS has partnered with the Cowry transport app to enable travellers to prebook interstate trips and make payments right from the app.

Free Wi-Fi, charging ports on the bus, AC, life and luggage in transit insurance, and timeliness are some of the amazing features TAPIS has to offer travellers that chose its services. 

Loading from Yaba, Ojota and Ewu terminal (MM1A), TAPIS will be going from Lagos to Ibadan and Lagos to Abeokuta. Other terminals will be included as operations progress.

You can travel with TAPIS in two ways:

  1. WALK-IN 
  • Go to the designated BRT park at Yaba, Ojota or Ewu to board a bus before any of the scheduled time.
  • Pay for your trip and get on board
  • Leave for your destination at the exact scheduled time.

    2. PRE-BOOK WITH THE COWRY APP

  • Download the Cowry transport app, register your details

Speaking on the integration: Olamide Afolabi, Co-founder and CEO of Touch and Pay Technologies said: “Payment is not a technology problem, it is a social problem, which is why innovations towards solving transport payment problems are inevitable.” 

Time plays a significant role in our life. Time helps us make a good habit of structuring and organizing our daily activities and TAPIS ensures that everyone’s time is respected. The timeliness of TAPIS allows all travellers to do more with time saved which leads to more time freedom, helps travellers focus better, allows them to be more productive, lowers stress and gives them more time to spend with the people that matter most

At Touch and Pay (TAP) we have set out to transform the payment landscape in Nigeria by facilitating financial inclusion and ensuring 99.9% reliability in cashless transaction processes.
