Another one rides the bus. Africa People Mover provides the missing link in intercity bus transport – delivering a safe, reliable and punctual service that is also very affordable. Planes, trains and automobiles may be Steve Martin’s favourite methods of transport, but for many in Africa, the only long distance transport option is the bus. And this is where Africa People Mover (APM) comes to the fore, offering quality scheduled intercity passenger services to the low end of the road travel market. “Having cut my teeth in the passenger services industry, working with the passenger rail association, I experienced how the poor were at the mercy of service providers. This was when I developed my vision to provide superior, safe and simple travel for all intercity travellers,” says company founder Tumisang Kgaboesele. Tumisang points out that in SA, the long distance coach sector is notorious for poor quality service, unsafe operations and high fares, especially during peak times. APM has found its niche by providing quality service, affordable fares, reliable coaches, personal safety, a convenient and reliable timetable and a punctual service. “APM is currently the only black owned intercity operator with nationwide capability. From a zero base, we have reached the point where we have transported in excess of 450 000 passengers. Our destination is to be the transporter of choice for all intercity travellers in our country and we hope to achieve this by increasing our media relations, thereby increasing people’s awareness of our services and growing our business systematically.
