Have you ever had to deal with the stress and inconveniences associated with public transportation, especially here in Nigeria? If so you’re not alone. We’ve all had to experience it once or twice and sometimes even more. Some people have had to put up with it on a daily.
Public transportation in Nigeria is not just bad, it’s something that shouldn’t be experienced. Think about the rush and energy required to get into a decent cab or bus, then the fact that you have to almost always squeeze yourself so tightly in order to accommodate the next person.
Asides comfort, vehicles in Nigeria are powered by fossil fuels which causes pollution to our environment and in one way or another affects everyone of us.
Now the 21st century is here with numerous types of renewable energy to power transportation, which includes solar, electric and water, providing us with clean energy for our cars and ensuring zero emission and pollution.
