Description

THE PROBLEM
People find it difficult to travel through public transport systems in Nigeria. As long as you are new to the place (even though you're Nigerian) you will most likely experience this difficulty in Nigeria.

THE SOLUTION
Compass provides local navigational aids.
It provides public transportation routes, types (e.g. bus, taxi) and prices.

HOW IT WORKS
Visit the mobile site (for mobile phones) or website.
Fill in your current location and destination.
You get the public transport route to your destination.
All your requests are anonymous so there is no fear of privacy.

IS THE DATA GENUINE
Yes, because it is being populated by indigenes of the locality who knows the in and out of the area.
Anyone can populate the data.
That is the reason why the data for Ibadan is currently being populated because we all know Ibadan very well. After that we will move to Lagos and other major cities.

WHY SHOULD YOU GIVE US INFORMATION
To help other Nigerians in need of it
We plan to reward you over time
