BuuPass Acquires Bus Ticketing Platform QuickBus

BuuPass, a Kenyan travel booking platform, has acquired its Nigeria and South Africa-based competitor QuickBus. The financial details of the deal remain undisclosed. QuickBus’s developers and product managers will join BuuPass to facilitate integration processes, while its head of operations in South Africa will join BuuPass’s management team. The acquisition will help expand BuuPass’s partnerships with banks and telcos that offer multiple services, such as API integration features.

BuuPass will also replace QuickBus branding within existing integrations like VodaPay. Nigerian and South African users will also find BuuPass as their travel booking option across various platforms. The integration processes will entail rolling out additional travel options, such as train and flight bookings, which have been limited in BuuPass’s Kenyan market.
