At the moment, more than 50 African cities have a human population over one million. Cities like Lagos (Nigeria) with a population of over 20 million people is expected to become the largest city in Africa and one of the world’s megacities. What does a higher city population mean ? The answer’s simple – more movement!

People come to the city for a reason – to find work, go to school, or start a small (or big) business. As a result, there is a lot more movement in cities and towns than in the rural areas. City people wake up in the morning and go to a job they already have, or move around town searching for one. Many other city people are either self-employed or own a small or medium-scale businesses. The ones who do not belong to either of these groups have to get to school.

The point is simple – human transportation is a CRITICAL need of people living in cities and towns. Like food and water, we cannot do without it! Because millions of people (and their goods) NEED to move around every day in Africa, there exists a huge demand for transportation services. While it’s true that many African economies are improving, not many people can afford private cars to move themselves around.

Human transport business in Nigeria and Africa at large is worth billions of dollars, Africans who do not own vehicles are finding it more and more difficult to move around town these days. The growing population of Africa’s cities and towns is creating a transportation demand so huge that both private and public transport services can barely keep up.

Every day, more than 250 million Africans depend on commercial transportation to get them to their places of work, school or business. In the absence of reliable public transportation systems to serve these people, several opportunities have become available to smart investors who want to exploit this huge and lucrative demand.

How huge is the demand for human transport services in Africa? A major factor responsible for the growing demand for transportation services is Africa’s rapid urbanization (more people are moving to the cities) and growing economic and physical activity (more people are moving around for business and personal reasons).

In the 1980s, the population of Africans living in cities was less than 120 million. Currently, more than 40 percent of Africa’s one billion people live in urban areas. The proportion of Africans who now live in cities is higher than India (30 percent) and roughly equal to China (45 percent). At the current rate at which Africans are flocking to the cities, more than 300 million more of us will become city dwellers within the next 20 years. (source: McKinsey Research).


Given the inadequate and poorly maintained road networks on the continent, it would be hell if everyone had their own car. Where it exists, the public transportation systems in many countries on the continent are inadequate, unreliable and poorly maintained. To address this shortfall, many countries license and allow private bus companies, taxi operators and ferry services to help meet the huge demand.

This has opened some interesting opportunities for investors to make good money while providing transport services that help to move people around. However, with how juicy the opportunities in this industry are, it is capital intensive and takes a great deal of management skill and attention to be successful in it.

This is what TransBerg provides thereby giving just about anyone the opportunity to participate and enjoy good returns in the transportation business.
