Eywa is your one-stop-shop for shared mobility: bus, train, shared taxi, motorbike.
It’s a prepaid (miles) wallet, just like airtime, but for mobility. Top up with mobile money or bank account,
Use your miles to book needed rides, from your mobile. At the bus station, simply scan your QR Card to board. EyWa QR Cards are free to collect.
Trips are sponsored by nearby businesses along the route. Book their deals and earn reward miles.
Mobility is what feeds local commerce. Local businesses have to pay a higher rent for locations near busy routes (foot traffic). Some, rely on street vendors to directly connect with commuters on the road. There is a better way.
Eywa lets businesses and service providers:
Sponsor the trips coming to their locations.
Promote their offers and attract commuters.
Reward them (with free miles) for coming.
Micro-transporters move 80% of commuters in Africa, and yet have no access to mobility subsidies. EyWa designed a fresh program, in partnership with mobile operators and banks to:
Checkout how forward thinking transporters and local businesses use EyWa.
Touristique Express, one of the largest intercity bus operators in central Africa, was the ﬁrst to join EyWa and Orange in Cameroun, listing their most popular route (Douala - Yaounde) Travelers connect to EyWa (ussd App), book needed trips then pay with Orange Money, all within the same booking session. A mobile ticket is issued and used to board.
Camrail (Bolloré Logistics Africa) launched with EyWa and Orange, listing their trains routes from Douala, Yaoundé, and Ngaoundere. Travelers can book from their mobiles days in advance, select the needed train departure and seat, then pay with Orange Money.
A “Management Dashboard” lets transporters monitor their “digital” sales in real-time, across the country. For each trip, an "Electronic Manifest" is created for branch managers to track the bookings and ﬁlling rate.
Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) is the latest trend in urban mobility for mega cities in Africa: dedicate bus lines, new stations, shiny ﬂeets etc.. BRTs are very attractive for populations and stations get quickly crowded with thousands of commuters queuing to buy tickets and struggling to board. Legacy BRT fare collection systems are expensive and rarely meet the actual challenges on the ground.
EyWa is the Digital Ticketing platform designed for this reality:
EyWa partners with BRT operators and public transport agencies to provide the right “soft”ware infrastructure after their signiﬁcant investments in “hard” infrastructure.
Social and cultural events are critical in any city. Sport and Music generally attract thousands attendees in stadiums which still rely on cash and paper tickets that attendees spend hours in queues to purchase.
Service providers, business, public or private institutions can purchase and issue tickets for their employees, customers, beneficiaries. As an example, NGOs such as the World Food Program or Governments issued “Food” Tickets for remote populations in crisis.
Total implemented this use case with Orange in Niger, in order to eliminate paper fuel tickets. Employees or fleets receive fuel mobile Tickets which they can spend at Total stations across the country. Total stations are equipped with EyWa readers App to verify and accept mTickets.
