Buses are the heart of African mobility. Over 1 million buses travel the roads of Africa, providing the most affordable and accessible daily transportation solution for the majority of African citizens. But these buses are also a problem. Diesel buses in Africa consume over 1 billion liters of diesel fuel each year.
BasiGo is developing a novel mechanism for financing electric buses in Africa. BasiGo's business model enables bus owners to purchase a state-of-the-art electric bus for the same upfront cost as a diesel bus, while still paying a lower operating cost than diesel.
