An automated cab dispatch centre, the BTXpress Universal Limited, has debuted in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

Speaking at the flag-off of the transport services company yesterday, general manager of the company, Mr Efe Okiemute, said BTXpress is a cab dispatch centre designed to make movement/life easier for both cab owners (drivers) and commuters by connecting them through a stress free Information and Communication Technology (ICT) platform.

Explaining how the platform works, Okiemute said drivers can key into the platform by subscribing and registering to their services while passengers can call for cabs from the comfort of their homes.

He said, “All you need to do as a cab driver or owner to enjoy our services is to fill a simple subscription form and endorse our contract form and our terminal device with internet bundle will be issued to you. While for a commuter, all you need to do from the comfort of your home, office, rendezvous is to call our multi-channel contact number 080-500-80-800 and a call agent will assign a registered cab to pick you with information on how long it will take the cab to reach you and the cost depending on how long you need the services of the cab.”

He said the initiative is to promote safe, secure and efficient transport services to meet their peak and off peak movements at very competitive rates.

In his remarks, the secretary of FCT Transportation Secretariat, Engr Jonathan Ivoke, who was represented by the director, FCT Directorate of Road Transport Services (DRTS), Engr. Wilson Alade, hailed the centre for the ingenuity of their innovation, describing it as the first of its kind in the FCT.

He urged the centre to key into the secretariat’s new initiative of registering their operators in their data base to promote security in the FCT transport system.
