Trekk Scooters launches innovation to tackle transportation challenges

Trekk Scooters has launched an innovation to solve mobility challenges in Nigeria.

Mr Praise Sakanwi, Co-founder and Chief Technology Officer, Trekk Scooters, stated this during his visit to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos on Wednesday.

Trekk Scooters is a company leveraging on technology to bring transportation alternatives and autonomy to communities and areas where there are transportation challenges.

Sakanwi said that the idea behind the technology was to allow people to move from one place to another effectively, safely and without stress.

“The technology is affordable because the main idea behind it was not to make money but to create alternative solutions to transportation challenges.

“It is affordable and cheaper to use Trekk Scooters compared to the popular Keke Napep.

“The parts are also affordable and can be easily sourced in Nigeria,” he said.

He said that Trekk Scooters used a battery as a source of power and can be fully charged within two hours and when fully charged it could serve as long as 25 km per hour.

“The technology had been tested in communities like universities, industrial hubs and Lagos Island with the plan to expand to other areas with micro-mobility technology infrastructure in future.

“The intended user needs to download the Trekk Scooters app on the app store and activate it with the code to commence usage.

“The scooters came with technical features like geo-tracking and fencing to track the location of each scooter and the rider on the back-end computers.

“There would be insurance packages for riders in a particular geo-fenced area in addition to safety features like speed limit already embedded in the Trekk Scooters,” Sakanwi said.

Also speaking, the Head of Lagos Operations of NAN, Mr Ephraim Sheyin, said the agency had the resources to let the world know about the new innovation brought to the country by Trekk Scooters.

He pledged the support and future collaboration of NAN with Trekk Scooters in its bid to bring solutions to transportation challenges in Nigeria.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the innovation would create a lot of jobs for the youth because the scooter would be produced, maintained and serviced in Nigeria. (NAN)
