1. God is Good Motors
God is Good Motors is undoubtedly the best transport company you can find in the country right now, with extremely neat and reliable buses, professional staff and drivers, comfortable bus terminals where you can relax and wait for departure, etc.
They’re among the oldest transport companies in Nigeria, but also the pioneer of digitizing the entire transportation industry in Nigeria before others followed suit.
For instance, they were the first to introduce online booking whether on the God is Good website or the mobile app.
And speaking of the mobile app, aside from booking bus tickets, you can also make other transactions such as bill payments, airtime purchases, etc.
And in addition to moving people from place to place, they also provide logistic services under the sister company, God is Good Logistics with separate and branded Mercedes Benz buses provided just for the purpose.
So, if you’re a small business owner or simply just have something to send over to someone that doesn’t require you to meet them physically, you can simply send it through God is Good Logistics.
The only disadvantage here is the fact that their services may be way more expensive than what other transportation companies are offering.
2. Young Shall Grow Transport
Coming in second place is the Young Shall Grow Transport company. Like God is Good motors, they’re also among the very best of the best transport companies you can find in Nigeria right now, offering you some of the best value for your money.
One advantage you get with them is aside from the fact that they’re slightly cheaper than God is Good Motors, you give you a variety of vehicle types ranging from Toyota Hiace buses to the long and luxurious Macopolo buses, offering you comfort beyond measure.
And finally, like God is Good Motors, you can also book your tickets online, and they also offer cross-country travel to places like Ghana, Cotonou, etc.
3. ABC Transport Company
ABC Transport is arguably one of the oldest transport companies in Nigeria, as a matter of fact, they were initially the best transport company around until God is Good took the cake from them.
Though they still hold the reputation they have held in the past, offering comfort and reliability, we can argue that their buses are now a little too old-looking nowadays, coupled with the fact that they don’t travel to some locations in the country, but they’re still among the best transport companies you can find right now anyways.
4. Chisco Transport Company
Chisco transport is not one that I will consider very old, and at the same time, neither will I say it’s a new or emerging transport company, it’s just there.
But speaking of their services, they provide some of the best transport services which include comfort like the Young Shall Grow Motors, they give you a variety of vehicle choices ranging from the Toyota Hiace buses to the luxurious Marcopoly buses, and guess what, they fares are even cheaper than God is Good, ABC Transport, etc.
In addition, they also provide a service they refer to as Loyalty rewards. What this means is, anytime you travel with any one of their buses, you earn some points, which when enough, can be converted to discounts of up to 15% on your next trips.
5. GUO Transport Company
GUO Transport Company, arguably a household name in the Nigerian transportation space is one of the best transport companies you can travel with this holiday season.
From offering a variety of vehicle types to ensuring the maximum comfort of passengers to online ticket booking services, very good and neat buses, logistic services, and even cross-country traveling.
So, if you’re looking for a reliable transport company in Nigeria to travel with during this season, then the GUO Transport Company sounds very much like a good idea.
6. Libra Motors
Libra Motors is arguably one of those many transport companies that came out a few years back, and quickly made a name for themselves by offering top-notch transport services, neat Toyota Hiace buses, and all the additional stuff like online ticket booking, etc.
So, if you’re looking for a transport company that offers top-notch services and comfort, then you should definitely add the Libra Motor transport company to your bucket list.
Other notable mentions
Other notable mentions from the list include the Peace Mass Transit, E. Ekesons Transport company, Okeyson Motors, and ITC (Imo Transport Company).
They’re also very good and reliable transport companies, but just not up to the level of the first six. Peace Mass Transit used to be on that level before, but they’ve recently dropped a bit in quality over the years, while names such as E. Ekesons are currently working up the ladder, offering good enough transportation services.
And that wraps it up for the best transport companies in Nigeria you can find today, especially for people planning on traveling during this coming Christmas holiday season.
