ABC Transport’s Sprinter service has commenced operations to Accra, Ghana, with effect from 1st July, 2016, running alongside Coach West Africa, ABC flagship coaches on that international corridor.
This is informed by the increasing demands for Sprinter service by customers along the West Coast of Africa.
ABC Sprinter is designed to satisfy the particular needs of light travelers: passengers who like to travel light with little or no luggage, and this service operates medium-size fully air-conditioned buses. Unlike the typical midi-buses deployed by some road transport operators, ABC Sprinter buses are more spacious, with enough legroom necessary to reduce the strain on such long distance trips.
In addition, ABC Sprinter buses carry 14 passengers only and boast of neat, cozy interiors. With their compact sizes, the average bus is best suited to operate in challenging road conditions and finding a way through tricky hold-ups along that cross-border corridor.
The buses are equipped with speed governors enabling the drivers to avoid over-speeding, based on the strict standards for which ABC Transport is known. ABC Sprinter service is favoured by small groups, tourists and smart travelers who would rather travel with fewer luggage.
Although ABC Sprinter has mainly operated in Lagos, Abuja, Jos, Kaduna, Owerri, Calabar, Uyo, Ibadan and Port Harcourt, its services will now be available in Accra [Ghana], Lome [Togo], and Cotonou [Benin Republic]. Meanwhile, under the ABC Corpers’ rebate, National Youth Corps members are entitled to a N500 discount on fare every time they travel with ABC Sprinter.
