So many people are into the running business nowadays. It is not something necessarily new per se but it is more popular now. A runner is someone who does people’s errands for a fee. In Zimbabwe, the term is most synonymous with cross border activities. For instance, we have Zimbabweans in the diaspora, in countries like South Africa, Botswana, Namibia, and so on. They can charge for people to place orders of stuff they want in those countries. Then we also have those who are resident in Zimbabwe but do trips to such countries to get stuff for people. Efficient transportation is a huge part of those runners’ operations. In this article, I look at a bus booking service provider, myRunner.
Overview Of myRunner
myRunner launched in September 2017 aiming at becoming the premium bus booking platform in Southern Africa. myRunner allows you to book and buy tickets online. The platform allows bus operators to sell tickets both online and offline as well. The same platform allows bus fleet tracking all possible from a smart mobile device.
