Sebenza, a groundbreaking tech platform, is set to transform the taxi industry in South Africa by offering free WiFi and content solutions to commuters. This initiative aims to provide passengers with enhanced connectivity and entertainment during their daily journeys.
According to Sebenza, students will particularly benefit from the availability of free WiFi in taxis and buses. The company stated that this advancement will enable students to access the Internet for research and educational purposes, thereby augmenting their knowledge and learning experience.
Moreover, Sebenza’s platform serves as a valuable tool for brands to extend continuous learning opportunities beyond the confines of traditional classrooms and offices.
Mayi Tshwete, the official spokesperson for Sebenza, highlighted the positive impact of this innovation on commuters. Tshwete stated, “One of the immediate benefits for passengers is a more enjoyable and entertaining commute.”
The platform offers a range of entertainment options, including games and engaging content, as well as personalized advertisements. Tshwete emphasized that these distractions help alleviate the perception of travel time for passengers.
Additionally, Sebenza recognizes the potential for increased productivity during travel. The platform encourages passengers to utilize their commuting time effectively by checking emails, working on projects, or conducting research in their respective fields. The provision of free WiFi also ensures that commuters can stay connected with friends, family, or colleagues during emergencies.
Addressing the importance of commuter safety, Tshwete stated, “We are currently looking at an emergency button on Sebenza for enhanced commuter safety. This commuter/pedestrian safety content is a project we hope to launch soon.”
In exchange for the benefits of free WiFi, passengers are rewarded through Sebenza Bucks for engaging with brands and participating in meaningful interactions. These Sebenza Bucks can be redeemed in various ways, such as purchasing internet time or participating in the “spin ‘n win” wheel for a chance to win grocery, food, or data vouchers.
With Sebenza actively expanding its initiative to provide free WiFi across the broader taxi industry, commuters are urged to keep an eye out for Sebenza-branded taxis.
