Awka-Transport Company of Anambra State (TRACAS) has in line with the celebration of Anambra State at 29, commended the State Government for improving transportation in the state and beyond.
“Under the administration of Gov. Willie Obiano, the company has extended its services to 36 states of the federation and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) with some states having two or three stations.’’
The Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer, TRACAS, Dr Ifeoma Madukasi said this while being interviewed by newsmen at Awka.
She said the company had introduced tremendous innovations into the TRACAS operations since inception of the present administration that included not less than 100 direct and indirect job opportunities to the people of the state.
“We have a functional website, where one can get all the information about our services and locations; presently, one can book for trips online from any part of the country.
“For this, many companies and private individuals are partnering with us.
“This expansion is the reason that we are training and retraining our drivers to be abreast with new driving skills and communication systems.
“We have also introduced various programmes and opportunities for our passengers, geared toward making them more customer-friendly.
“In line with this, we have introduced Travel and Win promo; I urge you to safeguard your tickets so that at the end of the year, we stage transparent draws to unveil winners.
“All these have been made possible because of a visionary leader in Gov. Willie Obiano, who has really transformed every sector of the state’s economy by installing a secure business-friendly environment.
“Don’t forget that Gov. Obiano is one of Governors to have provided mass transit buses for the state’s workers.
“Apart from this, he has stabilised the transport system in the state through the provision of long Transit Buses, known as `Willie is working’ to Ndi Anambra.
“The fare for the buses, still remain fixed at N100 per trip to any part of the state; this has indeed, compelled other commercial buses to reduce their fares.’’
