Ondo State's Sunshine Travels: 8 Things You Should Know (Photos) by naijadrivablog: 8:12pm On Aug 18, 2019


Some months ago, Governor Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State in a bid to create jobs and revive the defunct State Carrier, Owena Mass Transit, partnered Peace Mass Transit Limited to birth Sunshine Travels.



Here are 8 things you should know about the new carrier:
8. It is managed by Peace Mass Transit Limited, one of the subsidiaries of Peace Group Of Companies, owned by the Nsukka born businessman, Chief Sam Maduka Onyisi, MON. The companies are over 17, including Futon International Limited, the Exclusive Importer of Peace Hiace (UGAMA).

Peace Mass Transit has been in business since 1994.

7. Sunshine Travels is based on Driver-To-Owner policy, in which the driver of the buses will own the buses after paying for the said buses – just like hire purchase. This would make drivers responsible and give them a sense of ownership, check accidents and empower them. It is going to create jobs for drivers from Ondo and bring IGR to the State.

This policy was already in place in Peace Mass Transit, effective July 1, 2019.

6. All the buses used by Peace Mass Transit is UGAMA Hiace, a Chinese copy of Toyota Hiace (a brand owned by Chief Sam Maduka Onyisi, MON) are powered by 2.7L, 4-cylinder engines, are used by Sunshine Travels.

5. All the Ugama Hiace is assembled in the Industrial town of Emene, Enugu State, which started in 2016 to assemble Completely Knocked Down Parts of the buses. They were licenced for this by the Federal Government.





4. All Peace Mass Transit Parks are used by Sunshine Travels for bookings and loadings.

3. Peace Mass Transit suffered numerous fatal accidents that claimed the lives of many Passengers so, the locally assembled Ugama Hiace buses have been fitted with improved features for optimum performance, safety and comfort of passengers, including rear AC, speed limiter device, T.V, Electronic Brake Device (EBD), and Automatic Brake System (ABS).

To also ensure safety, there are PMT Patrols stationed in several places across Nigeria to checkmate the drivers (overspeeding and so on). This would also check Ondo Sunshine Travels' Vehicles and Drivers.

2. All vehicles of Sunshine Travels is also serviced by Peace mass Transport.

1. It is the official People carrier of Ondo, the Sunshine State of Nigeria as well as other passengers.

So what are they doing with the money the drivers return to them? That one is their profit I guess. Stupid politicians.

Being managed by Peace Mass Transit Limited will lessen the chances of it running down like many state owned transport companies.

Do you know Ethiopian Airlines? Is it managed by the Government of Ethiopia?

In this country, government businesses fail quickly than private ones for obvious reasons.

That's the spirit


Keep tribalism aside and work


While broke people play the tribal card. The elite work together and make more bread

In most PMT parks, yes. NAIJADRIVA was at PMT at Samonda Ibadan, Mile 2 Lagos and Upper Iweka Onitsha, Sunshine Travels buses were there.

Try their park at Jabi, Abuja.

Yes ooo. This is a laudable initiative by my indefatigable Governor. Unlike the aesthetic Owena Mass Transit which was only initiated to gain public applause, The sunshine travel was initiated to serve the people of Ondo State and will definitely last long.
