It depends on your routes or the routes you want to ply. Would you like to drive long distance because UBER customers may require that?

Two, what type of customers do you want? Do you want the regular customers or UBER customers made up mainly of the middle class upwards?

Three, what hours of operations do you want to run your business. UBER gives you the latitude to operate during the night, pick up night crawlers or club rats or night workers and all that. Although with Corvid-19, there might not be much customer traffic during the night.

Four, UBER will give you more peace of mind from Agbero disturbance than the Suzuki bus. Are you willing to put up or not to put up with their wahala?

Lastly, how much do you want to make. I think you may make more money with the car than with the bus.

But both vehicles if well managed and without accidents can give you good returns. But mind those points above and base your decision on them.

All the best and stay safe.
if I were the o.p I will take your advice without thinking twice because you just lay down a good point for him

Go for the Suzuki mini bus.
You will be snatching people's wives with that Uber Corolla angry
But with the mini bus, you will be picking up a lot of passengers and won't give you the privacy and status the Uber Corolla will give you to snatch people's wives.
Also the women you'll be picking up in the minibus would mostly be market women and razz mother's, very thin or obese, therefore not enticing for snatching.
Your moniker doesn't tell too well about you.

please how much is the mini bus sold
how much is Toyota and which of the Toyota does Uber accept?



maintenance cost of the duo? I will be glad if anyone can shield more light on this



thanks so far for the contributions, I'm still hoping I get more. thanks
Getting Toyota Corolla worth one million? I doubt if it will be a good one. Ikorodu is part of the headquarters of traffic in Lagos but passengers sure for u always. Uber is good but that ur money won't get u the required car. Mini bus will give u lots of savings and low maintenance. For me get the mini bus cos the Toyota Corolla may make u foolish feeling proud as car owner and loose focus. The mini bus can will make u determined to be a bus owner...and can easily make u enter into transport business fully...my take

Go for the bus brother. Don’t mind people telling you Uber will give you peace of mind. Which peace of mind when you may not even get 5 customers in a day. You’ll fuel the car and lots of stuffs. Uber requires time cos you aren’t the only one on the qeue and you may not be sure what happens to the car at the long run. So I’ll advise you go for the bus as you’ll be in full control of what you do. You can patrol Ikorodu to Berger if you are lucky and that’s 300 naira per passenger and more of that. Plus you may get the bus at lesser price if you can take your time.

Don’t make the same mistake that I made .
I bought a mini bus sometime ago n in less than a year was able to raise about 1. 5 million to buy a Toyota Corolla for uber.
This was a mistake I ended up regretting cos the Corolla I bought almost twice the mini bus made a weekly delivery of 35 k where as ,the min bus paid me 30 k weekly
If I had bought 2 mini buses with that money my weekly returns would have been 60k as against the 35k the Uber guy was delivering. So guy u better invest that money on a minibus n continue to multiply it until you have made enough money to acquire a Toyota Corolla while still having your minibuses running. The corolla would then just be there for convenience.
My point is if what you want is to make money... go for the mini bus.
In terms of stress ,they are both stressful .

At the moment, the Uber fare rates are complete rip-offs to the partner drivers.

The app company can afford to make the prices that low so long as they get their 25% commission on each ride not minding the stress on the driver's car plus the cost of maintenance.

It would seem as if you are making some cash from the job until your car calls for maintenance. Then you'd have to recall all the cash you had tucked away as profit plus even borrow to get it fixed then the cycle continues.

The number of cars on the street right now hustling isn't even encouraging.

With the minibus, you are your own bus. Whatever comes in you'd be able to put some aside for maintenance. So long as you comply with all the agbero and police rules, you will be fine.
Mini bus is the best. They make lots of money and save alot too with low maintenance. Only changing camber and shock absorber in Toyota Corolla can take upto 30k...that about the whole week hustle

NB: I have 750k at hand for now but I'm still expecting help to make it 1m. But with the cash at hand, is mini bus Suzuki sellable, will I gain if I'm to drive it around my jurisdiction or should I just continue saving for the Toyota corolla for uber

GO AND BUY THAT SUZUKI AND DRIVE IT YOURSELF AROUND THAT IKORODU,YOU WILL NEVER REGRET IT.
E-HAILING BUSINESS A.K.A UBER IS NO LONGER PROFITABLE,SO MANY DRIVER'S IN THE SAME MARKET TRYING TO FETCH THE SAME NUMBER OF PASSENGERS.
You spend a lot on repairs and commission if you drive on Uber.
But on korope,your maintenance is not that much and you only pay agbéró Some few cash, above all you go dey always get passenger once you know you way.

thanks for your piece of advice bro


since I will be driving it myself, night movement is out of it. my priority is to gain enough money that will make me go fully in the establishment I have in my heart which is frozen foods in wholesales. it requires huge capital, I just want to use the transport business to sort out capital

Hey bro.

It's a great idea wanting to step out of your main goal to raise funds for the real deal. Nonetheless, for frozen foods, you can start small and grow the business. If you are looking to invest about 1m into the transport business, you can equally start the frozen foods and grow from there. You need to see what can work on a smaller investment that would gain traction.

The beautiful thing about starting small is it will help you understand the business more and grow your customers. Customers are the beating heart of any business if you can find who are willing to buy from you. You customers can either B2B or B2C. Nothing spoil if its the two category.

It's just a suggestion. All the best in which way you choose to grow. Greatness awaits you.

Don't buy the corolla for the following reasons

1. People would think you have arrived financially because you own a car.

2. Cheaper to maintain a mini bus than corolla

3. Owning a corolla you are prone to thieves and Bulgars.

4. Since you don't want to work at night buying a corolla might not be really useful... The best time to make money in uber is at night.

5. The funds you have cannot buy you a good Corolla. You need atleast 1.3million.

Mini Bus Hightly profitable since you are the driver!!!


Uber is like part time job and must be night clawer to see more gain. It is either you get lucky or unlucky plus the whole recession coming into play.


[s]All people take uber to parties, club, church.[/s]

Within 4months if dedicated on your mini bus, you will get your 100% ROI

Uber takes aleast 9-18months 100%ROI

Note.. You are getting a toks min bus for 800K at most

2003 Toyota corrolla toks starts from 1.6 -2.2 for toks at most.


my 2cent advice, If you are not shy! Go for the mini bus plus you can spend your gain on the polutry business as you german german join your mini bus!
