Letís calculate your business profitability if you wish to venture into the passenger transport business; first you need to do all the necessary registrations and required by the state to run a passenger transport business. After which you get the vehicles you need to get started depending on the amount of capital you have. Lets stay you purchased ten 16 sitter buses; to know how profitable the is, you have to deduct your expenses from your income; the remaining is your profit.

Continuing with our above illustration, the sixteen sitter buses are to ply a route where each passenger will pay N500 and all 10 buses take a trip at least once a day; and each vehicle requires N1,000 worth of petrol to make the trip while the drivers are paid N2,500 from each trip. It means that the income generated by each vehicle is N8, 000; you subtract N3,500 for gas and payment for drivers. This means that each car will make you N4,500 daily.
