The Secret to Super Metro’s Customer Service Success


A Bus Company That’s Winning Over Nairobi Commuters One Smile at a Time! 🚌

Have you ever been to the Archives pick-up point in Nairobi and found yourself in awe of the long line of commuters waiting to board the same bus? Well, that’s the power of branding at work. Meet Super Metro, the bus company that’s completely won over the hearts of its customers and turned them into die-hard brand ambassadors.

How did they do it? Let’s take a ride down memory lane and find out!

🔵 Power of the Brand: Simple is Always Better 💡

In a world where “Matatu Culture” reigns supreme, it’s easy to get lost in the clutter of over-the-top graffiti and clunky designs. But Super Metro saw an opportunity to stand out by keeping things simple.

Their buses are clean, uniform, and consistent in design, making it easier for their brand to be memorable and recognizable. That’s why we call them “Super Metros” and not just “Matatus” like the rest.

⚪ Power of the Brand: Dominance Leads to Expansion 💪

Super Metro started small, focusing on just two routes: Juja and Kikuyu town. But by dominating these routes with excellent service and building a positive brand reputation, they made it easier to break into new routes. The law of contraction, my friends.

🔵 Power of the Brand: Happy Customers = Powerful Marketers

At the core of Super Metro’s success is its commitment to providing exemplary customer service. From consistent pick-up and drop-off points to timely change, regulated music volume, and orderly boarding queues, it’s no wonder their customers are singing their praises.

After all, a happy customer is a powerful marketer, and no amount of marketing can undo bad customer experiences.

⚪ Power of the Brand: Your Employees Are the Face of Your Brand 💁‍♂️

In an industry known for rogue touts, Super Metro stands out by having the best-behaved drivers and conductors in the game. They’re always in uniform, polite, honest, and clean, which is a testament to their rigorous employee onboarding process.

⚪ Power of the Brand: A Brand That Listens 📞

Finally, what sets Super Metro apart is its commitment to listening to its customers. With a functional hotline, a Twitter account with over 10k followers, and a live website, they provide a sense of psychological safety around the brand. If anything goes wrong, you know where to go.

So, there you have it, folks! A bus company that’s winning over Nairobi commuters one smile at a time. If you haven’t tried Super Metro yet, you’re missing out on a bus ride like no other! 🚌
