Mercedes-Benz EQ Fellows: Humphrey Wrey

Quick Bus founder and managing director takes on transportation developments in Africa

Presented in partnership with Mercedes-Benz EQ

Across a continent where flying can be prohibitively expensive, Humphrey Wrey imagined a service that would formalize, rate and compare long-distance bus travel. Quick Bus was born—and an industry was modernized. Through a smartphone (or basic one), users can book transit in advance and offer feedback on carriers and experiences. Wrey’s impact reaches from comfort to safety. Prior to Quick Bus, Wrey worked in several African nations and drove his motorbike from Cairo to Cape Town—where is family has roots.

One of the 10 inspiring and motivated Mercedes-Benz EQ Fellows at Summit LA, Wrey’s vision and mission is one of connectivity. From his business base in Nairobi to destinations both near and far, his work brings people together.
