El Tránsito - a beautiful seaside fishing village on the Pacific coastline of Nicaragua,

Blessed by three economic resources:

Rich fishing banks right off the coast ...

... some of the best surfing waves in the whole Pacific Ocean ...

... talented female artisans.

No one seems to know when the buses come and go

The fishermen are forced to sell their catch to aggregators for pennies on the dollar. The tourists do not come and experience some of the best waves in the Pacific. The female artisans do not travel for sales and business development because they are worried they will not make it back to their families in the evenings. 

Unlocking Travel for Social Good

ChickenBus presents a solution to these problems. ChickenBus is making a difference in communities like El Tránsito by making information on buses and ferries available for the first time.

is a socially minded company dedicated to improving access to transportation in low and middle-income countries. ChickenBus was founded in 2017 and since then a team of dedicated college students have created a website and mobile applications which has bus and ferry schedules for Nicaragua, the second poorest country in the Americas. ChickenBus is improving the fortunes of El Tránsito and countless other communities around the world by making it easier for citizens and tourists alike to reach these locations.

Here is what the website looks like:

Most importantly, we need your help to support our expansion to more countries. Our next countries will be Costa Rica and Honduras. Shortly afterwards, we hope to collect schedules and timetables for the rest of Central America, and then beyond! 

To collect data, we always employ local citizens from the countries we serve. This gives us the most accurate data possible and it keeps us connected to what matters most - serving communities around the world.
