Our History

BuuPass is driven by young entrepreneurs passionate about solving real everyday problems by making simple and powerful solutions. Our idea was born in response to the 2016 Hult Prize Challenge, a global student competition for social entrepreneurship, which launches students into developing scalable business models to solve global challenges.

The challenge for 2016 was to better connect people to goods, services, and resources. After a year-long process, the diverse team went on to win the prestigious competition with President Bill Clinton, under their former name Magic Bus Ticketing.
The BuuPass team is motivated by the idea of transforming inefficient transport systems into a catalyst for growth and impact, to connect people to opportunities.
