ONYX Connect Zambia is a private limited company established in 2018 and headquartered in Lusaka, Zambia. The company is providing affordable transportation solutions on a Pay as You Go (PAYG) basis to underserved, urban and rural communities across Zambia. Onyx’s mission is to ease mobility for people in the lower income bracket by making environmentally sustainable quality products and services accessible and affordable to Zambians living in peri-urban and rural areas, who are financially excluded.
The company sells bikes and relevant accessories, specifically sells Buffalo bicycles, one of the strongest bicycles in Africa which is made for African terrain, an initiative of an organization called World Bicycle Relief. The bicycle has a five-year warranty due to its strength and the specially designed frame, carrier and stand of the Buffalo bicycle is said to provide the stability needed to support big loads and passengers over long distances in remote areas.
