The new feature of online bus booking will allow the customers to view a variety of buses and choose the appropriate bus for travel considering route, amenities, reviews, ratings and bus images available. Along with this, the customers will be able to choose their pick-up and drop points and timings and finally book their journey at a reasonable price with the ongoing bank and e-wallet discounts too, IRCTC said in a statement.
It is pertinent to mention here that IRCTC is already into the business of online rail and flight tickets. The company had launched its online bus ticket booking services in January this year.
Sources said the integration of the new service over IRCTC-Mobile app is expected to be completed in the first week of March. As a result of this integration, passengers will be able to book bus tickets on through their mobile phones as well.
