Technology in bus: Booking Part 2

 One of the biggest change which has taken place is the way tickets are booked. Previously commuters had to go down to the operators/agents office to book tickets & they could not book return tickets. Today Bus tickets can be booked in the following manners

             ·         Booking through call centres of operators/telephonic booking.
 ·         Booking Online through the operators websites or through travel portals like,Abhibus,Travelyarri,Makemytrip among others.
 ·         Booking through Mobile Apps of operators

Today 5% Indians have started booking their tickets online & this population is rising each day.Previously bus tickets were booked hours/minutes before the departure where the situation today is around 32% book on the day of the travel, while 24% book a day prior to the day of travel and during festive/holiday season tickets are booked almost 15-20 days in advance. Online bus booking have witnessed a huge spurt since January 13 registering a whopping 185% growth.

India today has 2000 organised private bus operators in the country with a fleet of 20,000 luxury buses of which around 20% of the buses are in the AC bus category. 72%  of all online booking is for AC buses & 28% for non ac buses. These 2000 private bus operators have services to a minimum of 10 cities each & each city has atleast 1 office by networking their own offices & issues computerized tickets has lead to real time inventory management, thus improving the occupany levels in bus.
