The bus business is hotting up

Home / Online Marketing / The bus business is hotting up

India’s online bus travel industry came of age today with www.makemytrip.com buying Ticketvala, which is one of the three prominent bus ticket providers. Other incumbents – redbus.in and travelyaari.com will be encouraged with the developments.

The online bus industry has the hard task of converting bus operators , which have traditionally been late adapters of technology, into online suppliers of inventory. They have accomplished this by building a ground up network of sales agents and a robust technology platform, letting the bus operators also share their call centre and booking platform for online bookings.

A bus traveler in India can now look forward to searching and booking a bus ticket online, selecting his seats and getting his booking ID as a text message onto his mobile phone, in a matter of minutes. Travelyaari, for example, guarantees 100% available bus inventory – so every seat on the website is available and ready to be booked.

Here’s to better value to the Indian bus traveler (and to higher valuations of course!)
