Moreover, IRCTC said that this integration will help them host around 1.2 million bus seats daily.
“redBus is delighted to partner with IRCTC to offer travellers a convenient and secure means to book bus tickets. IRCTC is the most preferred platform for millions of travellers to book their train tickets, and now with redBus’ integration within IRCTC website and app, customers of IRCTC will get access to the widest range of bus options to complete their travel.Prakash Sangam, CEO, redBus
Users of IRCTC will get accessibility to features like choosing their boarding and drop points. They will also get an option to choose buses covered under the redBus Safety+ programme. It will help passengers select the safest bus option available on their route.
“Online booking of bus tickets witnessed a huge spike during the pandemic, especially in tier 2 and 3 cities and towns and this association acts as a catalyst to fuel growth in the sector,” said Prakash Sangam, CEO, redBus.
