Now it will be much easier to book bus services as IRCTC is giving you the option to book your bus tickets from its web portal. The Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) has recently added a new tab for bus booking services covering 22 states and three Union Territories.
The online bus booking facility went live on January 29 2021 and the integration of this facility over the mobile application is likely to get completed in the first week of March, which will allow bus travelers to book bus tickets from their smart devices.
The customers can also visit the new microsite www.bus.irctc.co.in to book the tickets of their choice and can also make seat selection according to their own preferences and comfort.
In order to provide a convenient online booking platform to the citizens of this nation, the corporation has tied up with over 50,000 state road transport as well as private bus operators covering 22 states and three Union Territories. According to IRCTC, it will be so easy to book tickets now as the customers won’t have to stand in long queues in order to make reservations, and six reservations can be made with a single transaction.
The portal includes a wide variety of buses such as Volvo Bus, AC, or Non-AC, depending upon the customer needs. The customer can easily choose from this wide variety of options and select an appropriate bus service considering their amenities, routes, ratings, reviews, and bus images (inside-out both). Customers only have to enter departure and destination place along with the day of departure and click on the search button to get a list of all the buses that will be headed to that route.
