New Delhi, November 1, 2013: The world's largest online bus ticketing system -- BusIndia.com -- was formally launched yesterday, by Oscar Fernandes, the central Minister for Road Transport and Highways.
The Busindia.com portal brings together state-operated bus transport operators across the country under a single window, thus facilitating passengers to plan their bus travel across Indian cities with ease. BusIndia.com enables passengers to do trip booking and hotel booking, providing a full itinerary experience for the first time in Indian bus booking.
Radiant Info Systems Ltd. (Radiant Info), the Bangalore based technology solutions company, has developed Busindia.com in partnership with the Central Institute of Road Transport (CIRT). Radiant Info, earlier launched India’s first online bus ticket reservation system in 2006 for the Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC).
BusIndia.com has already integrated 16 transport corporations from Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Odisha, Meghalaya and Gujarat in Phase 1. Shortly, Phase 2 will see the inclusion of transport corporations from Andhra Pradesh, Rajasthan, Maharashtra, Jammu & Kashmir, Goa, Puducherry and Goa along with other state-owned transport corporations.
Said Oscar Fernandes: "This is an important milestone in transportation services in our country and I am proud that we have been able to achieve this. I compliment the efforts of Radiant Info and their team who have relentlessly worked over several years to integrate all state services into one single portal.”
