Advance booking of tickets are being done for all the buses that originate from Tamil Nadu to other states and also buses being operated within Tamil Nadu through the RedBus app or website. It is a practice to book tickets one month in advance from the date of journey.
During the Deepavali, Christmas and Pongal festival seasons majority of the people book bus tickets through RedBus app or website.
All of a sudden rumours were spread that tickets booked through the app will not be accepted by buses. Tamil Nadu Omni Bus Owners Association member said: "Rumours have been spread by the brokers` association that ticket booked through RedBus for Pongal will be invalid. This is however false. Omni bus owners have no role to play in this."
