RailYatri, the multi-modal intercity transportation network has launched its branded ‘IntrCitySmartBus’ on Bangalore-Chennai route.
It had recently launched services on several routes starting from Delhi to Lucknow, Kanpur, Shimla, Chandigarh, Amritsar, Ludhiana, Jalandhar and Manali.
A press release mentions: ‘RailYatri is projecting the IntrCitySmartBus model as a powerful substitute for trains and a convenient mode of transport for the modern-day budget traveller,’
Booking for this travel mode has to be done through the app of the website.
IntrCity promises to deliver on its four core virtues:
· Trained Professional Drivers
· Hassle-Free Boarding Assistance.
Flexibility and Provision for a refund:
The company is promising a 50 per cent refund if the scheduled departure gets delayed by more than 30 minutes. There is also a ‘Flexi-ticket’ feature that allows users to change travel at the last minute.
Co-founder and CEO’s view
The CEO and co-founder of RailYatri, Manish Rathi, said:
“The inter-city bus travel in this region is better organised than other regions but still lacked what the millennial of this city needs. Current bus aggregators were not able to solve regular commuters’ issues like on-time departure, convenient boarding and drop-off points, flexibility to change plans at the last hour. We thought of solving these issues and thus created a hassle-free, dependable ecosystem which is affordable, convenient and safe. You can book your bus seat and travel on the same day – all within just a few clicks!”
