GSRTC Mulls On-line Booking

GSRTC mulls on-line booking

Ahmedabad : Gujarat State Road Transport Corporation (GSRTC) is hoping to rope in high-end travellers by starting on-line reservation and introduce air-conditioned buses. Officials said that two Volvo buses will be purchased to upgrade facilities. The corporation has already sent a proposal to the state government to buy 20 air-conditioned luxury buses.

"We realised that a certain segment of people were keeping away from GSRTC services only because there were no air conditioned buses," an official said.

GSRTC general manager BM Parmar said, "We are talking to banks and credit card service providers for starting on-line reservation system. This would be for luxury and express routes throughout the state."

Sources added a survey of passenger behaviour revealed that even the upper-middle income group preferred air conditioned buses. The route and fare are yet to be decided but would be in direct competition with private bus operators.

The new bus stops, like the one between Shivranjani and Nehrunagar, too are part of the effort to woo high-end travellers.
