HYDERABAD: Bus passengers, like air and railway passengers, can now book tickets online.

RedBus is the first-of-its-kind online travel portal catering to bus ticket bookings to offer consolidated bus ticket reservation facility. Mentored by The Indus Entrepreneurs (TiE), an international organisation of entrepreneurs, the service is being launched in the city after its success in Bangalore, according to a press release.

Founded by three BITS-Pilani graduates, RedBus will enable passengers to select seats from the seat layout. They can choose from multiple travel operators and make online payment using secure payment gateway.

Besides being a 24x7 online booking facility, the service also caters to home delivery requests. For information, log on to www.redbus.in.
