When you think of long distance journeys, what are the transportation choices that spring up in your mind instantly? Trains and flights, of course. But our question is: why not buses? After all, they are economically more viable and seats are available even at the last minute? OK, we understand your doubts. The bus eco-system in India has not matured enough to infuse your interest. And that is why any traveler has double thoughts before booking a seat in long distance buses.
Loyal users of RailYatri would already know that we have been offering bus booking services over the last couple of years and more. And during our association with the bus sector, we have identified various problems existing in this essential travel domain. We were of course helped by the negative feedback and mails from our users. So, we decided to take it upon ourselves to find a solution to the longstanding problems in the Indian bus eco-system. And our first effort was to launch a bus service of our own. We truly mean it. RailYatri smart buses are owned and operated by us. This gives us more control over the operations and that in turn would help us make your bus journeys better than they ever were.
What is so special about RailYatri’s Smart Bus Service?
We saw this question coming, after all bus passengers often hear big claims only to find that the ground realities are not even close to the promises. But you can be rest assured that our bus service offers a solution to the common problems you face. After solving many problems associated with train travel in India, we at RailYatri have now decided to amend the follies in another high potential travel domain – Buses. And how would we do that? Simply by offering you services that none other has even thought of.
When you board a RailYatri smart bus we guarantee you…

Absence of timeliness is the biggest concern for the travelers, when it comes to bus travel. This is what we at RailYatri have tried to rectify.

#2: Assured daily service
In the past, we felt bad when you complained about the bus operator cancelling the trip on the exact date of journey. While we really cared about your inconveniences we did not have the authority to instruct the operator to run the bus come what may. But, now that we our own bus service, we are ready to offer you a guarantee on daily service. If you have booked a seat, the bus will arrive – that is our assurance.
#3: Breakdown Assistance
Bus breakdowns are a horrific experience, especially when it occurs in the middle of a forlorn highway. That is why we conduct detailed trials before any of our bus leaves its boarding point. We also keep a close eye on the health of the vehicle. So, there are hardly any chances of vehicle breakdowns.

When you board a RailYatri smart bus, your journey becomes our responsibility.
#4: Urinals inside Coach
What makes train journeys so comfortable? Well, there are many facets, but one of the most important aspects is the presence of toilets in the coaches.

This is can be a tough ask for the elderly as well as women passengers. So, we mitigated this problem. All our smart buses come fitted with clean and hygienic in-coach urinals.
