A number of websites have come up recently that offers online bus ticket reservation. All of them , with the exception of Raj Travels, concentrate on destinations in a particular state or region. However in spite of several inherent limitations these sites do go a long way towards making the reservation process a simpler and transparent process.

I have listed the websites I have managed to come across so far.It would be great if other members could add to the list and describe their experience while actually using one of these sites for booking a seat.


www.rajnationalexpress.in - North,Central,West and South India (State/Region covered)

www.ticketvala.com - Maharashtra and surrounding states

www.prasannatours.com - Maharashtra

www.yatra.com - Maharashtra/Goa/Karnataka/Andhra Pradesh

www.redbus.in - South India

www.iticket.in - South India

www.ksrtc.in - Karnataka

www.customerneedz.com - South India

www.kpntravels.in - Kerala/Karnataka/Tamil Nadu

www.himachalhotels.in - Himachal Pradesh/Delhi

www.himachaltourism.net - Offers only Delhi-Manali booking at present

For what it's worth, can't vouch for these nor even if they do reservations, thought I'd drop them here though. Probably picked up from IM anyway:

I noticed this website advertised on Indiamike today in the "Sponsored Links" section :-

www.gobyroad.com - Maharashtra/Gujarat/Madhya Pradesh

According to the press release at the launch of the site abhibus.com they have a tie-up with 17 fleet owners and plans to cater to 200 cities;however as of now the reservation facility is available only on Hyderabad to Mumbai and Vijayawada route.

Also Hyderabad to Mumbai, Pune and Shirdi, also Hyderabad to Bangalore and Chennai.

Nice, easy to understand website that shows all timetables (last column is journey time not arrival time), allows you to choose a seat.

It's just a pity that buses are priced higher than 3-tier air con in trains.

It is because of "Flexibility" the travels companies and passengers have. Bus driver can stop the bus at any place in the city and the passengers have the privilege to board the bus at different boarding points of their choice. Lets not talk about traffic rules and regulations here. Also, their "push strategy" , i mean, tickets are sold by their agents add to ticket price. And in weekends and festival period, the rush is so high that at times tickets are sold in high premiums. There was a time when one of my friends bought A/C Volvo bus ticket B'lore to chennai for Rs1000 as against normal price of Rs550 in festival period.

I just checked for Rajahmundry-Chennai on a Tuesday and it was Rs750, the train fare in 3 tier air con is Rs661.

The buses look good, and I understand the flexibility, but prefer the on-board flexibility of trains.

It's always good to know the alternatives though.
