Rajasthan State Road Transport Corporation (RSRTC) has recently launched an Android application to book bus tickets on mobile. Earlier there was facility of booking tickets only from their website. Providing a mobile app is very good initiative specially from a Government department.
Application has good user interface. They have mentioned on the app page on Google Play that the app has been developed according to Android Human Interface Guidelines. The very first step is to register from within the app. The registration form is very short and simple and I did not face any difficulties during registration. I got my login details both via Email and SMS within seconds.
Main sections of the application are as below –
- Book Tickets
- Search buses from source to destination.
- Actual seating layout is presented for choosing seats according to preference.
- Payment can be done by Credit Card / Debit Card / Net Banking or through Prepaid Wallet
- My Bookings
- Cancel Ticket
- Failed Bookings
- View Failed Transactions
- Wallet Credits
- Payment can be done via Prepaid Wallet as well. Money need to be deposited in designated bank account by Cash/Cheque or by doing a NEFT transfer. After that money deposit information can be send to RSRTC by filling a form in this section.
RSRTC has also developed a RSRTC Mobile App Portal along with the app. All facilities available on the app are also available on the portal except for Ticket Booking.
A lot of people travel to Jaipur from Delhi and vice-versa daily in RSRTC Volvo buses. This app should be useful for passengers specially for visitors traveling to Rajasthan.
